Diet soda has been recommended to combat our issues with regular soda and sugar. However, in recent reports, it seems that diet soda might not be the appropriate alternative to sugar as we once thought. Specifically artificial sweeteners, what exactly might be wrong with them? And is it worse than regular soda? Let’s find out!

  1. I dont even drink soda but i dont want to eat candy either too much calories so i,m just going to eat bag of rye chips they are pretty good tasting

  2. I was discussing salivary/gastric/pancreatic juice production with my professor, and he said there is a different way of stimulating it, includes visual, mechanical and others, thats why we salivate when we see food, but interestingly enough, he didn’t mention any hormonal production like insulin.

  3. answer: do not drink either. just stick to water and get yo glucose from fruits or other natural food sources

  4. Thank you so much!!! This was always a huge question for me. Now my life will change forever.

  5. I hope they will be able to make a diet pizza or diet hamburger so i can finally be happy and skinny at the same time

  6. artificial sugar isnt metabolized and goes straight thru your urine. real soda has syrup and very thick amounts of sugar that ruin your cholesterol stop drinking real soda tf is the point

  7. Easier solution: Just don’t drink either…Drink water. I’ve been pop free for 10 years and I don’t miss it at all.

  8. If u wanna quit its all abt mindset
    Do you care that your fat your overweight or that you are literally ruining your body slowly. If you do care then you would easily drop it and occasionally drink soda on a cheat meal maybe once every few weeks or once a month. I personally don’t drink soda at all because I look at it as if I’m stabbing myself in the stomach. Would a sane person ever stab them self, no so I don’t drink coke or pepsi or whatever.

    The stabbing example is just what works for me though. Regardless I hope you learned something from this comment

  9. Coming up on two months without soda. Just made a decision and quit, cold turkey. Hasn’t proven as hard as I thought it would be.

  10. Regular soda is better for me. Diet soda makes me throw up. OK, Diet Dr. Pepper doesn’t make me throw up. But every other diet soda makes me throw up. Especially Diet Pepsi. Diet Pepsi tastes like somebody has mixed half water, half Pepsi.

  11. I’m in good shape been have my whole life and I just bought 24 pack and my mom and dad throwing a fit like really come on I’m good with drinking soda it tease good so who cares

  12. Diet soda gives me an option when I go out to board game nights at a local restaurant with my board game group. It allows me to continue my overall calorie reduction and weight loss. But 95% of what I drink is water. I occasionally treat myself to 1% milk or a gatorade if I have the calories and have been good.

It is a great exclusive product for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs minus the hard work. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend at very last got astronomical success with it.

  14. Thank you for pointing out the facts. I once went to the movies with some of my friends and got a diet root beer. They said how unhealthy that is as they were filling up their cups with regular coke.

  15. Thanks for the Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you ever tried – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (do a google search)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs minus the headache. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my mate at very last got cool results with it.

  16. You know the studies that say that diet soda is linked to obesity? It’s because the diet soda drinkers eat other high calorie foods, which leads to a caloric surplus which leads to weight gain. All of the years of people saying diet soda is worse had no idea what they were talking about.

  17. I hate diet soda but its way better for me. I have 5 brothers 3 which drank a lot of soda. I switched to diet cause I wanted to lose weight. Started running cause I was getting really fat. One of my brothers got diabetes now he has to inject himself cause of soda consumption. My 2 other brothers got really really fat. And i, I lost a couple pounds. I also stopped eating chips. Been drinking diet soda and I haven’t gained weight, and I drink it a lot. Lost A shirt size 2xl to XL and a pants size 40 to 38. I feel happy.

  18. Cheers for the video content! Sorry for butting in, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you tried – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a smashing one off product for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my GF after a lifetime of fighting got cool results with it.

    ~John 3:16 (NIV) "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
    WHAT EXACTLY DOES BELIEVING IN GOD’S SON MEAN?: accept God’s testimony about his Son:
    ~1 John 5:10: "Whoever believes in the Son of God accepts this testimony. Whoever does not believe God has made him out to be a liar, because they have not believed the testimony God has given about his Son."
    ~1 John 5:11-13 "And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. Whoever has the Son has life; whoever does not have the Son of God does not have life.
    I write these things to you who believe in the name of the Son of God so that you may know that you have eternal life."

    DO I HAVE TO DO ANY WORKS? no! you are saved freely! you will go to heaven when you die now! Reference verses:

    ~John 6:26-29 "Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, you are looking for me, not because you saw the signs I performed but because you ate the loaves and had your fill. Do not work for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life, which the Son of Man will give you. For on him God the Father has placed his seal of approval.” Then they asked him, “What must we do to do the works God requires?” Jesus answered, “The work of God is this: to believe in the one he has sent.”"

