Gaining weight with diet soda

Do diet beverages help you lose weight? The answer is a big-fat-NO! Part of the problem is that overweight and obese adults who drink diet beverages also consume more calories from food than obese or overweight adults who drink regular soda or other sugary beverages. Now isn’t that interesting!  In the past few decades, diet soda drinking has blossomed to 20% of soda drinkers today. The artificial sweeteners in high doses in diet soda are associated with a greater activation of reward centers in the brain to skew the drinker’s perception of the reward they experience from sweet tastes – resulting in increased food intake overall. Artificial sweeteners are designer drugs inserted by mad food scientists.
