I saw a study a few weeks ago that mentioned there was a danger to consuming artificial sweeteners along side simple carbohydrates. The short of this study is: when participants in this study ingested a drink that contained both artificial sweeteners and simple carbohydrates, these participants showed a change in their brains to the perceived sweetness as well as changed their insulin sensitivity.
Here is a link to an article that describes the study: https://www.medicalnewstoday.com/articles/combining-carbs-and-sweeteners-could-affect-insulin-sensitivity.
Here is a link to the actual study: https://www.cell.com/cell-metabolism/fulltext/S1550-4131(20)30057-7#%20
The long term implications of these changes in the brain are that you are more likely to have high blood sugar and contribute to weight gain.
Has anyone else seen this study and if so, do you have any more information on what this could mean for consuming artificial sweeteners alongside carbohydrates?
