Diet Sodas Make You Fat
Jim Pierce - Staff Writer
Ever wonder why the majority of people who drink zero-calorie diet sodas are overweight?
Me too. Because if losing weight were all about the calories, then putting away a few zero-calorie diet drinks a day would seem like a great way to cut out calories and lose weight.
However, if this were the case... why are obesity statistics for diet soda drinkers showing the exact opposite?
To find out the answer to this age-old mystery, I called upon The University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio to get the unbiased truth.
In short, what I discovered was not only shocking... it was downright frightening for anyone including myself who has cracked open a diet soda.
According to the University study, drinking diet soda does nothing to help you lose or even control your weight1. In fact, it does the exact opposite and actually boosts your risk of packing on the pounds by a whopping 41% for every can or bottle you crack open each day.
This means if you drink two cans a day, your risk shoots up 82%. Drink 3 cans and your risk skyrockets to 123%. Consume just four small 12 oz cans and you just increased the risk of expanding your waistline by an incredible 164%!
To put these percentages in perspective, researches discovered those who drank two or more cans of diet soda per day ended up increasing their waist circumference five times more than those people who didn't drink diet soda2.
That's the bad news. The good news is drinking diet soda doesn't have to be the be-all, end-all sentence to weight gain. By simply replacing one can of diet soda with healthier drinks like water, green tea, seltzer water or coffee you can drastically cut the odds of you getting a bigger belly.
However, if you're not ready to put the breaks on your diet soda habit just yet… fitness celebrity and author of the book 4 Minute Abs™ Jake Hunter recommends a very simple way to speed up your metabolism, so the diet drinks you consume don't go straight to your waistline.
