Myth Buster Monday

Posted: Updated:

Myth:  Diet soda helps with weight loss.

False.

Many of us know this is a myth but the reason for it can sometimes get a little fuzzy.  The Cleveland Clinic highlights an article from The Journal Diabetes that found the reason soda with artificial sweetener leads to weight gain isn't compeltely clear.  Some studies show that the artificial sweetener creates a sugar craving, therefore the more we drink the more sugar we crave.

Link to Cleveland Clinic and advice for making water more appealing.
