Diet Soda? Think Twice. By Beth Battaglino, RN-C, CEO of HealthyWomen, Women’s Health Expert. Created: 04/01/2015.

Last Updated: 04/22/2015. Share on: Information on diet soda and weight loss fluctuates as often as the scale: Drinking it can help you lose more weight than drinking plain water, says one study. And then other studies say just the. Think twice about that diet soda. By Gwen Mergian on November 3, 2009 at 8:59 PM.

Women who drank two or more diet sodas a day had a 30% drop in a measure or kidney function. Less than two. Answer From Katherine Zeratsky, R.D., L.D. Drinking a reasonable amount of diet soda a day, such as a can or two, isn’t likely to hurt you. The artificial sweeteners and other chemicals currently used in diet soda are safe for most people, and there’s no credible evidence that these ingredients cause cancer.

Like regular soda, diet soda is associated with dental erosion due to its acidic pH level. This comes from the addition of acids, such as malic, citric, or phosphoric acid, for flavor ( 5, 55. Does guzzling diet soda lead to an early demise? There was a collective gasp among Coke Zero and Diet Pepsi drinkers this week after media reports highlighted a.

In other words, you don’t think twice about pairing a cheeseburger with your Diet Coke because, after all, you’re sipping zero calories. “In my experience, clients who drink diet soft drinks almost always aren’t satisfied with the drink alone — they want a sweet or salty food to go along with it,” adds Coates. Aspartame is the go-to sweetener in most diet sodas, so regular drinkers might think twice about what they’re guzzling. After a year, the diet soda group had dropped a little bit of weight, compared with those who drank regular sodas. By the 2-year mark, however, the two groups were about the same.

But no-several studies have proved conclusively that drinking diet soda is associated with weight gain. In one study, participants who started out normal weight and drank three diet sodas a day. You kicked your regular soda habit, and now you’re sitting on cloud nine.

But if that cloud is made of diet soda — a replacement for the real thing — you may have just created new problems.

But there was one shocker: the study discovered that drinking daily diet sodas full of artificial sweeteners was associated with 34 percent increased risk for metabolic syndrome, at least compared to those who didn’t drink it.6

Many people choose diet sodas because they are promoted as a diet alternative having no calories, but these “lite” sodas actually cause more weight gain than normal “heavy” sodas because of the chemicals in the artificial sweeteners.

Most mainstream doctors recommend that their overweight patients consume diet soda, Sweet-NLow, etc. for weight loss, but in actual fact their advice causes the patients to crave calories and binge on unhealthy carbohydrates.

However, when we repeatedly drink diet soda, this understanding breaks down—your appetite says, “Okay, here’s the sweetness, but there arent many calories—that must mean I have to eat a lot of sweet things to get my needed calories.”

Diet Soda: Diet soda interacts with alcohol too, so people who drink mixed drinks made with diet soda will become intoxicated more quickly and achieve higher BACS than people drinking identical drinks made with regular soda.

  • I also dislike drinking my calories unless it’s like a meal-replacer like a really filling, fibrous and nutritious smoothie. Therefor i have developed an addiction to zero calorie drinks cola zero tops the list! I’ve been struggling to quit drinking it for over half a year I’m sure these tips will help a lot! Thank you!!

  • I use to be hooked on diet coke. I think it was the caffeine in it since I don’t drink coffee whenever I would go a day without soda I would get a headache. After drinking soda almost every day of my 20s I quit cold turkey about a year ago. I found that drinking ice cold water was just as refreshing and now I pretty much only drink water.

  • Perrier IS PERFECT. I became addicted to it after being off of soda for two years. The smaller cans are great too, because I usually find I couldn’t drink more than one serving. Great suggestions

  • Hey Dani, love this video thanks for the tips! I wanted to ask what your thoughts are for alternative cream in my coffee? I like half and half but I dont know on the spectrum of options where that weighs in as far as what’s healthier and tasty. Thanks!

  • Uh oh… it grows hair on your chin, eyebrows, and ears,….. while all the other head hair falls out. Not sure of other areas on the body TMI!!!!!

