Diet Soda Does the Opposite

1004A University of Texas study has concluded that with every daily can of diet soda, a person increased their risk of being overweight by a shocking 41%! The sugar substitutes found in diet sodas (such as aspartame, sucralose and saccharin) could be to blame. Because these sweeteners provide zero calories, your taste buds relay to your brain that you’re consuming something, yet body doesn’t gain any energy. Studies show that these empty calories throw off your body’s ability to properly judge your consumption, which then causes you to overeat and finally, gain weight.*

Kick your soda habit and opt for the healthiest available alternative: water flavored with slices of detoxifying citrus fruit. If you’re craving carbonation, enjoy some mineral water in moderation. If you are in need of a caffeine boost, reach for some green tea, which, unlike diet sodas, can quench your thirst while offering up some cleansing antioxidants.

Diet Sodas

Aspartame, which is the artificial sweetener in almost all diet sodas, contains toxic methanol. Methanol breaks down into phenylalanine and aspartic acid, both of which can cause severe headaches, seizures, vision impairment, dizziness, rashes, extreme fatigue, depression, personality changes, confusion, memory loss, weight gain, diabetes and many other health problems. Aspartame is also in breakfast cereals and chewing gum. It is highly addicting and 200 times sweeter than sugar.*
Diet sodas don’t help you manage your weight; they actually make you fat and sick. Let’s stop drinking all diet sodas as of today.
