Been keto since Nov '17. Not T2D or have any major health issues. Do keto for weight loss/health benefits.
I have made keto desserts sweetened with erythritol or a “keto-friendly” sweetener. Then I was introduced to “The Obesity Code” book and Dr. Fung. It was there I first really understood that even these ‘healthier’ sweeteners would spike insulin (even though they don’t raise blood sugar? Sorry, not a scientist, just repeating what I believe I’ve heard.) So Fung recommends avoiding them ALL - sugar and these sweeteners.
My question is: IF I’m going to indulge in a dessert occasionally is there any benefit to making a keto dessert with one of these sweeteners, or I might as well just have the real thing (sugar)? I’ve tried asking this question on one of the Fung FB groups and the admin shut it down w/o answering the question that “Dr. Fung doesn’t recommend the use of sweeteners.”
