    Cool Does diet pop make you fat?

    I switched to diet pop about 2 yrs ago and since I've gained 10 pounds. I didn't make the switch to lose weight, but I thought it would help me maintain where I was. But, now I feel like a puff daddy, gained 10 pounds. What's up????

    Consume more than you burn = gain weight.

    High Fructose Corn Syrup. Stay away from that if you are trying to lose weight.

    Re: Does diet pop make you fat?

    Weird, must be something else in your diet or exercise. I drink a lot of pop and made the switch to diet a few years back and between that and not eating as much junk food I lost 20 pounds pretty quickly and lost nearly 40 pounds in 2 years and that was all just watching what I eat while still splurging on stuff I like once in awhile. I need to get back to that mentality again as I let it slip a little over the past year and put on about 10 pounds.

    Re: Does diet pop make you fat?

    Diet Soda has zero calories, so that's not the issue. If you're ordering a diet soda with a double quarter pounder with cheese everyday that might be more of an issue.

    I drink way to much soda, mostly because I hate coffee, and it usually peaks every winter when the days are shortest. I call it, "putting on my winter coat".

    Re: Does diet pop make you fat?

    Diet pop uses asparteme or some other artificial sweetener that tastes sweet to your tongue, but is useless to you body as energy. Your body doesn't break it down, which means it doesn't get energy out of it, which means it receives to calories from the sweetener.

    You are not gonna convince me that it doesn't have other biochemical ramifications though.

    If you hit 40 or 50, your activity system might have slowed down.

    My wife says she heard the artificial sweeteners make your hungrier. You might be eating more without realizing it.

    Re: Does diet pop make you fat?

    There's been a theory that the sweet taste triggers a reaction in your body to expect calories to show up shortly. When those calories don't appear via the diet pop, your body causes you to seek out the calories it was expecting and you end up eating more. I don't know if that theory was ever proven or disproven.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Does diet pop make you fat?

    Supposedly it can lead you to favor sweets more than if you didnt' drink it, but you were already doing that switching from regular to diet, so I doubt any increase came from diet.
