Does diet soda have negative affects on weight loss?

Ok, I really like drinking diet soda especially when I am trying to shed a few pounds because it takes some of the edge off of being hungry. I usually have between 1 and 2 cans a day. I know that soda does not have any calories, but I still feel like a may be sabatoging my weight loss.

I have read that the artifical sweetners in diet sodas tricks the brain into thinking it is still hungry

I agree with 3:37. If you could get them completely out of your diet I think you'd see a difference in a few weeks. I was the same way and once I got them out I really started to see a difference and now I won't touch one! Try getting 2-3 snacks in your day so you beat that hungry feeling. Good Luck!

I have a Diet Coke just about every day (just one, though) and have reached my goal size -- and am still losing -- and with the support of my PeerTrainer buddies it has been a pretty quick and painless process, even. So I don't have the feeling that a moderate amount of diet soda has held me back at all.

Also, some folks get bloated from the carbonation and/or sodium which is also rather counterproductive when you're looking for results.

Personally I find that I crave salty and somewhat greasy foods to go with my soda (also adding to the H2O retention), so I have 1 in the morning as my wake up and try to stay away from it the rest of the day. I used to drink 6 per day so cutting back to 1 was a huge deal and while I'm not ready to give it up for good, I do find that it was a good step to take. As I grow accustomed to other liquids and find replacements that I like I expect I will eventually give up that one too.

Diet Soda has sodium... however it has about aas much sodium as a pretzel. If you want to stay away from artificial sweetners or dark liquids... or carbination, then it makes sense. But if its something you enjoy, use in moderation and see as a reward or even something you just refuse to budge on then there is no sense in cutting it out for sodium reasons. Although it does have other ingredients, soda (just like other beverages) is mainly water. It's the amounts of the other ingredients that can slow down your diet so just be sensible... just like you would with sodium in your diet. Not bad for you, but use it sparingly

Another thing: Sodas (sugar or not) have an adverse effect on the body's ability to use and retain calcium. So it affects your bone density.

I used to drink lots of diet soda and now I don't really like them any more. I have learned to love water. I think most nutrition experts do not like diet soda for a lot of reasons, but I think if you must a can or two a day isn't too bad. Check out the sodium content, I think this varies from brand to brand. If it's caffiene you need try iced tea, make it yourself and add a little lemon; you can use green or black tea and experiment with different flavors. Tea has lots of antioxidents.

Just got this newsletter today

I'm copying this information from a newsletter i get from beachbody.com

Here's the original part of an article i received last week:
(http://www.beachbody.com/jump.jsp?itemID=538&itemType=NEWSLETTER_ISSUES)

Diet sodas and juices

In an attempt to become thought of as healthier, soda companies have diversified into non-carbonated beverages and diet sodas. While these are an improvement in some ways, they are hardly a solution to the problem.

First off, most juices and other caloric non-soda alternatives are mainly just sugar and water without the carbonation. A quick label comparison between a commercial orange juice and a Mountain Dew would show a similar "bottom line" with regards to calories and sugar. The only improvement would be the lack of the non-caloric offenders.

But that's no small matter, as the true effects of these ingredients have not been thoroughly studied. Despite their no-calorie status, diet sodas have been linked to assorted illnesses. There is no good science on this yet but my own anecdotal evidence is, so far, 100% accurate. I've yet to have a client not lose weight by kicking diet soda. Granted, all of my clients drank an excessive amount, but regardless, there is little doubt that the pH balance of diet sodas hinders the body's ability to absorb nutrients. One client, a female athlete, lost 15 pounds by making no other dietary change but eliminating diet soda. Fifteen pounds and zero calories—more weird science. The bottom line to all this is that, for best results, your body would be happier if you cut most of the calories out of your liquids and cut out soft drinks—caloric or not—altogether.


Some people wrote him letters about it and and he wrote some of them out with responses:

I really enjoyed reading the newsletter and my ears particularly perked up when I read about diet soda actually preventing weight loss. I know you've partially addressed your observations that it caused this in a number of your clients. I had never been aware of this. I know it's not the greatest thing in the world for you, but I had no idea that it could hinder weight loss. And so, my question is this—WHY? Or I guess a better question would be HOW? How is it possible that something that has zero calories in it can prevent weight loss? Please note, I'm not arguing with you, but for someone who is absolutely addicted to diet soda—actually only Diet Coke sweetened with Splenda—I would find it much easier to kick the habit if I knew the reason behind it. Would reducing the number of cans of soda help this or must it be eliminated completely? Is this true of all carbonated beverages or just sodas?—H.S.

