Donít believe the hype

I use Splenda all the time.
These edicts from a ďcelebrityĒ physician are nothing new.
Dr. Fung is saying nothing new that Dr. Allan Howard, from the United Kingdom, has proven over 40 years ago. Dr. Howardís research confirmed the need for macronutrients and micronutrients which was the impetus for him developing the Cambridge Diet in the late 70s and early 80s.
Obesity causes insulin resistance. Therefore, ketosis is a condition that will attempt to reverse this fat storage tendency.
I did my research, Dr. Fung is 40 years too late. He is an epigone. Fasting or intermittent fasting may cause metabolic changes in your body that may not be healthy, therefore, the Cambridge Diet utilizing carbohydrates, fats, and proteins in the appropriate ratio will utilize your excess fat for energy. This is the basis of the Cambridge diet. and users can use it for an extended period of time. As with any diet, it works if you follow it. However, what are the consequences of poor nutrition intake?
Using Splenda (Dextrose, maltodextrin, sucralose) is a drop in the ocean when it comes to utilizing a sweetener for your particular taste in trying to approach weight loss. Itís hard enough to remain on a restricted caloric diet without having something sweet. I put Splenda in my tea each night and in my Cambridge shake each morning!!
I am a perinatal specialist, diabetologist and surgeon for almost 50 years and Cambridge (which is a modified fast) is the way to go in order to burn fat, depress your appetite and attain ketosis. This intermittent fasting may sound great, but it does not allow enough time to develop a prolonged ketosis and therefore, in my humble opinion, it is unsustainable.
I hope I have addressed your concerns.
