New report links frequency of diet soda use to waist increases

Nelson Vergel

"Among SALSA participants who reported that they did not consume any diet sodas, waist circumference increased less than 1 inch on average over the total follow-up period, said Sharon P. Fowler, M.P.H., adjunct faculty in the School of Medicine at the Health Science Center. Among participants who reported occasional use - drinking less than one diet soda a day - waist circumference increased almost 2 inches. And among those who consumed diet sodas every day, or more often than once a day, waist circumference increased over 3 inches. "

I always enjoyed drinking diet soda, it was very hard for me to stop especially working in hot weather (summer months) but now it's been well over a year since I had a diet soda.