  • I was surprised to find out about the plastic lining inside of aluminum cans! As far as drinking sofa when I do it is always diet.

  • So you went from artificial sweeteners, to stevia, then back to sugar? Juice has as much sugar, if not more, than soda… this seems like a huge step backwards.

  • Hey, love your videos. I have been drinking squash since I was a year old and never drink water on its own. I am really struggling quit the squash and just drinking water. Any ideas and tips?

  • My hubby was a huge diet coke addict and I was a regular coke addict, this was 10 years ago. Glad to say we no longer drink soda!!!

  • I’m sooooo happy to say I am not much of a soda drinker…I have a soda every blue moon. I like what you said Dani boutique not drinking calories and that’s one of the reasons I stay away for the most part from sodas. Lately to get the fizzle I love I’ve been drinking sparkling water with lemon flavor or mandarin orange flavor.

  • I think what you are doing is awesome.
    I am not addicted myself but I used to drink some and my mom couldn’t keep away from it. She stopped completely and even though her health is still not 100% she feels a lot better and her digestion improved tremendously.
    please keep doing this awesome job!

  • Love all the tips! This is such a great topic! I personally quit soda myself a while ago, and I recommend kombucha to a lot of people! Thanks Dani!

  • I cut down on the diet mountain dew. I used to drink 2 liters a day. I still have it here and there. Drinking more filtered water. Braun.

  • I have gone back and forth with the diet soda debate. Luckily I try to stick with straight up water anyway….but still do like my diet soda on occasion!

    I came over here from Grey Wolf Fitness to subscribe and share some love for a fellow small youtuber.

  • Some years ago I dated a dietitian who gave me a lot of hell for drinking diet Cokes because of the aspartame. Long story / short one day she called me up and told me to drink all the diet Cokes I wanted. When I enquired as to her change of heart she said that she read the report that claimed aspartame cause cancer. Evidently they were dosing the Lab mice with the equivalent of 700 diet Cokes per day to get them to get cancer

  • Do you drink a lot of diet coke? Are you considering quitting? If you enjoyed this video, please give it a like and share it with your friends! ��

  • Awesome video Dani!  I definitely wish I had followed these tips. I used to be a soda addict as well (20+ sodas a week), but with regular soda. Luckily I quit cold turkey 5 years ago, and haven’t had a soda since. I lost about 30 pounds! Unfortunately I suffered headaches and an irritable mood for months, definitely not a good way to quit soda lol. Now I drink the Kroger brand of lemon and lime flavored sparkling water, it’s pretty good.

  • Thanks for sharing these great tips! I was a big soda drinker & lover of all sweets for many years. I wish I had tried your gradual weaning off method a year ago. I was recently diagnosed with diabetes so I had to quit all sugars & sweetened drinks..cold turkey. Don’t wait for your bad cravings to affect your health. Try to cut back on your sugar intake. It was easy after the first few days. I don’t crave sugar anymore. Also, I love flavoring my water with Meyer lemon slices. It’s a little sweeter than regular lemons.
    Good luck everyone!

  • WATCH ��: Why You Should Never Drink Soda & 5 Foods You Should Not Eat

  • That is exactly what I did and now I drink seltzer. Baby steps is key and gradually cutting back the fruit juice until it was just seltzer water. The kroger flavored brands are all pretty good.:)

  • Nope pop in general is terrible, diet even worse because it tricks the mind into thinking you are experiencing sugar for the body to process, when the sugar never arrives it forces the brain to want to search for sugar even more. I get headaches from anything with aspartame so no thanks to that garbage.

  • I used to drink a lot of diet pop and for my resolution for New Years 2015 I decided to give up all carbonated drinks. I have been pop-free for over a year and it has made a whopping difference in my lifestyle. Probably the hardest thing about giving it up was just when I went out with my friends (which is not very often). A lot of mixed drinks at the bar use pop or soda waters in them so now I’m more restricted, but I wouldn’t say that’s necessarily a bad thing in the end 😉 If you’re thinking about giving it up, I’d definitely recommend it. At first I missed my can of diet coke after work but now I haven’t thought about it for months.

