Reminder: Diet Soda is a Lie

Diet Soda Is A LieIf you’ve been reading our blog for a while, you know our feelings about diet soda (and how much we caution people against it). Even though it claims to contain fewer calories and be “better” for you, the fact is the aspartame and other chemical sweeteners used in diet sodas may be worse for you than normal soda.

Here’s what an article from Slashfood has to say about it:

Researchers have now determined that drinking one soda a day, whether it’s diet or regular, is associated with a much higher rates of heart disease and diabetes. . . .

[That] just confirms what we’ve all known for years. You can not redeem a quarter pounder with cheese and large fries with the addition of a diet soda.

So what’s the alternative? Quit drinking soda and use a natural sweetener if you need flavor in your drinks instead.

    Do not use/want sugar in coffee or tea, but do enjoy approximately one diet soda per week…Is that too much?

      It depends on whether or not you’re on the HCG Diet. If you’re on the diet, even a single diet soda can cause you to stall. If you’re not following the HCG protocol, you’re probably okay having a single soda per week. However, it’s best for your health to cut out soda entirely!
