The truth about Diet Coke (and sweeteners in general)

In the past, we have discussed about the negative effects of sugar and insulin (summary: avoid sugar as much as you can, both for health and fat loss). That’s why we advice our readers: if they must have a soft drink, they should prefer the diet ones.

However, recently various sources have been spreading the word that even sweeteners raise insulin, so there’s no point in them.

What is the truth then?

The truth is the following: neither aspartame, nor saccharin, nor sucralose affect insulin levels significantly.

Nobody of course can claim that diet drinks are healthy. But at least, get your facts straight.
