Top 5 Reasons You Should Avoid Diet Drinks!

Here's a question I got recently from the blog on water and hydration: "Is diet soda really bad for you?"

Disease  Hydration  Nutrition  Weight Loss  
Trying to get your opinion on diet pop. Is it really bad for you? I quit drinking regular and know they tell me diet is not good at all either. Love reading all your little bits of wisdom!

So, here's my response:

Diet soda is not good for your health! It is generally better to drink things with sugar than anything with artificial sweeteners!

A study produced in 2005 by University of Texas Health Science Center showed a 57.1% risk of obesity for those who consumed 2 or more servings of diet sodas daily.

In 2009, a study was produced by nurses with 3,256 participants. For those who drank at least 2 servings of diet soda daily, it revealed a 30% drop in kidney function. A study that was presented at the American Stroke Association's International Stroke Conference shed some disturbing light on the dangers of diet soda: The study followed more than 2,500 New Yorkers for nine years or more. It found that people who drank diet soda every day had a 61 percent higher risk of vascular events, including stroke and heart attack, than those who never drink diet beverages. Soda is very damaging to tooth enamel, with the sugar and acid being the most significant ingredients. Even if the sugar is eliminated for diet sodas, the acid content is still extremely high. Carbonated water has also been linked to tooth decay. Diet soda ingredients can rob your bones. Phosphoric Acid removes calcium from bones, it also is used to remove rust!

Soda and other beverages can be very addictive. So sometimes baby steps are what we can handle, and that's much better than doing nothing at all. Start by reducing your consumption by half, then every week to month reduce it by half again. Then, by this summer, you could be completely off of it! Another interesting thing you can research is typing "what's in _____________" on your web search engine. It's surprising how many things are in our foods and beverages that we don't understand. Many carcinogens have been linked to things like diet sodas, but I wanted to stick to researched facts in this blog. So buyer beware the next time you go down the beverage aisle of the grocery store!

Substitute a NuMedica Power Greens or a Total Vegan Protein or a Absolute Protein or a SlimFit Protein drink for the soda and see how much better you look and feel! These nutritious superfood and protein drinks come in many different great-tasting flavors including berry, chocolate, espresso, mocha mint, strawberry-kiwi, and vanilla. They are available in both canister (economy/value) and single serving (convenience/on-the-go) sizes.
