I believe diet soda gets you fat and is bad for you, it causes cancer in lab animals which I don't believe in [ just adding my own feelings as to animal testing] you see all these over weight people with diet soda, you need a little sugar in your diet, just count calories, that's a good diet plan!!!!
Do NOT drink sodas. PERIOD. Diet sodas have few if any calories, but it's better to reduce or maintain your weight with exercise and good nutrition (which sodas are not). There is evidence that phosphates in sodas deplete your bones, which means drinking them may contribute to osteoporosis. I write this from experience. I went for a year on a diet soda crave -- 20 oz a day on weekdays, at work -- and my bone density plummeted 12%, to near the World Health Organization's standard measure for osteoporosis. That soda usage was virtually the only change in my diet / lifestyle. I did it only because it became available -- in large, 20-ounce bottles, no less.
Diet sodas can cause weight gain. Despite the fact that they themselves may be zero or little calories, the sugar substitutes used in sodas today create a food craving, causing the individual to ingest more calories than they normally would through overeating.
I wouldn't recommend diet sodas because they recovered tumors from people and found 80% of I can't remember but it was found in diet soda if that makes sense. But less fattening I don't know just thought you might want to know that. Good luck! Have a nice day.
I suggest not drinking soda at all... if it has sugars and etc, it would more than likely be "fattening"... Try just drinking water, tea, juices (but limit them, because juice has sugar too), or milk (almond milk had sugar also.) Teas and water might be best. If you can't wing yourself off of the sugars, switch to juices like orange or apple juice. :D Hope this helped!
Diet soda isn't fattening. It has zero calories. There are all kinds of rumors and studies...but if you don't eat you won't get fat. Just try one of those sparkling flavored waters. They tast yucky compared to Diet Coke, though :)
This is an odd question, since all diet sodas are non-fattening because they contain 0 or a negligible amount of calories. Do not be ensnared by the new hype that diet sodas make you fat. While some artificial sweeteners may stimulate a craving for real sugar, diet sodas in no way DIRECTLY cause weight gain. It is OK to drink them occasionally as long as you have an ounce of self-control - in other words, don't use a Diet Coke to wash down a Snickers and you'll be fine. The "diet soda makes you fat" rumor/myth is still very new and is contradicted by years of anecdotal evidence that replacing regular soda with diet soda can result in significant weight loss. Then there is the whole "diet soda causes cancer" scare. After years of scientific study, the worst that artificial sweeteners appear to cause in humans is a sensitivity/allergic-type reaction in a select few. It is understandable to be skeptical of artificial sweeteners, since natural is usually best. Whichever way you choose to sway - artificially or naturally sweetened soda (and by naturally sweetened I mean with real sugar, HFCS is neither natural nor calorie-free), use either sparingly, as a treat.
