According to science sugar-free is bad for many reasons. So is regular sugar. 80% of sugar is man made. Why is this a problem? The body cannot metabolize man made products. The body will try as this is what the body is designed to do. The body will try to break the item down, which is the reason why you feel lethargic from the body being overtaxed. Once the body realizes it cannot break down an ingredient it then gets stored in weak sites of the body prompting disease, sickness or illness overtime.
However, every “body” is different (for a variety of reasons) and people’s will be affected differently by the foods they eat. The key is to find those foods that work against your body at work then find another food item that has similar flavor and texture to replace it.
What’s more valuable than data behind a product is how your body responds to it. Instead, of allowing science or experts tell you what you should eat learn how to allow your body to determine for the best results from weight loss, overall health, and fitness.
By the way, I choose sugar free products for jello and most fudgesicles. When it comes to syrups I purchase the real thing. Real unfiltered syrups are naturally non-processed. So, even though I may choose sugar with some products other products I choose sugar-free. Why? Because how my body responds to the food.