    ~Ephesians 2:8-9: " For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God— not by works, so that no one can boast."
    ~Romans 4:2-8: " If, in fact, Abraham was justified by works, he had something to boast about—but not before God. What does Scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was credited to him as righteousness.” Now to the one who works, wages are not credited as a gift but as an obligation. However, to the one who does not work but trusts God who justifies the ungodly, their faith is credited as righteousness. David says the same thing when he speaks of the blessedness of the one to whom God credits righteousness apart from works:
    “Blessed are those
    whose transgressions are forgiven,
    whose sins are covered.
    Blessed is the one
    whose sin the Lord will never count against them.”"

    ~Romans 3:20-31: "Therefore no one will be declared righteous in God’s sight by the works of the law; rather, through the law we become conscious of our sin. But now apart from the law the righteousness of God has been made known, to which the Law and the Prophets testify. This righteousness is given through faith in Jesus Christ to all who believe. There is no difference between Jew and Gentile, for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus. God presented Christ as a sacrifice of atonement, through the shedding of his blood—to be received by faith. He did this to demonstrate his righteousness, because in his forbearance he had left the sins committed beforehand unpunished— he did it to demonstrate his righteousness at the present time, so as to be just and the one who justifies those who have faith in Jesus.
    Where, then, is boasting? It is excluded. Because of what law? The law that requires works? No, because of the law that requires faith. For we maintain that a person is justified by faith apart from the works of the law. Or is God the God of Jews only? Is he not the God of Gentiles too? Yes, of Gentiles too, since there is only one God, who will justify the circumcised by faith and the uncircumcised through that same faith. Do we, then, nullify the law by this faith? Not at all! Rather, we uphold the law."

    Am I saved forever now? no need to worry? yep! you are sealed with the Holy Spirit!

    ~Ephesians 1:13-14: "And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God’s possession—to the praise of his glory."

    I still find myself sinning- why?
    ~Romans 7:14-24: "We know that the law is spiritual; but I am unspiritual, sold as a slave to sin. I do not understand what I do. For what I want to do I do not do, but what I hate I do. And if I do what I do not want to do, I agree that the law is good. As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. For I know that good itself does not dwell in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For I do not do the good I want to do, but the evil I do not want to do—this I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want to do, it is no longer I who do it, but it is sin living in me that does it.
    So I find this law at work: Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God’s law; but I see another law at work in me, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within me. What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to God, who delivers me through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself in my mind am a slave to God’s law, but in my sinful nature a slave to the law of sin." —

  20. Imo you should consider doing a video about "Which kind of salt is less bad for you?", the consensus around it are pretty obscure and the studies are all around the place, and some people(like me) really really struggle to quit it successfully and is a serious health risk.

  21. Cheers for the Video! Forgive me for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you considered – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (do a google search)? It is a smashing one of a kind product for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs without the hard work. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my best friend Jordan finally got cool success with it.

  22. Short answer:the data points to diet soda being better but moderation is key and u need to have a healthy lifestyle and just because it has zero calories or natural sugar that doesnt mean u can get more of something else like ice cream or whateva

  23. Lovely video content! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard the talk about – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (do a google search)? It is an awesome exclusive guide for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs minus the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my buddy after many years got cool success with it.

  24. Big question.. what about alcohol, which has no labels? Hell soda sucks altogether anyway, let’s dive deeper into this.. bearing the question, what about seltzer waters or seltzer alcohols?

  25. I drink a Diet Coke pretty much everyday
    But that is sometimes only what I have the entire day
    Depression sucks but at least it didn’t kill my love for coke

  26. diet soda causes more more food craving. just don’t overeat shits because of it then diet soda is much better.

  27. It seems to me like people just assume now that they drink diet soda they are automatically healthy and neglect other forms of health watching. They dont exercise, they dont cut out other unhealthy foods or drinks, they just think "well i switched to diet soda so im good now" which results in the negative statistics. Like you drink the diet soda, and then you proceed to still sit down all day and maybe have some cookies. That’s not healthy, that’s just cutting out a single thing.

    As far as my situation goes im simply trying to lose weight, which the zero calories of course appeals to me. And regardless of any potential long term negative effects its clearly a good tool to use for this short term weight loss goal when combined of course with other things like exercise. You cant expect to switch to diet soda and immediately just be immune to any medical problem.

  28. Many thanks, I’ve been looking for "bulking up tips muscle" for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of – Senictoria Bulking Paradise – (do a search on google ) ? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my neighbour got excellent success with it.
