Bravo's Top Chef: Texas has recruited one of cooking's biggest stars!

Emeril Lagasse is joining the reality competition as a judge alongside Hugh Acheson, Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons.

Fans of the show should be in for a treat as producers have promised "many surprising twists and turns and never-before-seen challenges and events."

Rumor has it that Pee-Wee Herman was seen around town in San Antonio, one of the three Texas cities the show is being shot in, with the judges.

No specific premiere date, but the latest season of the Bravo show will begin sometime this fall.

Diet Soda May Be A Diabetes Risk AND Linked To Weight Gain

Filed under: Fitness

Diet soda

Bad news for diet soda lovers.

A study presented at an American Diabetes Association meeting this week showed that diet soda actually RAISED blood sugar in mice prone to diabetes AND led to a larger waistline in humans.

Researchers running the San Antonio Longitudinal Study of Aging collected height, weight, waist circumference and diet soda intake data from 474 elderly people, then followed up with them an average of 9.5 years later.

Those who drank ONE diet soda a day had developed waist circumferences 70% greater than those who did not drink diet soda. People drinking at least TWO diet sodas a day blew up 500% more than those not drinking diet soda.

In a second study, researchers fed aspartame — an artificial sweetener found in diet soda — to diabetes prone mice for three months and found the animals had higher blood glucose levels than those not fed the sweetener.

Yuck!

Although we're not experts, we're leaning toward agreeing with researcher Helen P. Hazuda, Ph.D., who came to the conclusion:

"Data from this and other prospective studies suggest that the promotion of diet sodas and artificial sweeteners as healthy alternatives may be ill-advised. They may be free of calories but not of consequences."

If you're looking to cut calories, why not just cut soda entirely from your diet and replace it with another 0 calorie option — water!
