We here at Lose Weight On Your Terms have been blowing the horn on drinking soda for some time. We have provided documented evidence that we should all give up soda and start drinking something safer like seltzer. Well here’s some more evidence to help ween you off diet soda as well:
According to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center who conducted a study involving 475 adults over a ten year period found that those who drank diet soda experienced an increase in the circumference of their waist sizes of 70 percent as opposed to those who did not drink soda at all. Additionally those who had more than two sodas a day experienced a 500 percent increase in waist circumference. In another study by the same group of researchers, which was conducted on mice, found that it was the artificial sweetener aspartame that was responsible for the weight gain. The aspartame raised blood glucose levels to excess in the liver causing it to be converted to fat. I don’t know about you but I think I’ll have a nice glass of seltzer. Cheers!
