Sugar substitutes

Is it okay to use sugar substitutes in unsweetened fruit drinks?

I don't recommend any sugar substitutes for the cabbage soup diet week.

Stevia on cabbage soup diet

by Jeanne

Can Stevia be used to sweeten tea or
cranberry juice? Also what seasonings can be used on veggies and soup?


Hi Jeanne,

ok, here is our opinion on Stevia, Splenda, & other sweeteners. We don't recommend it for the cabbage soup diet, because they all influence your insuline level and may cause strong hunger feelings. And this makes it very hard stick to the cabbage soup diet.

By the way, the reason for allowing the "cranberry juice" is the fact, that it is sour and can't be drunken in large quantities...Adding stevia to the cranberry juice would cause the contrary.

And here is another fact about Stevia:
The FDA has refused to approve stevia. The reson herefore is its possible cancer-causing effect.

Check the following link, íf you are looking for some motivating and allowed cabbage soup diet cheats including some tips for veggy and soup seasonings besides of low sodium cubes.

All the best,
Gabriela

Another 2 cents on Stevia

My suggestion with Stevia: Look at the ingredients. You can find Stevia sweeteners that contain only the plant (look at your natural foods stores), but if it has erythritol, stay away. Erythritol is a sugar alcohol, and is often added to Stevia sweeteners. Sugar Alcohols are compounds which are notorious for causing bloating and artificial insulin responses.
While it is probably best to stay away from all artificial sweeteners, I have used little bits of pure stevia on the diet, and I find that it helps me stay on track simply because I am much more likely to go crazy if there isn't at least something with a little taste!

Stevia
by: Anonymous

Stevia comes from a plant. It is NATURAL. What natural things give people cancer? Splenda and Equal and Nutraweet are all ARTIFICIAL and man made. The only reason the gov't allows them is because they are bought off by pharmaceutical companies. Splenda mimics the effect of multiple Sclerosis in healthy adults and the other stuff has been proven to cause cancer, but the gov't never warns us about that. Please stop lumping Stevia together with artificial sweeteners.

Diabetis

by Susan

I am diabetic and had gastric bypass surgery 6 years ago.
I have gained 6 - 10 lbs, I am going on vacation and want to lose it. Is the cabbage soup diet good for me? I am insulin dependent.


Dear Susan,

I regret - but I'm not allowed to give you here any medical consultation. Please ask your doctor.

All the best,
Gabriela

Artificial sweetners on the cabbage soup diet?

Yes/no?

Kind regards, Steve


Hi Steve,
some cabbage soup diet plans allow artificial sweeteners we don't recommend them - they make you hungry and this makes it harder stick to the cabbage soup diet.

All the best,
Gabriela
