The #1 WORST “healthy” drink (ditch this today)

Do you know the WORST habit that many people think is “healthy”, but don’t realize is hurting their fat loss goals?

Drinking diet soda.

Everyone knows that drinking regular soda is bad for your waistline and your health because it’s packed full of sugar. Diet soda has zero calories and it’s called DIET, after all, so isn’t it a good alternative for those who want to lose weight?

Unfortunately, for those who love to drink it, the answer is NO!

Both regular AND diet soda can DESTROY all that hard work you’re doing to lose those stubborn pounds and get fit.

In addition to the health reasons for avoiding diet soda – it’s loaded with chemicals and artificial sweeteners that can harm your body and your mind. In fact, studies have shown that drinking these calorie-free beverages will actually cause you to eat more.

Here’s why…

Artificial sweeteners can trick the body into believing more calories are on the way, and when those calories don’t come, it slows the metabolism, throwing off the body’s ability to regulate the appetite. Research has found that eating or drinking artificially sweetened products leads to greater weight gain than eating foods sweetened with regular sugar.

One recent study out of John Hopkins University found a significant difference in the number of total calories eaten each day between those that drank regular soda and those that consumed diet soda. Diet soda drinkers consumed an average of nearly 200 more calories per day. A University of Texas Health Science Center study revealed that diet soda can increase weight gain by as much as 41 percent.

Additionally, the carbonation in sodas is believed to actually bind to fat cells which can stop fat loss, making it even more difficult to lose weight. When ingesting carbonated beverages, you’re essentially ingesting air, which bloats the gastrointestinal tract and causes the digestive process to slow, which can also negatively affect weight loss.

To make matters worse, aspartame, the chemical compound used to sweeten most diet sodas has been linked to all sorts of issues, including slowed metabolism, obesity, type 2 diabetes and chronic fatigue. If you’re chronically tired or ill, you probably won’t have the energy you need to work out.

Try this instead

Try adding a squeeze of fresh lemon, lime, or orange to add flavor. Herbal teas are another good alternative. If you want a little caffeine, consider drinking green tea, which has been known to help boost the metabolism, aiding your weight loss efforts rather than damaging them. It’s also packed with antioxidants that can help strengthen your immune system to help battle illness and disease which could not only derail your health, but your efforts to get fit.

By ditching those diet sodas for good and finding a healthy fix that you enjoy, you’ll be that much closer to meeting your goals for a fitter body!
