Be careful how you satisfy that sweet tooth

This article in today’s Huffington Post by Dr. Susan Dopart gives food for thought.

The first thing that struck me about the article was that I had heard it said before. As I kept reading though, it made sense in a way that casual statements about fake sweeteners had not done in the past.

There is no escaping from the fact that here in the U.S., we live in an overweight society. It had not occurred to me before, but it is not uncommon to see overweight people in restaurants drinking “diet” drinks. If artificial sweeteners were that good, why are the people who drink them getting fat?

As E.P. Agents, we find ourselves working long shifts, uncommon hours. Sometimes it is difficult to get “proper” food and we may have to depend on what we can grab in a fast food drive-through or drink at a 7-11.

Personally speaking, I have found myself relying more on artifical sweeteners these last few years – thinking that I was doing myself a favor. This article has made me rethink those decisions.
