Sugars? No thank you

Zuccheri? No grazie
[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]One of the great health benefits of the keto diet is getting rid of sugar cravings . At the same time, there are several substitutes that you can use instead.
First of all, these alternatives are non-caloric and secondly they will allow you to enjoy sweet rewards but without the carbohydrates.
Alternative sweeteners, sugar substitutes, are not all the same in terms of taste or benefits. In addition, since they are not metabolized in the same way as traditional sugar they can be used to follow a healthier lifestyle.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column][vc_custom_heading text="Which sugars are they allowed on the ketogenic diet?” use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text]The main ones are:
  • Stevia: It is one of the most popular sweeteners in the world. Being very sweet, a small amount will suffice. If you've tried it, you already know it may have a bitter aftertaste. Stevia contains no carbohydrates or calories and has a glycemic index of 0.
    It is considered a non-food as it contains neither carbohydrates nor calories. This makes the sweetener very suitable for low-calorie diets. It has a sweetening power 300 times higher than white sugar and, deriving from a plant, is rich in vitamins and antioxidants.
  • Erythritol
    Erythritol / erythritol has 60-80% sweetness compared to conventional table sugar and contains no calories.
    Erythritol is already absorbed in the small intestine and is therefore not as laxative as other sugar alcohols. On the contrary, it has no negative effects on dental health: studies have shown that it can even help prevent tooth decay. It also has no effect on blood sugar and the associated insulin level.
    All classic sugars are therefore to be avoided: white sugar, brown sugar, honey, maple syrup and coconut sugar.
[/vc_column_text][vc_custom_heading text="Why is sugar addictive?" use_theme_fonts="yes"][vc_column_text] Sugar , in addition to promoting weight gain, it is addictive because it acts on the same areas of the brain as drugs, nicotine and addictive substances. Sugar together with refined fats and carbohydrates (sweets, pizza, bread, pasta, ice cream, etc.) is addictive by stimulating those areas of the brain used for the sense of gratification and satisfaction.
While sugar addiction obviously has less of an impact than addiction to drugs and nicotine, the underlying principle of addiction is the same.
A high amount of refined carbohydrates such as sugar or glucose arriving at these centers favors a greater release of dopamine , a neurotransmitter that gives a feeling of gratification, satisfaction and well-being.
Unfortunately, as with other substances, the effect does not last long and the brain demands more and more sugar to reach those levels of satisfaction. For this reason, the desire for sweets and sugar increases, but also bread and pizza.[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]Fortunately, our brain can be rehabilitated and re-accustomed to a diet with a reduced intake of refined carbohydrates.
This is the magic of keto! Once the sugar withdrawal has subsided, you will feel more in control and cravings will decrease.