SE: As I mentioned in the article, there is more to food than calories. Different substances affect the way your body absorbs nutrients. Sodas use a blend of various chemicals that change your body's natural pH balance—all man-made foods do, which is why your diet should be made up of as many whole foods as possible. Small amounts of diet sodas most likely won't do much, but a steady diet is bad news. I'm going to let a few emails answer the rest of your question:

I had all but completely eliminated diet soft drinks from my life a few months ago. Turns out, the aspartame, not the caffeine, was the contributing factor to the worsening of a cardiac arrythmia problem I have. Now that I have read this nugget of information, if I need a little caffeine blast once in a while, I'll have some plain iced tea (or just go stick my head in the freezer, it works pretty well). I have not lost weight from my efforts, though I have just been diagnosed with a hypothyroid disorder. I am sure keeping those chemicals out of my body has improved my well-being regardless, and I know I feel much better—no mood swings, no irritability, anxiety, depressive episodes, etc. I had no idea this stuff was linked to ADD, but I do know I have had much better focus and concentration. This stuff may be worse for you than alcohol in moderation.—Khamanda

Whoa! Get this: When we lived in Texas I hadn't seen my next door neighbor for a few months...saw him outside one day and he had become this tall slim person, when before—Pillsbury Doughboy. "What happened??" I asked. "Lost 80 lbs. when I stopped drinking DIET soda!" What did he drink instead? "Mostly water." "No-o-o-o-oo! Water? Well, whaddya know!"—Laurie H.

I enjoyed the article on sodas a great deal. So much so that I forwarded it to my mother because I have two younger brothers who drink at least one soda each day. I actually gave up soda all together about eight months ago. I had been drinking only diet caffeine-free for a long time but one day I just decided that it was pointless to continue to drink them. I lost about 5 or 10 pounds in that first month, which seemed odd at first because it wasn't like I was consuming any less calories. But I have also felt healthier and have been sick less since I cut the sodas out of my diet. Now I choose water over every other beverage option and am not even tempted to take a sip of soda. Hopefully others can give up this horrible substance because there is no upside to consuming it.—Brandon

I completely agree with this whole article and the suggestions at the end. Even diet soda will increase chances of tooth decay. Because of the acid. I am a dental hygienist and tell my patients this all the time. I really, really agree with schools taking out the soda machines. And there is NO GOOD reason for the schools to sell junk food to kids. And I wish I knew how to help stop the schools from selling the JUNK.—Kathy

What research do you base your article on?—Micheal B.

SE: I used a lot of sources, the main study being the one that showed soda as the number one caloric source in America. However, let's just assume there was no research.

Whether it's number one or number ten, there is little doubt that a high percentage of calories in the American diet come from soda. We don't need a study to tell us this. Let's just run some numbers based on very basic nutritional knowledge using the information on the side of a can of soda. It's almost all sugar, along with various chemicals designed for rapid absorption. We don't need science to tell us we get a rush from drinking soda. You just need to drink one. Basic nutrition shows us that we should not have too much simple sugar in our diet. If you drink soda all day long, there is no way your diet can possibly be balanced. No study is needed to show this either.

We also know that our diets should consist of protein, fat, carbs, and that we need nutrients, such as vitamins. Again, just looking at the side of a can of soda will confirm that it lacks almost any nutrients but simple sugar and mysterious chemicals. Therefore, before we even resort to studies to confirm that the chemicals are bad and hurt our diet in other ways, the simple facts still show that soda should not be a major component in your diet.

more on soda and calcium

I looked up that study, and the really interesting thing is that they found that drinking more than three sodas a day inhibited calcium uptake in women...

...But not in men.

So this apparently not advice that is generalizable to everyone.

I think it is pretty safe to say that getting diet soda out of your diet will make you healthier. Anytime you ingest artificial stuff it forces your system to adjust.

I reached my goal and drink 1-2 diet sodas per day. However, I also drink at least 64 oz of water which keeps me full. I personally don't crave any type of food, not anything I would "binge" on due to diet soda. I guess it just depends on the person: if you think you are going to eat chips with soda then don't drink the soda! If you have control to just drink a soda it's not going to ruin your diet, it didn't mine.
Good luck!

