3 Sugar Substitutes That Actually Burn Fat & Boost Weight Loss (Plus 2 That Can Increase Cravings & Increase Weight Gain)

3 Sugar Substitutes That Actually Burn Fat & Boost Weight Loss (Plus 2 That Can Increase Cravings & Increase Weight Gain)

There’s a lot of bad information out there about sugar and sugar substitutes… especially when baking.

Some sites have “healthy” desserts that are loaded with maple syrup or honey.

But both maple syrup and honey are little better than table sugar in disguise!

Your body may have to work slightly harder to burn either of these… but ultimately, both still spike your blood sugar just like table sugar!

And of course, other sugar substitutes like aspertame, splenda, and saccharine have tons of studies and data showing how harmful they can be…especially for your gut bacteria (more on that in a minute).

So when making this list, we consulted Doctor Masley, and these are the 3 sugar substitutes that “made the grade” for him:

3 Sugar Substitutes That Actually Burn Fat & Boost Weight Loss (Plus 2 That Can Increase Cravings & Increase Weight Gain)

1) Stevia

Stevia is an extract of a South American plant that is naturally sweet, and contains zero calories.

While other zero-calorie sweeteners have mountains of studies saying they’re bad for you…

Stevia has been given the “green light” by several scientific, peer-reviewed, PubMed surveys.

(PubMed is the study database that doctors use to better inform their medical decisions).

It’s Dr. Masley’s preferred sweetener of choice, and especially when baking it works really well to maintain the proper texture and level of sweetness.

When baking, for every cup of sugar a recipe calls for, you can replace it with:

  • 1 teaspoon of liquid stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia extract powder, or
  • 1 tablespoon concentrated stevia liquid

You can also use packets, but it’d require about 20 packets of stevia to equal one cup of sugar!

2) Xylitol

Xylitol is a sugar alcohol that’s extracted from different types of wood.

It contains 2.4 calories per gram, which is 60% of the calories found in sugar.

Most importantly, Xylitol doesn’t spike insulin levels. Frequent insulin spikes lead to insulin resistance, which leads to your body storing more energy as fat, instead of using it to power your cells.

The only downside is that some people don’t tolerate Xylitol well, and report gastrointestinal problems.

So while Xylitol isn’t a “zero calorie” sweetener, it is significantly better for you than sugar.

Better still, in recipes, you can use it at a 1:1 ratio with the sugar a recipe calls for.

So if a recipe calls for 1/4 cup sugar, you can use 1/4 cup xylitol instead.

3) Coconut Sugar

Coconut sugar has the same amount of calories as regular table sugar.

So why does it make the list?

Because it doesn’t spike insulin like table sugar does.

Not only that, but it also contains inulin, which is a substance that lowers coconut sugar’s glycemic index.

Plus it contains more antioxidants than table sugar, as well as zinc, potassium, and calcium.

So while it’s not great for you, it’s decidedly better than regular sugar.

That said, whenever possible, you can substitute in stevia or xylitol for coconut sugar when making a dessert with them.

Remember, whenever there’s one of these sweeteners in a recipe, it’s optimized for their taste.

You might find that Stevia tastes great to you, so feel free to substitute it in wherever you see Xylitol or coconut sugar instead.

Remember, that for every cup of Xylitol or coconut sugar you see in a recipe, you can sub in:

  • 1 teaspoon of liquid stevia
  • 1/2 teaspoon stevia extract powder, or
  • 1 tablespoon concentrated stevia liquid

2 Sugar Substitutes You Should Avoid At All Costs…

I mentioned aspartame and sucralose as sweeteners you should absolutely avoid.

Aspartame is commonly known as “Nutrasweet” (it’s the blue packets in the coffee shop).

Sucralose is commonly known as “Splenda” (it’s the yellow packets in the coffee shop).

Both of these have a bunch of toxic effects on your body that aren’t easy to repair.

Aspartame is especially bad for you.

A recent study in Current Diabetes Reviews showed that aspartame can not only induce weight gain instead of weight loss…

But it also suggested that aspartame releases the stress hormone cortisol, which causes your body to pack on pounds.

And as I mentioned before, aspartame and sucralose were in the “Dirty 6” group of artificial sweeteners that have been proven to kill off good gut bacteria.

Why is that so important?

When good gut bacteria is killed off… that means that bad gut bacteria runs rampant in your gut.

The bad gut bacteria reproduce at a crazy fast rate… and instead of burning food for energy, they store it as fat in fat cells.

That means that by eating artificial sweeteners like aspartame and sucralose, you’re putting your gut at a HUGE disadvantage.

So trying to lose weight while taking in these artificial sweeteners is almost like trying to climb a ladder with an arm and a leg tied behind your back.

And like I said, it’s technically POSSIBLE… but you’re putting yourself at a HUGE disadvantage.

The “Accidental Gut Secret” That Helps Supercharge Your Weight Loss…

That’s why stevia, xylitol, and coconut sugar are much better for you than “traditional” sugar substitutes like aspartame and sucralose:

Stevia, xylitol, and coconut sugar don’t mess with your gut bacteria nearly as much!

“Bad” sweeteners essentially just “kill off” all of the bacteria in your gut…

And this die-off allows bad bacteria to take hold… and thrive.

Those bad gut bacteria process food into fat… instead of using it as fuel.

And they make it almost impossible to lose weight.

So if you want to lose weight… you need your good gut bacteria to be able to thrive.

Until recently though, the gut has been a total mystery, even to the leading scientists in the field…

And none of them were able to figure out exactly what kinds of gut bacteria were “good for you”… and which ones weren’t.

But that all changed very recently…

That’s because there was a recent scientific breakthrough by famous TV Doctor Steven Masley.

He discovered a brand new “superstrain” of helpful gut bacteria that chews through fat… turns it into energy… and helps you lose weight.

It’s actually a combination of four specific gut bacteria strains proven to help you lose weight…

And for the first time, Dr. Masley discovered these all in one place!

In this short, free presentation, Dr. Masley will show you:

  • What these “superstrain” gut bacteria are
  • How much of them to take, and
  • Exactly where to find them.
