Don’t Let Friends Eat Sugar-Alcohols or “Sugar-Free” Products…

May 24, 2022

Myth: Sugar-free foods won’t affect my diabetes.

You’ve been warned!  

Just eat the real thing.

I know that this may be an unpopular opinion.

However, devouring TONS of sugar-free foods normally means consuming a ton of sugar alcohols, which can lead to being on the porcelain throne for who knows how long.⁣⁣  

Why? ⁣⁣

Most sugar-free foods cause MASSIVE indigestion, and wreck your stomach and cause massive diarrhea.

They also taste pretty odd with significant aftertastes, so why eat them?

Those sugar alcohols also wipe out your good gut bacteria, and this can be detrimental to your immune system.

Gut bacteria is huge in the diabetes and auto-immune world, so it’s definitely not in your best interest to have the good ones wiped out. 

It is also important to remember that some sugar-free foods actually do also contain carbs.

The phrase “sugar-free” is often misunderstood as a “free” pass.

Labeling a food sugar-free does not mean a food is healthy, nor does it mean you shouldn’t limit how much of the food you are consuming. 

What some think are the smart choices (sugar-free diabetes snacks, sugar-free candy, or sugar-free drinks) are not always the best option.

If you are offered anything sugar free-run as fast as you can.
