DietSoda is a Don’t
Los Angeles, CA – 1/20/2014—
When curtailing adiet, there are many things we cut out to become healthier. But one indulgence many keep is a diet sodahabit. And while it will save a personfrom consuming the 140 some calories included with regular soda, there areother health reasons this dietary staple should be cut out or at least reducedfor overall health.
Diet soda relievesitself of calories by using artificial sweeteners in place of real sugar. While this seems logical, artificialsweeteners are more intense in flavor that regular sugar and overtime ourbodies become dulled to naturally sweet tastes and we begin to crave the falsesugars our bodies have become accustomed too. This wouldn’t be all bad save for the fact that artificial sweetenerscan trigger insulin increases which cause the body to store fat leading toweight gain.
In fact, this increasein insulin has been linked to an increased risk of developing type 2diabetes. The confusion in sugars canlead to development of metabolic syndrome, and elevate the risk of heartdisease, stroke, and other debilitating conditions. Not only this, consumption of diet soda canbe linked to some weight gain due to the increased production of insulin thatis required to combat the flux of artificial sugars in the body.
In addition to theabove, diet soda has no nutritional value, especially when compared with wateror even juices. When trying to improve adiet for health reasons, it’s better to pack in as many nutrient dense foodsand beverages as possible rather than reaching for something that is empty ofbenefit. IN addition to the debilitatingconditions listed above, excessive consumption of soda can break down toothenamel and lead to dental conditions and erosion.
While diet soda canhelp satisfy a craving for something sweet and bubbly, it is unwise to keep itin as a staple part of any diet due to the risks to overall health anddiet.
