BETTER FOR CUTTING/LEANING OUT

  1. Splenda is a sugar substitute, and sugar alcohol is an entirely different macros. It is not lower calorie at all, actully it's a tiny bit higher. It does however have a lower GI effect on blood sugar (less insulin response).

    Glycerin is the most used these days.

    Are you sure about that? I would think that since it is only partially digested and some is past unused then in the end the calorie content would be lower.

  3. Tha actuall calorie conten is 4.9 per gram (if memory serves) however what your body does with it is a diiferent situation.

    Like fiber, fiber yet a carbohydrate that yields 4 calaories per gram, is treated different as your body has to burn caloried just to proccess it.

    Get it? Or am not making ane sense?

  4. works good for me then. low GI carbs keep me sane.

  5. Calorie content does vary with each type though. I cant remember which was which but the range was something like 2.9-4.7 cal/g. Sorbitol, maltitol, and the xylitol are common sugar alcohols.

    While they may have less impact on blood glucose than comparable non-zero calorie sweeteners they are non necessarily good choices. As mentioned they can act as laxatives (a lot for some ppl).

    Anyone know how these are metabolised in the body? Fructose is usually lower GI than a lot of starchy foods yet it is not the most desirable carb source. Additionally, their alcohol properties may lead to other drawbacks.

  6. I know a guy that couldn't start his car that had a breathaliser (sp) on it after eating a protein bar. HAHA, that was funny I saw him for 30 mins outside my store just blowing in that damn thing.

    Yeah, this was what I was getting at. Sort of like Olestra. It had a caloric value but since it pretty much escaped digestion, it had no caloric value inside the body.