1-2 diet sodas a day is NOT moderation... that's like saying 1-2 cheeseburgers a day is moderation, or 1-2 pieces of cake a day is moderation... junk food of any kind (and let's be honest diet soda doesn't provide any nutritional benefit, therefore it is JUNK) isn't moderated by having two servings a day.

Diet soda isn't of benefit to the body, and I'm one of the many who believe it has a detrimental effect, even if not seen right away. Try instead drinking water or my personal suggestion: yerba mate tea. It can have a bit of an appetite suppressing effect, and arguably is caffeine free, so drink to your hearts content...

Each of us must weigh the relative positive and negative factors associated with drinking diet sodas. The sodium content may be of greater concern to someone with blood pressure issues or who has fluid retention problems. Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to eliminate diet soda from your diet:

1) Are you consuming so much of it that it replaces the water you should be drinking? Be sure to drink an appropriate amount of water each day, and add soda/coffee/tea/juice/whatever on top of that - not instead of it. I live in the desert, and it's way too easy for me to always grab a Diet Coke when I'm thirsty. Unlike some people, I enjoy water as well, so I keep a supply of Dasani (my favorite) at home and in my office. When I find myself reaching for the Diet Coke, I ask myself if it's because I'm thirsty or just in the mood for a pop. If I'm thirsty, I drink water instead. I save the Diet Coke for snack time or for meals that just taste better with pop instead of water.

2) Has the soda become another food-related addiction for you? If so, you may need to consider making it a challenge you'll focus on at some point in your weight-loss journey. It's easy to let go of one food obsession only to grasp another. Successful weight loss requires that we break the cycle of our relationships with food.

3) Be careful about giving up everything you love. Making lifelong changes in how we eat means letting go of some habits we thought we'd never break, but going cold turkey on everything you love is a recipe for disaster.

4) If you hit a plateau and have to examine your eating patterns, it might be time to ask if you're consuming too much soda. If that's the case, you might try cutting way back (or eliminating it altogether) for a week or so and see if that helps get you over the hump.

Personally...I've decided to keep my Diet Coke. Whatever the small amounts of chemicals may be doing is small compared to what the weight will do if I don't get rid of it. But that's just one person's informed decision.

To The OP

Drinking diet soda can sabotage your weightloss a couple of ways.

Artificial sweetners can sometimes trigger cravings for sugary foods and could possibly lead to a binge. I used to drink a diet soda called Diet Rite and I noticed that after drinking it I either craved more of the soda or like someone else said, the foods that are normally eaten with it. JUNK. Once in a while I drink a Diet Pepsi (colas are the worst. it's the colas that leach the calcium) and a diet gingerale. Those cravings come once a month during my period.

Since I miss the bubbly feeling on my tongue I drink flavored seltzer. No sugar or sweetners of any kind just natural flavoring. It's an acquired taste. Canada Dry has the best ones. I have one a day with my lunch when I crave a soda the most.

Another way it can sabotage your weightloss is that you sometimes fool yourself into thinking that you can eat more later. You think, "If the soda has 0 calories then I can have that extra slice of cake or that order of small fries." These little allowances add up and put on pounds.

I think we all know it's not the best thing for you but personally I used to drink a couple of regular sodas every day so now instead I drink one diet soda a day to still get the taste I had gotten used to over the years. I would like to eventually cut down on it further but for now I think it is helping my weight loss. I don't crave junk food when I drink it so that is not a problem for me. It gives me a little satisfaction without the calories.

I don't see any reason to throw out the diet sodas, as they will not hinder your fat loss goals. However, the one thing I would recommend is increasing water consumption - there have been studies lately that regard water as an important aid in fat oxidation.

RE: the bloating goes away!!!

I do have to agree with you....I have tried for over a year to lose the last 15 pounds and I have not been able to....I began drinking 5 cans of diet coke per day (at least) to help me with my cravings for the junk food that I should not have been eating. Anyhow...I ran out of diet coke and I didn't want to spend the $$$$ to buy more and so I just went without....Only on the second day did I really want one...but I hung in there and it has been almost a month since I have had a single diet coke (no soda at all) and I have not had a single craving for the diet soda or junk food...In this process I have lost 9 pounds--finally on my way to reaching my Weight Watcher goal weight....It has actually been very easy...I even told my husband that he could put a plate of cookies or a piece of pie in front of me and I would not even want any...the urge is gone!!! My husband has even backed off the soda and is drinking caffeine-free iced tea...Try it..it works!!!

