Diet cola Drink more Gain more
Every where around us we see people drinking the diet cola. Double cheeseburger with King size fries and diet soda... I don't know the deal, but many a times I have been forwned upon for drinking regular cola. But a recent study has found the ill effects of the diet drink on weight.
The findings come from eight years of data collected by Sharon P. Fowler, MPH, and colleagues at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. Fowler reported the data at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association in San Diego.
If you offer your body something that tastes like a lot of calories, but it isn't there, your body is alerted to the possibility that there is something there and it will search for the calories promised but not delivered. This can be true and a major reason why diet soda contributes to weight gain. It surprised me a lot. I always knew that it does not help in weight loss but the fact that it could actually make you gain weight is important.
I am a cola fan. I love cola, I have had it for breakfast. Not that I don't like OJ..... But somehow I always have cola in the fridge but run out of the Tropicana.
When the temperature Aspartame exceeds 86 degrees F, the wood alcohol in it converts to Formaldehyde and then to formic acid, which in turn causes metabolic acidosis. The methanol toxicity mimics among other conditions multiple sclerosis. People are being wrongly diagonsed with the disease.
Aspartame is the culprit and it is not any good for the diabetic either. Basically try to avoid any thing sugar free and particularly if it has Aspartame as one of the ingredients.
