You are wrong if you thought diet soda was healthier as they use artificial sweeteners. A new study found that people who regularly drink diet soda gain about triple the abdominal fat compared to non-drinkers.
According to a study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society, people who daily drank diet soda for about 10 years gained almost triple the abdominal fat than those who did not drink diet soda.
The waist circumferences of diet soda drinkers gained about 2.11 centimeters, while non-users gained 0.77 centimeters around the waist. Daily consumers gained a whopping 3.04 centimeters, while occasional users' waist increased 1.76 cm.
