The Diet Soda Myth and Barriers to Good Research

The Diet Soda Myth and Barriers to Good Research

A recent study had a lot of negative things to say about diet sodas, but how seriously should we take that study? Observational research can be powerful and useful, but it can also lead to shaky outcomes. So, what does this study tell us about some of the limitations in how research is done?

  1. Thanks for the video content! Sorry for chiming in, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you heard about – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (google it)? It is a great exclusive guide for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs without the headache. Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my m8 at last got cool results with it.

  2. But in keto we add artificial sweetners. A lot of them especially in keto desserts. What’s the difference?

  3. Hi there, have you considered this diet plan called the Okibetonic Secrets? My friend says it helps people lost a lot of weight. Is that possible? I also read numerous excellent review relating to this diet plan. Thoughts?

  4. Guys. lost lots of weight does not need to be hard (I used to feel it did). I’ll give you some advice now. Get a popular diet plan program called Custokebon Secrets (google search it). Thanks to it I’ve lost tons of weight. I probably should not even be speaking about it cause I don’t want a lot of other guys out there running the same game but whatever. I am just simply in a excellent mood right now so I will share the wealth lol.

  5. With my chronic illness (ME/CFS) I am unable to tolerate alcohol, wheat, or dairy, let alone smoking or pot. Diet coke is my only vice but I’m also terrified it’s causing serious neurological problems. I have gone long periods without it with no benefit (mainly because I was in a foreign country without it and I don’t like their version.) I don’t have weight problems, and my blood pressure is low. I feel GOOD when I drink it, (maybe because I’m getting my fix) not bad, and it’s something to look forward to when I eat a healthy diet and have given up a lot of things. I also make sure to drink a lot of water. But I have been drinking basically from my mother’s milk and am now in my 30s so I also feel if it’s messing me up I’m basically doomed. Every blog about my disease that mentions diet sodas tells me to give it up, but with no proper research or studies on anything besides potential weight gain.

    Also if anyone needs a subject for research those of us with chronic fatigue and chronic illness are so grateful for all the help we can get! We get hyped about new studies and scientists who research in our area are heroes to us. Long Covid organizations are teaming up with ME/CFS organizations more research money is available!

  6. Personally, I don’t trust sugar or fat related studies conducted on US citizens. The "normal factors" are exaggerated compared to other countries, so the data will be affected.

  7. Very well presented. Honest and transparent. High vocabulary and well articulated. Had to watch it twice to process the big words. Great job though team.

  8. There’s a lot of people that I know who drink regular soda because they think diet soda is bad for you. Complete nonsense.

  9. I started losing weight when I switch from regular soda to diet soda. I mean I don’t drink it like water.

  10. diet soda is also great for bodybuilding, the caffeine suppresses apatite and plus 0 calories

  11. People need to chill bout and drink sodas within moderation. To much of anyone thing can be bad

  12. 1:08 – Healthcare Triage argues that research concludes artificial sweetners ovr sugr. Most recent research supports the opposite.
    1:35 – ice cream n pie have sugr. In video or two it say’s sugr causes cancer. One say’s take in moderation.
    1:42 – don’t drink too many soft drinks diet or not.
    1:48 – moderation is what u should do.
    1:55 – Healthcare Triage is a processor who did research for 10 yrs.
    4:24 – shouldn’t think diet sodas r bettr.
    4:29 – many new observational studies don’t add more understanding.

  13. This guy looks like he’s got some kind of precious metal or currency in his last name.

  14. Your a moron. Chemicals from nature are made cheaper by people in order to make more profits , it’s common sense a lot of stuff is awful for you. And I can tell you the health of my diet soda sucking family compared to me. Straight facts I live and see in my life diet soda and what it does to all of you overweight people. Keep lying to yourself people. It must be the air you all breath making you fat !!

  15. It would be a shame for you not to lose body fat while other typical people are able to shed extra pounds very easily with Okibetonic Secrets (google search it).

  16. Excellent Video clip! Excuse me for chiming in, I would love your opinion. Have you researched – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one off product for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs without the headache. Ive heard some decent things about it and my BF after a lifetime of fighting got amazing success with it.

  17. This video has great advice, but I am not sure about the best diet plan which i need to use, only because I have never used any. Anyone tried using the Custokebon Secrets? I’ve noticed several folks refer to great things about Custokebon Secrets.

  18. When considering eating healthy, you must never fall victim to modern fad diet plans. Extreme diet plans undoubtedly are a danger for your health, especially ones that seriously restrict your every day nutritional intake. While they might induce fast weight loss, these diet plans will never be a long-term solution for your waistline. It is best to search Okibetonic Secrets on google search engine as it is not just another fad diet where you starve yourself.

  19. Excellent Video! Apologies for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you heard about – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great exclusive guide for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs without the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my mate at last got cool results with it.

  20. Big Soda trying to capture the small amount of people trying to use the CICO diet in life. But telling everyone else that The chemicals in Diet pop are going to kill you… just to keep you from buying the less addictive sugar free cal free soda. After all Sugar is the most addictive drug of all

  21. Is Okibetonic Secrets effective to lost lots of weight? I’ve learn many good stuff about Okibetonic Secrets (just search it on google).

  22. So if I’m used to drinking 15-20 beers daily and now I’m switching to diet coke instead, can’t be that bad of a thing

  23. Thanks for the Video! Apologies for the intrusion, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you heard about – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (just google it)? It is a good one of a kind guide for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs without the hard work. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my friend Sam at last got excellent success with it.

  24. I lost 90 pounds in 4 months dieting and drink an insane amount of diet soda probably 6 cans a day and I’m very healthy now

  25. OR you could just stick to the cheapest, healthiest drink of all time: water. And sometimes fruit juice or coffee, with natural sweeteners

  26. It’s still amaze me just how many people don’t know about Okibetonic Secrets (just search it on google) even though a lot of people lost tons of weight using it. Thanks to my pal who told me about it. I have lost a lot of fat.

  27. This video has good information, but I am confused about the best diet plan which i need to use, only because I have never taken any. Anybody tried using the Okibetonic Secrets? I have heard many people refer to unbelivable things about Okibetonic Secrets.

  28. Anyone tried the Custokebon Secrets (search on google)? I have noticed several amazing things about this popular diet plan program.

  29. Big Soda trying to capture the small amount of people trying to use the CICO diet in life. But telling everyone else that The chemicals in Diet pop are going to kill you… just to keep you from buying the less addictive sugar free cal free soda. After all Sugar is the most addictive drug of all

  30. It’s really crazy that just by switching to no calorie sweeteners and to low fat things you can lose 8-10 kilos in a year, by still keeping on eating every other junk you eat.

  31. Lovely Video! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would love your initial thoughts. Have you researched – Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (do a search on google)? It is a great one off product for getting rid of your embarrassing man boobs minus the normal expense. Ive heard some decent things about it and my friend Sam at very last got great results with it.