I think it does. When I used to drink diet coke, I felt hungrier all the time. There must be something in it that increases appetite, though I'm not sure what. I don't understand all the gobbledy gook on the label. Which is why I finally decided not to drink it anymore. I no longer eat or drink anything with unpronounceables on the label. Better if it doesn't have an ingredients label at all. Fresh natural foods are much better. And there's no need for an ingredient label if you're buying a bunch of bananas or a head of lettuce or a bag of whole brown rice.

Soda, Caffeine, and Losing Weight

Caffeine is a stimulant. This can cause one to be in a 'stressed out' state, which can cause the body to produce Cortisol. Cortisol is known to be a hormone involved with weight gain and inability to lose weight.

Diet Sodas have artificial sweeteners. When these chemicals are broken down they toxic byproducts, such as formaldehyde. Toxins such as these tend to find their way into a 'safe' place in the body, such as fat or joints. This fat is known as cellulite. Cellulite is known to be the hardest to lose. Why? The body has purposely made it hard to burn this type of fat so that the toxins do not harm the body by flowing through the blood stream.

Some also say that the sweet taste of diet sodas also have a way of keeping one from feeling satiated.

The best way to lose weight is to avoid sugar, processed foods, and any additive or artificial food that have toxic effects.

The truth is if one can get away from 'needing' that sweet flavor all together. Then they will have a great chance of craving the right foods for them vs. craving something that is simply an addiction.

I wish all who are on the road to a healthy weight much success!

I have had at least 3 cans of diet soda, 5 cups of coffee (WITH sweetner) and 2 gallons of water a day while lossing body fat. I ate a controlled calorie diet, weight trained and did cardio 6 days a week. I brought my body fat all the way
down to 5-6% percent so you tell me if soda and sweetners ever had any effect on my fat loss goals. When your on a very strict, regimented diet and workout routine having that taste of sweetness from diet drinks and sweetners
can be a nice way to make things feel not so strict and help you to stay within you allowed calorie limit. Lossing body fat is all about creating a deficit in the amount of calories you ingest vs the amount you burn, diet soda has zero calories so if your disciplined and follow your planed daily caloric intake and training program you will lose body fat. Drinking diet soda or drinks with artifical sweetners will not interfere with your goals bacause they neither add nor subtract to your daily caloric intake.

When I go out to eat I usually order water to drink, however, there have been times when I have ordered a diet soda. More times than not though I drink water in between my sips of diet soda a lot like I do if and when I drink alcohol. Personally I feel like you need to do what works for you. Some people have lost weight drinking 1 or 2 diet sodas a day. For others it stimulates their craving and that is not good. It's true that it has no nutritional value and aspertane (sp?) is definitely not good for you. But that being said I really can't believe that one every once in a while could be harmful.

Diet Soda

Well I have studied that the diet soda tricks your brain into eating or desiring to eat more. But then I have a question. If you dont fall for the trcik and just drink one a day and not all the bad foods on top of it, is it really that bad for you? I was drinking a Mocha every morning and decided it was too much sugar, so I decided to drink one diet soda every morning instead. I dont grab a bite to eat with it just the soda. Then I walk 3 to 4 miles a day. Plus if diet soda is bad for you. How much walking or exercising does it take to burn off the 1 can of soda?

According to the doctor who wrote this article, aspartame consumption will inhibit the liver's ability to burn fat. Thus, it seems that regardless of the type of fat burning activity anyone would participate in, the body will burn fat far more efficiently without aspartame consumption than with aspartame consumption.

If you are really serious about maintaining your weight or losing weight in the future, you should think about substitutes for diet soda. The best thing that you can drink is water. The body requires water in order to rehydrate and to maintain internal organ functions.

Diet soda fills me up though, which makes me eat fewer calories.

In the information era, people’s life is filled with hustles and bustles. Sometimes we just want a quiet environment to enjoy ourselves. Then you may need this cell phone jammer with the function of phone jamming and masking for acoustic interference against listening devices which can be got from http://www.jammerfromchina.com/.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
