    Are Artificial Sweeteners Really a Safe Alternative to Sugar?

    Are Artificial Sweeteners Really a Safe Alternative to Sugar?

    Artificial sweeteners might be one of the most controversial topics in nutrition. Some people claim that they are dangerous and others will say that they are perfectly safe. 
    In today's episode we are going to discuss some of the most recent research on artificial sweeteners that has been published in the last few years that has actually caused me to change my mind a little on the topic recently. 
    Here are the citations to the studies I cover in the episode: 
     
    Acute blood sugar responses 
    Longer term consumption and weight and glucose intolerance - 
    Study on sucralose from Huberman podcast

    Nutrition is a Science, Not an Opinion

    Nutrition is a Science, Not an Opinion

    Nearly everyone has an opinion on nutrition.
    Listening to everyone's opinion will leave you confused and overwhelmed.
    So how do we know what to listen to and who to trust?
    In this episode, I discuss the difference between opinion-based and evidence-based nutrition. 
    And discuss why you must get your information from people providing evidence for their claims and not just giving their opinion.

Finally a trustworthy source

Dr. Chavez discusses facts about nutrition and health and does not seem to be wanting to sell a product. I really appreciate him taking the time and I hope he continues his podcast.

Adrian is a wealth of information

I actually love how they are shorter episodes. He’s a great educator and I’m excited to keep listening and learning.

Science-based information

With all of the “influencers” spouting bad nutritional information, it’s great to hear a reasonable voice who backs it up with cited research.
