Diet Soda is a MYTH!

Based on the research made by the University of Texas Health Science Center, Diet Soda isn't really a Diet, says by some Science Researchers.




From Yahoo!:




Get ready to ditch your soda habit. I’m kicking Diet Coke — it takes time, and I’m down to five a week from a high of 12, but it’s worth it.

Here’s why: Recent research has shown that artificial sweeteners in soda may interfere with your body’s ability to estimate how many calories you’ve ingested, so you eat more than you need.

In a new rat study, animals that ate fake sugar consumed more calories overall and gained weight, compared to those that didn’t eat artificially sweetened treats.

This is just one study, but it’s enough to make me want to kick the can habit. Need more convincing? For every diet soda you sip daily, your risk of becoming overweight can rise by 37 percent, according to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.

We also know that regular soda is a total sugar bomb — most people I know gave it up long ago. At roughly 225 calories a pop, a 20-ounce bottle of regular soda packs nearly as many calories as a chocolate bar (but is much less satisfying).

Typically, soda also contains zero nutrients — so who needs it? Still have some soda around? Fine, stow it for guests who haven’t decided to quit. Next time you want a fizz hit, try seltzer with lime (or for a caffeine fix, green tea).






So, a warning. If you're a Diet Soda type of person, then you wasting your time while you don't realize that you're gaining weight.
Good thing I'm not that addict to soda. ^__^

but splenda makes your internal organs shrink, wouldn't that mean that you are lighter? I don't know, but shrinking internal organs sound like fun to me

I prefer drinking the original. For me diet somehow tastes different (the bad kind). Maybe it is because I'm weird? I don't think there are differences between the two for the taste. How about for the people with diabetes? My old teacher drank Diet Pepsi, because of that reason. I don't understand how real sugar and artificial are so different...they are both sweeteners aren't they?

But they tricked us. It's not Diet Soda, it's the same soda with less sugar and taste. Ohhhhh, the frauds. >_>

diet soda along with other foods that says 30% or cetain percent less fat really means they have less fat then their origenal product so is does not mean u can eat it as much as u like. but if u have to choose between a diet coke or a normal coke the diet one is the way 2 go it cuz have less fat then a normal coke

Meh, soda sucks. I drink orange juice and fruit smoothes instead of that stuff. Tried eating at Subway with diet coke and it tasted like normal coke with less sugar and taste. Which is bad.