  • I haven’t had a carbonated drink in 10 years.
    I have been known to down some Flor de Cana in coconut water or in Hibiscus tea tho 😉

  • I quit soda when I was like 12….. it was super easy. I have the mental fortitude of an ancient wise tree. Yep. I occasionally drink some mineral water, maybe once every couple of months.

  • I would rather drink water then diat tasty nasty all of it. Like any thing else addictive tasty like crapp tell your body starts to crave it.

  • I’m just not a fan of that aftertaste they seem to all have. I don’t drink them too many times and stick to water….I do worry about the chemicals too, just like the Walden Farms products. Another quality video Luke!! Very in depth dude!!!

  • It’s been almost a year since I completely gave up all soda. I replaced it with sparkling water/seltzer water. I need the bubbles! I feel so much better. Not just with my digestive system but my muscles and joints also feel better.

  • I find that I need a little caffeine pick me up in the afternoons that I work (nurse; those 12 hour shifts). I also find myself reaching for the diet soda with certain foods. I don’t think I consume it excessively, therefore I don’t stress about quitting all together. I do love sparkling water and unsweetened ice tea. I do not like to drink my calories, so I am hesitant to try anything that contains sugar. On a side note, I am curious as to what you have plugged in. Is it an essential oil diffuser?

  • I do occasionally have a Cola when at the cinema or if I order a burger, but it’s maybe once every two to three weeks. There is however a soda I really like that can be found occasionally here in Ireland that has about 160 calories per bottle. The sugar content is not as high as Cola, but it definitely is something I only should treat myself with every couple of days or so. My problem is chocolate more so than sodas. I’m trying to focus on a high quality chocolate that isn’t as addictive. One or two pieces usually satiates the craving, whilst I could quite easily eat 1000 calories worth of dairy milk chocolate or some other mass produced milk chocolate in one sitting.

  • I drink diet soda and when I feel I’m going overboard I back down to flavored seltzer water. I really want soda to be a treat-or be something I have go get. Thank you for this variety!

  • hi my name is Lacey and I’m a diet soda drinker and I want to quit drinking diet sodas and I don’t know how to do it without the repercussions of it without getting addicted to it again

  • I used to be a sprite zero addict. No idea how I quit haha, I just don’t drink it anymore. Great video though, I might show this to my mother, who loves coca cola zero.:)

  • Thanks for this video Dani! I personally never liked soda.I’ve had it occasionally in gatherings but that was pretty much it and i gave it up completely couple of year ago, my mum on the other hand is addicted to diet coke she drinks a can every day because she says it helps her with her digestion issues,could that be true?Also she refuses to substitute it with anything else or give it up. Any tips?

  • I’ve never been a fan of soda but my girlfriend is a Dr pepper addict. she can’t do without all the sugar and the caffeine. how to overcome this???

  • i did the same thing but it took me one week to think about and stopped juices and soda and now my favorite drink is just water and lime just like you Dani, i loved soda but once i took this decision this love for soda was gone, i was reading an article about stevia and i discovered that it was not the natural plant that we are drinking as sweetener but it was an othe stevia with other ingrédients, stevia is green and not white…. then i took the decision to forget about it, thanks to god in my country all our veggies and fruits are organic and cheap so we don’t have to worry about this….Dani thanks for the tips.

  • I had to say bye bye to diet soda after they began to give me migraines. I drink good spring water from a local spring, with the juice of an orange and a lemon, on ice. 2 quarts to the juice referenced previously. Yum!

  • I also used to be addicted to diet soda. I got a water bottle dispenser and had high quality water delivered to my house. I figured it was probably cheaper than all the soda I was drinking and it was good tasting. That worked for me.

  • Hey Dani, I also used to be a diet soda addict. I’d quit about 10 years ago when articles started to come out about the artificial sweeteners that are/were used in diet sodas, and how bad it is for our health. I quit cold turkey and never looked back. I drink still water with lemon juice, or I love plain fruit/herbal teas. I also started to make and drink Kombucha in the past year with my lunch which I enjoy very much.
