So you belive that drinking diet pop is the way to go. Your cuttin calories right? So the fat should fairly well melt off right ? Hmmm….More evidence that diet soda contributes to weight gain, not weight loss
A new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society found that people who drank diet soda gained almost triple the abdominal fat over nine years as those who didn’t drink diet soda. The study analyzed data from 749 people ages 65 and older who were asked, every couple of years, how many cans of soda they drank a day, and how many of those sodas were diet or regular.Those answers ended up being extremely predictive of abdominal-fat gain, even after the researchers adjusted for factors like diabetes, smoking and levels of physical activity. People who didn’t drink diet soda gained about 0.8 in. around their waists over the study period, but people who drank diet soda daily gained 3.2 in. Those who fell in the middle — occasional drinkers of diet soda — gained about 1.8 in.
By the way…Caution if as I belived that Club Soda was the answer. Its very high on sodium so not much of a win here either.
No wonder some folks drink beer 24/7 ; )
