Put Down That Diet Soda!

Contrary to popular belief, people who drink diet sodas are actually more likely to become overweight than people who don't. A recent long-term study has shown that normal-weight subjects who consumed diet sodas were at a 65% greater risk of becoming overweight or obese than the control group of normal-weight subjects.

The outcome of this study has actually created more questions than it has answered. The reasons that diet sodas have this effect are not known. There are a couple of hypotheses for this, one of which is that those who consumed these diet sodas were missing out on healthier drinks.

Another theory is that the subjects which drank diet sodas were more inclined to eat an excess of calories (as they were under the impression that the diet drink was in fact healthier than anything else). This increased caloric intake will, as we all know, cause a gain in weight over time.
