Artificial Sweeteners: Ineffective Against Weight-Loss?

According to an article published by the Wall Street Journal, Dr. Harlan Krumholz, a cardiologist and Professor at Yale University School of Medicine, has “stopped [his] daily habit of diet drinks and [is] slowly removing these substances from the rest of his diet.”

He continues, “Rather than help me maintain a healthy weight, they(artificial sweeteners) like aspartame may be doing exactly what we thought they should be preventing. At the very least, they do not seem to help people keep weight off.” “If, in the end, we discover that large-scale consumption of diet drinks and foods helped fuel the obesity epidemic, it would be more than ironic. It would be tragic” According to a Scientific Report authored by a panel of 14 MDs, PhDs, PharmDs, and Scholars, “they found a mere seven trials, with a total of only 1,003 people, that evaluated consumption of the substances(non-nutritive sweeteners), for more than six months.”

“The bottom line was that they generally failed to find that sweeteners helped people lose weight. Since most people use sweeteners for the purpose of controlling or losing weight, if they were considered drugs instead of a food substance they would be deemed ineffective based on the best evidence available”

“They [also] found that people who consumed these sweeteners were more likely to have increases in weight and waistline, and a higher incidence of obesity, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular events.”

So, this begs the question. Are artificial sweeteners really helping? Moreover, they may even be harmful.

EarthWater Feature: Would You Drink Water That Looks Like This?

“The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” has been highlighting American entrepreneurs with a Building America series. EarthWater founder and CEO CJ Comu joined Monday’s “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” to talk about his unique business bringing nutrient-rich water to people through his online company based in Texas.

The unusual product is odorless and tastes like water — but it’s black because trace minerals straight from the Earth have been added, Comu explained. Calling himself a “natural entrepreneur,” Comu shared how the company started and what the product has done for his own health. He heard a personal testimony from someone who was drinking a liquid concentrate made with minerals sourced from deep in the Earth. Comu tracked down a mineral source, and he and his team spent a year coming up with their unique formula.

“It’s a bit of an oxymoron,” Comu said, describing EarthWater’s Organic Black Electrolyte Water, which is formulated to contain as many as 70 essential nutrients, according to the company.

To see more from Doc, visit his channel on TheBlaze and listen live to “The Morning Blaze with Doc Thompson” weekdays 6–9 a.m. ET, only on TheBlaze Radio Network.

What's a typical day for you like? 

I wake up, go workout at the boxing gym or go mountain biking, something to get the heart rate up. Then I go to my dad’s shop to help him build seats or work on any new projects he has, or I’ll go to BK Racing and spend some time with my No. 83 team.

How do you train for races? 

I do a lot of cardio and a lot of punching bag exercises. Nutrition is also a big deal to me.

If you could do any race over again, which would it be, and why? 

There are several I’d like to do over, but I can’t, so I try not to think too much about that. I just focus on not making the same mistakes again.

If your friends and family could describe you in three words what would those words be? 

Competitive, Leader, Passionate

What is the most daring thing you've done outside of racing? 

Nothing particularly daring yet, other than going 200+ mph in a racecar, but sky diving is on my bucket list.

If NASCAR decided to let you have a passenger, and you got to choose whomever, who would you pick?

I would invite Jesus, so he could take the wheel!

What was your experience with our products? Would you recommend it to others? 

I’m a water critic, and I’m very particular about what I drink. I love the FulHum water because of all of the nutrients that it helps replenish when I’m sweating in the racecar. I’d definitely recommend it to any of my fellow racecar drivers.

Any last words for our readers?
