Why I'll NEVER Drink Diet Soda

Why I'll NEVER Drink Diet Soda

I want to share with you one of the biggest health mistakes that I see so many people make.

In this article I will prove to you why it's such a big mistake and why it's so crucial that you STOP drinking diet soda (that includes zero calorie soda) right now. Read on to see the incredible studies and their results...

I want to start by saying that if you do drink diet soda, you are not alone, and (until now) you may not have known how bad it is for you. My hope is that this email helps shift a little something in at least a few people that will drastically change their health (and their life).

I think many people drink diet or zero calorie soda because they think that weight loss is all about "calories in vs. calories out".

I actually recently watched a friend send back a meal because it had olive oil on it (one of the healthiest things you can put in your body) because he said he "didn't want the extra calories".

That same friend proceeded to drink two zero calorie sodas that day.

Knowing what I know about health, this really bothered me.

Look at the cattle industry. Big companies in this industry have learned that if they give antibiotics to their cattle, the cattle will often gain weight by an extra 30% WITH NO EXTRA CALORIES.

I think this proves that there are some other factors at play here that you may want to take into consideration. Don't think that something is okay just because it has zero or low calories. Here is some more proof...

In 2011 the American Diabetes Association conducted a study of the effects of diet soda on the body. The University of Texas Health Science Center monitored 474 people over the course of 10 years. They monitored the waistlines of the participants to show if drinking diet soda helped people to lose weight. The results were:

No Diet Soda: Average 0.8 inches gained around the waist

Occasional Diet Soda: Average 1.83 inches gained around the waist

Daily Diet Soda: Average 3.2 inches gained around the waist!

There was a 70% increase in waist sizes for diet soda drinker’s vs. non drinkers... And drinking 2 or more diet sodas per day increased the waist size by 500%!!!

Looking at how the body reacts to artificial sugar we can see why this change in weight is happening.

When you consume Aspartame and similar fake sugar your body reacts like it’s real sugar causing insulin levels to rise which drops your blood sugar causing you to feel more hungry. Also when you drink so much fake sugar it creates the same craving for real sugar which leads to a larger temptation when sweet foods are available.

One of the worst issues with artificial sweeteners is how it affects the gut health. We know how important probiotic and prebiotic bacteria is for overall gut health.

The U.S. News and World Report showed when exposed to even 1 milligram per milliliter of artificial sweetener, the bacteria found in the digestive system became TOXIC!

Earlier, a 2010 study presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference concluded this:

"This study suggests that diet soda is not an optimal substitute for sugar-sweetened beverages, and may be associated with a greater risk of stroke, myocardial infarction, or vascular death than regular soda."

With all these issues being known about diet soda from weight gain to toxic gut health and higher chances of stroke. It's time to reconsider the image that diet soda has branded as the "healthy alternative" to sugar sodas.

My personal opinion is that if you are serious about your health you will stop drinking both soda and diet soda entirely.

You wouldn't put garbage in the fuel tank of your car and expect it to operate properly would you?

So let's keep the garbage out of our bodies. We have family members that want to spend many more healthy years with us.

You owe it to yourself and your family. Make this simple change, you will be happy you did.

To your health,
