Diet Soda: Good For Weight Loss But Also Bad For Weight Loss… Wait… What?

| Filed under: DietsHealthScience!Nutrition

We all know that diet soda is a great alternative to normal soda, and it can even help you lose weight.

We also know that diet soda can derail your diet and lead to obesity among other problems.

So basically, we're all super confused and don't know how to feel about diet soda.

Thankfully someone did a study. Two groups of men and women ate the same diet and did the same exercise regimen.

The only difference? One group drank water, the other drank diet soda. After 12 weeks, the people drinking water lost an average of about 9 pounds. The diet soda drinkers? They were down about 13 pounds!

The study's co-author, Dr. Jim Hill, said:

"It makes sense that it would have been harder for the water group to adhere to the overall diet than the (artificially-sweetened beverage) group."

He's saying that because one group wasn't allowed to indulge their sweet tooth, they were more likely to cheat on the diet.

So what does this all mean??

Diet soda isn't the worst thing, but the real lesson here is moderation and not letting yourself get too hungry.

Happy eating!

    Hmmm…let me guess, Pepsico or Coca Cola paid for these "scientists" to carry out the study. Diet soda/aspartame causes cancer. Google it.

    Mostly drink ice water (can't afford soda) but I do pig out on Coke in Mexico because it has real sugar in it, not the crummy stuff they use in the US.

    Re: teeter totter – search 'where to find mexican coke' (coca cola, guys,)
    and a map comes up. You can get it in Cali, elsewhere in U.S. and in Canada at select stores.
    It's better stuff, isn't it.

    BULLSHIT! Aspartame is SO bad for you! I agree with Emily's comment … besides Cancer, there are many, many other health risks associated with drinking diet sodas. You're better off drinking the real sugar in an original, non-diet soda … obviously in moderation. My boyfriend had a diet coke addiction … when he finally quit drinking that garbage, I saw a 360 turn around in his mood and behaviors. It was crazy! This report is complete garbage.

    Soda - diet or otherwise - is not a healthy choice. Read

    Nah, use it to clean your toilet or get tar off your car. Soda is bad for humans - period.
