Why Diet Soda is Delusional

I have friends who drink diet soda on a regular basis.  They sometimes go through 4-6 cans or more per day.  Their rationale?  Diet soda has 0 calories, so it’s okay.  It’s not possible to gain weight from diet soda because it adds nothing to your calorie profile, right? Wrong.

Watch this video to learn how diet soda, with its chemicals and acidic property, can mess up your metabolism.  The last thing you want to do is to screw around with your metabolism, because it regulates your weight by telling your body how many calories to burn each day. If your body is getting the wrong signals, you’re going to gain weight.  Studies have shown that people who drink diet sodas are more likely to become obese than people who drink the regular sugared stuff (which is not that great for you either).

Wake up Dorothy, because you can get fat from drinking a 0 calorie beverage.  Come to think of it, I don’t know anyone who regularly drinks diet soda who has a healthy figure. You can’t have your [artificial] sugar and eat it, too. Just goes to show that you can’t fool your body with chemicals.  It’s going to find a way to get what it needs, even if it has to break down the calcium in your bones to do it.

What’s the best o calorie drink for your body?  Water.  Do something healthy for yourself and drop the sodas TODAY!

    Great post! So many people just don’t know the facts behind he drinks or the food. Diet for instance is so full of chemicals a d the artificial sweetener Aspartame is the single biggest aggravator to MS. This video is eye opening for all of us. Tha is for sharing this!

      Thank you Mike. So many of us don’t even think about the choices we make about what we put in our bodies anymore… But with encouragement and knowledge, I can’t think of anyone who would want to do that to their body intentionally. Jade

    I couldn’t agree more Jade! Thanks for this great info. I’m a reformed soda addict and it’s been over a month since I had soda.
