What’s up guys Thomas here today to tell you the truth about how these so called “diet” sodas are really effecting your weight loss efforts…
And the truth is, they’re moving you backwards instead of forwards when it comes to improving the shape of your body.
Now these drinks are calorie free, which technically should help people lose weight and prevent sugar-related diseases…
1:10 – However, the evidence for these beverages having any use is completely nonexistent. Which brings me to my first terrible aftermath from drinking diet sodas, side effect #4: Metabolic syndrome.
1:29 – There is a lot of evidence supporting the fact that regularly drinking diet sodas can actually cause what researchers call “Metabolic syndrome”… Which is a series of risk factors that can lead to diabetes, stroke and in extreme cases, heart attacks.
1:50 – Now this condition is defined as having or experiencing at least 3 of the following symptoms – excessive belly fat or clinical obesity, high blood pressure, high fasting glucose (those with sugar-packed diets), high triglycerides and low amounts of your body’s good cholesterol.
Drinking “calorie free” beverages instead of sugary ones does not appear to be helpful against the metabolic syndrome.
2:03 – In fact, looking at the research, sugar is really not the only culprit that is affecting your health like the mainstream media is making it appear… And just because diet sodas are “sugar free”, it doesn’t mean that they are healthy…
2:21 – In a study published in the journal Circulation in 2008, which followed 9,514 people for 9 years, drinking artificially sweetened beverages was associated with a 34% greater risk of developing the metabolic syndrome.
2:50 – Now onto side effect #3: There is an association between diet soda and depression.
3:30 – Nutrition and dietary experts are relating these findings to once again, the myriad of chemicals and synthetic ingredients found within diet drinks.
4:00 – Side effect #2: Drinking diet soda increases your risk for diabetes.
4:50 – Now, as everyone knows, the past decade of health surveys have revealed massive increases in populations develops diabetes… This disease is highly associated with obesity and sugar consumption, so most believe that replacing sugary beverages with calorie-free drinks would help…
5:17 – But according to the reports – it’s quite the opposite.
A study of 6,814 individuals aged 45-85 years, daily consumption of diet soda was associated with a 67% increased risk of type II diabetes. In another French study, women were studied for 14 years and it was found that women who consumed the most diet drinks had a 121% greater risk of developing type II diabetes.
5:46 – I hate to be the barer of bad news – especially because the main reason people switch to diet drinks is to cut back on calories in order to lose weight… However, the numbers don’t lie people.
6:15 – And now, the final side effect. Drinking diet soda can actually make you fat.
6:38 – There are even many short-term trials that show that artificial sweeteners can increase appetite and food intake in the short-term compared to sugar.
6:50 – So the take away here guys is to not to choose between diet and regular soda – it’s to forego both. Instead, try drinking unsweetened beverages like coffee, tea, mineral water or 100 percent fruit juice… Or better yet, stick to plain, old water!
Thank you guys for watching!
Fastest way to get a ripped body:
And by the way guys… I didn’t used to have the muscular body that I do now, and I struggled to get ripped six pack abs for years. In fact, I actually had belly fat that used to make me feel so shy that I wouldn’t even take my shirt off in public. I would spend hours in the gym and see little to no results. I was extremely discouraged until one day I realized that I was working out wrong. It was then that I discovered the ‘trick’ to lose my stubborn belly fat and get toned six pack abs…fast.
