Artificial sweeteners on the cabbage spoup deit

by Carolyn
(Pennsylvania)

I've seen the previous posts about artificial sweeteners and diet sodas are not recommended due to it producing high hunger sensations. But my question is, if you can "over come" the hunger "pains" does the artificial sweeteners hinder your weight loss?

Hi Carolyn!
Excellent question! If you can overcome hunger pains, artificial sweeteners won't hinder your weight loss process.

But please keep in mind that this 7 day cabbage soup diet week is also a great opportunity to purify your body and prepare it for a healthy longterm nutrition. In that case all artificial substances are contraproductive.

All the best,
Gabriela

Artificial Sweeteners and the Cabbage Soup Diet

by Melissa
(Lexington, KY)

Are artificial sweetners allowed in the cabbage soup diet; in iced tea, or on grapefruit, etc?

Dear Melissa,
there exist "older" cabbage soup diet plans that allow artificial sweeteners but we don't recommend them. Why?

The experience of many cabbage soup dieters showed that those drinks/coffee or food with artificial sweeteners make very hungry and this fact for sure makes it harder stick to the diet week.

But even after the cabbage soup diet you should watch your intake of artificial sweeteners. Did I mention that artificial sweeteners save the food industry a lot of money - as those sweeteners make only a fraction of the cost of natural sweeteners. So it shouldn't surprise you why drinks or foods with artificial sweeteners are marketed that aggressively.

All the best,
Gabriela

Artificial Sweetener and csd

by Johan
(Denmark)

Im a heavy coffee drinker but Im trying to cut down to 3 cups a day on this diet. I dont use milk in my coffee but I do use artifical sweetener.

How will this effect my diet and do you recommend that I stop using the artificial sweetener ?


Hi Johan,
the problem with the artificial sweetener is that it will make you very hungry, this again makes ist very hard to stick to the whole diet week. From my experience: Those people who can't finish the 7 day cabbage soup diet are mostly those, who add artificial sweetener to their coffee and in consequence they are experiencing hunger cravings.
For best weight loss results - please stay away from artificial sweeteners and limit your coffee intake to 2-3 cups per day maximum.

All the best,
Gabriela
