Study: Diet soda may do more harm than good

Artificial sweeteners in diet soda fulfill a person’s craving for a sweet taste, without the calories. But that's the problem, according to researchers. Think of it like crying wolf.

The fake sugar in diet sodas teases your body by pretending to give it real food. But when your body doesn't get the things it expects to get, it becomes confused on how to respond. While the studies they reviewed only looked at diet soft drinks, the researchers suggest that this could apply to other products that contain artificial sweeteners as well.

"You've messed up the whole system, so when you consume real sugar, your body doesn't know if it should try to process it because it's been tricked by the fake sugar so many times," says Swithers.

On a physiological level, this means when diet soda drinkers consume real sugar, the body doesn’t release the hormone that regulates blood sugar and blood pressure.

I don't want him to think that I eat at any opportunity I get. I want him to think of me as refined and sophisticated. I figure popcorn is not the most refined nor sophisticated! I do love cinema popcorn though! The smell brings great memories of when I was a teenager and the great films Millie, Jamie ...

I'd work out then drive to McDonald's for a diet Coke and a few Big Macs but I never gained weight because this was all I ate. Men hold excess fat around the stomach. Women hold more fat around the hips and buttocks presumably to help with child bearing. Incidentally, the term cellulite is a term some marketer created. It's just normal fat, the cottage cheese clumps of fat around the thighs and butt which every woman hates. The reason that women have it and men don't is that men ...
