Pierre Dukan has developed a weight loss system, which does not limit the amount of food, but prohibits many foods, for example, sugar. What to replace it with? Let’s choose the options.
It has few calories, and it is not absorbed by the body. In addition, it is ten times sweeter than sugar.
However, this substance does have its drawbacks:
- one of its components is toxic, and therefore you can not use more than 0.6 g of this sugar substitute per day.
Produced in the form of both tablets and liquid form, this sweetener can be used for desserts and baking. One sweetener tablet corresponds by taste to one piece of sugar. A teaspoon of liquid substance can replace 4 tablespoons of sugar.
- a safe dose of the product is up to 7 mg per 1 kg of weight per day.
This is a natural sugar substitute, also known as honey grass. It is a natural sweetener, which contains no carbohydrates. It is not only safe for health, but also contains useful substances, like antioxidants.
Honey grass contains many mineral substances, like:
- vitamins A, B, and E.
Studies have shown that it is useful to include honey grass in the diet not only during the Dukan diet, but also in:
- metabolic disorders,
- diabetes mellitus.
Specialists consider stevia the best sweetener.
- safe dose is up to 35 grams per day.
It can be used for pastries and bread according to Dukan’s recipes. When choosing a sweetener, read the label. It should contain data about the manufacturer and the daily consumption norm.
One of the natural and harmless sweeteners is honey. Dukan forbids its consumption. An exception is the phase of the diet called “Consolidation”. We remind you that Dukan’s weight loss method consists of four phases:
The third stage of the diet is a kind of probation for the body. At this time, the products of the usual nutrition are gradually introduced into the nutrition. For example, you can afford a small portion of pasta or a small piece of pork once a week.
You are also allowed to recall on the taste of honey. Even in the days of the feast (the days when you are allowed to have products of your usual diet), you can not eat too much honey, since it is a very nutritious product.
Important note on artificial sweeteners
When choosing an artificial sweetener, you need to take into account that any of them can be consumed only in a safe dosage. Excess of the norm can cause negative changes and become a cause for chronic diseases.
During the Dukan diet, better give up any artificial sweetener. The fact is that they cause hunger, which increases appetite. When the body feels sweet taste, it expects the onflow of carbohydrates.
– Thus, you get the desire to eat more than you need, which leads to the suspension of the weight loss process. Note that most of the sugar substitutes are produced both in tablets and liquid form. This allows using them in cooking.
