Diet drinks and food actually trigger weight gain and diabetes, says new study

Artificial Sweeteners

The body has evolved to burn more calories if something tastes sweet because in nature sweeter substances contain more energy.

Artificial Sweeteners have been a controversial topic for nearly as long as they have been around.

Commenting on the paper, Dominic Dwyer, Professor of Psychology at Cardiff University, said: "What the paper does imply, correctly in my view, is that mismatches between calories and sweetness interfere with metabolism of calories in a way that could have negative impact on weight gain, diabetes, heart disease etc. but that determining the link between the unprocessed calories and metabolic health needs future work".

When we go on a diet, we often add artificially sweetened drinks and low-calorie dishes to help us meet our goal, but we may be tricking our metabolism into piling on even more weight and triggering diabetes, says a new study from Yale University.

Many processed foods contain similar mismatches, including yoghurts with low-calorie sweeteners. These sweeteners are less in calorie, but the consequences are more which includes diabetes. Metabolism of energy becomes less while the energy as well the sweetness are not matched and signals transferred to the brain gets inaccurate or weak.

According to Dana Small, Human bodies are emerged to use the natural sources of energy, but the modern foods in today's world consist of energy sources which are not seen by the body. "Either may affect metabolic health".

As a result, scientists witnessed a "mismatch", when the brain did not registerd that calories had been consumed, leading to eat more.

In the study that was published in Current Biology, the brains of 15 people who consumed diet drinks and others who drank regular ones were scanned. "Flavor, on the other hand, which occurs when taste and smell are integrated, is unique to particular energy sources (in nature), with preferences learned".

Professor Tom Sanders, of King's College London, said: "Saying a calorie is not a calorie is gobbledegook".
