Choosing a diet soft drink will not garantee you fewer pounds, here's why
The choice of a diet drink often gives a good conscience with its zero calories, but you should be careful with this option.
Studies have shown that some sugar substitutes can deceive the brain in its response to the sweetness of diet drinks and desensitize it to certain emotions and notions such as rewards. In addition, to complicate life even further, the sweet taste of diet drinks would favor the craving for carbohydrates like pastries which can obviously contribute to weight gain. Artificial sugars also deceive the brain into believing that more sugar will come and this tends to maintain a higher insulin level that is associated with inflammation and heart disease.
