Soda, Good Or Bad? We all know by now diet soda is one of the worst
things that you could drink while trying to get in shape, with all those chemicals, high fructose corn syrup,
and a number of health problems that could be a direct result of this carbonated cocktail that is worshipped
by those that don't care about their health or body. I know because your reading this, that you do in fact,
care about you body and health, so back to the question, is diet drinks good for you?
Some people really believe that drinking
diet beverages is a good thing while trying to lose abdominal fat. In fact, I've talked to a lot of people that are
so proud to say they are on a great diet eating all the right foods and they only drink diet
soda. I will tell you right now, there is NOTHING at all healthy about
drinking diet beverages. In fact, I have seen diet soda studies that have dedicated diet soda drinkers and got even

looked at the people only drinking diet beverages, there risk to stay overweight was even higher.""There was
a 42 percent increase in risk of being overweight, per can of diet soda they drankper day."

bad guy. Well, there are many factors that you need to realize first.

response in your body and the fat storing hormone increases production. When this happens, the fat storing hormone
tells your body its hungry for more sweets and bad carbohydrates in a short time period after consuming the diet
beverage. Another reason why people get fatter while drinking diet drinks is

intake. There is a great article about this in the TheTruth About Six Pack Abs
eBook. This is to inform you that you really need to just stop drinking
diet soda or any other diet drink with artificial sweeteners. There is really no other way around
