Despite soda companies labeling some of their products as “diet”, they’re really not.
A University of Texas Health Science Center study found that the more “diet” soda you consume, the greater the risk of becoming obese climbs. In fact, 2 or more cans a day can increased waistlines by 500%. This is due to artificial sweeteners, which disrupt the body’s natural ability to regulate your calorie intake based on the sweetness of foods.
So, when they say “Tastes just like Coke!” They mean, “it confuses your body!”
Diet things aren’t supposed to taste good, because they’re not supposed to make your crave more. They’re supposed to do quite the opposite actually.
