Diet Sodas Contribute to Weight Gain

Diet Sodas Contribute to Weight Gain

Recent studies have shown that contrary to what many believe, diet sodas are actually worse for you than originally thought. While they don’t have the same sugar content that regular sodas do, diet sodas are still contributing to weight gain in many people.

There are also being studies conducted as to whether or not aspartame and other artificial sweeteners are responsible for causing Type 2 diabetes in some patients. If you are on a diet or trying to watch your weight sticking to water is your best beverage option. If you feel the need to drink a soda, limit your intake to one every few days, or one a week. The less you ingest of the extra calories and artificial sweeteners the more your waistline will thank you.
