Ahhh, the joy of diet soda!
I mean really – who wouldn’t love the idea of being able to get your “fizz-fix” from soda without all the unwanted side effects like calories and weight gain.
Thing is, according to mounting research, it appears diet soda may not be the guilt-free drink many hoped it would be. Case in point: A study presented at a 2011 meeting of the American Diabetes Association found a positive link between weight gain and diet soda consumption. OUCH!
But how can this be?
I mean, if something’s called “diet,” then it should obviously help you lose weight? Right?
Unfortunately, the answer is: Nope.
Check out my Fit 411 episode below where I explain how and why science says diet soda can make you gain weight. And FYI, this video is a nice little synopsis of a blog post that I previously wrote about diet soda, which you can read here.
