Diet drinks and food actually trigger weight gain and diabetes, says new study

Artificial Sweeteners

A sweet-tasting, lower-calorie drink can trigger a greater metabolic response than drinks with higher calories, explaining the association between artificial sweeteners and diabetes discovered in earlier studies, researchers said. "Calories are only half of the equation; sweet taste perception is the other half". These sweeteners are less in calorie, but the consequences are more which includes diabetes.

Batch with diet soft drink consumption resulted in eating more as their brain did not register calorie count. Metabolism of energy becomes less while the energy as well the sweetness are not matched and signals transferred to the brain gets inaccurate or weak.

In the study that was published in Current Biology, the brains of 15 people who consumed diet drinks and others who drank regular ones were scanned.

"Our bodies evolved to efficiently use the energy sources available in nature", Small said.

Dana Small, Professor at Yale University, "A calorie is not a calorie. Either may affect metabolic health".

They found when there was a "mismatch" between sweetness and calories - as is often the case with diet drinks or foods because they are not as sugary - the calories fail to trigger the body's metabolism.

"The most important implication is namely the fate of calories consumed in the mismatch conditions". British experts, who are unconvinced about the study, are of the opinion that people who are concerned about taking diet drinks should stick to drinking water.

Diet drinks and meals could cause people to put on weight and trigger diabetes even when they are low-calorie.
