Monday Mythbuster #33: Artificial Sweeteners are Bad For You

Do you reach for artificially-sweetened beverages when you’re trying to cut down on calories? If so, you’re not alone – millions of people do the same.

But with this happening, many medical professionals and online fitness gurus portray artificial sweeteners as bad and even borderline toxic for the body.

So, should you give up diet drinks altogether? And is there a better way to satisfy your sweet tooth?

Read on to find out.

Types Of Artificial Sweeteners

There are many types of artificial sweeteners, all of which are way, way sweeter than sugar.

They are used in a variety of products, such as diet sodas, low-calorie foods, and sugar-free candy.

The most common types of artificial sweeteners are:

  • Stevia
  • Sucralose
  • Aspartame
  • Saccharin

So… Are Artificial Sweeteners Bad?

The bottom line is that there is no concrete evidence of adverse side effects of consuming artificial sweeteners.

While there are some studies that suggest a link between artificial sweeteners and health problems such as weight gain and diabetes, these studies are inconclusive.

In fact, many fitness professionals and bodybuilders believe that artificial sweeteners are safe and effective tools for weight loss and diabetes management.

Why? Because they allow you to satisfy sweet cravings without actually consuming calories.

Granted, there is a lot of debate surrounding the use of artificial sweeteners, and many people are skeptical about their safety.

But most of all, we should remember the main rule of thumb - Most things, in moderation are not bad for you!


So, if you’re looking to cut down on sugar intake but don’t want to give up your sweet tooth entirely, artificial sweeteners might be the perfect solution for you.

As with any food or drink choice, it’s important to do your own research and find the option that best suits your individual needs and preferences – but we think that artificial sweeteners have got a bad rap undeservedly, and they could be a valuable tool in your weight-loss arsenal.

In our opinion, artificial sweeteners are healthier for you than sugar. But natural sweeteners, organic honey and fruit, will be the healthiest for you.
