Study: Drinking Diet Soft Drinks to Lose Weight Doesn't Help
Diet Coke and Coke Zero are two of the most popular soft drinks on the planet. They're sweet and tasty, but don't have any calories. Quite tempting when you're trying to shed pounds. However, decades of diet soft drink consumption have not helped America slim down. How could this be?
In a sweeping meta-study published last week, researchers found no compelling evidence of health benefits of artificial sweeteners used in beverages and foods. Over 56 studies were reviewed, seeking differences between consumers of sugary products and consumers of artificially sweetened products in terms of weight, heart health, blood glucose levels, and even mental health.
The conclusion reached by the reviewers: there is no statistically significant benefit to consuming artificially sweetened products vs. those that contain sugars. Translated - switching from regular Coke to Diet Coke won't make you skinny.
What to do with this information?
Avoid soft drinks. Hydrate with water. If you do enjoy the fizzly sweetness of a cola, enjoy a sugary beverage once in a blue moon and treat it like a dessert. View orginal article here > https://www.fooducate.com/app#!page=post&id=5C333817-4482-FA7A-402A-A3BEDC41AF9B
