Fake-Sugar Foods May Increase Hunger

| by Fit Bottomed Girls

Earlier this week we reviewed new sugar-free Ring Pops, and it got me thinking: I’ve really cut down on how many sugar-free goodies I eat. A few years ago, I would indulge in Diet Coke at least a few times a week, if not daily, and I’d down a sugar-free protein bar without blinking an eye. But now, with all of the research saying that fake-sugar products may actually increase hunger, which results in weight gain, I’m much more conscious of how much of it goes into my body. Not to mention that the fake stuff isn’t that good for you and it usually tastes weird. How about you?

Take the poll - how often do you eat sugar-free foods?

Feel free to explain further in the comments! This is a fun topic… —Jenn
