A common weight-management strategy is to switch from what are commonly called sugar-sweetened drinks to low- or no-calorie drinks. RELATED: Foods that affect your risk of cancer The trade group the American Beverage Assn. responded to the study with a statement noting that diet beverages have been shown to be effective in weight management.

Does even Diet Coke make you FAT? Sugar-free fizzy drinks make people eat more food

Although overweight and obese adults who drink diet soda eat a comparable amount of total calories as heavier adults who drink sugary beverages, they consume significantly more calories from solid food at both meals and snacks, said Dr Sara Bleich, associate professor with the Bloomberg Schools Department of Health Policy and Management and lead author of the paper. WHY DO DIET DRINKS MAKE PEOPLE EAT MORE? Artificial sweeteners, which are present in large quantities in diet soda, are associated with a greater activation of reward centres in the brain. In other words, among people who drink diet soda, the brains sweet sensors may no longer provide a reliable gauge of energy consumption because the artificial sweetener disrupts appetite control. As a result, consumption of diet drinks may result in increased food intake overall. Using data from the 1999 to 2010 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES), researchers looked at national patterns of drink consumption and caloric intake. What’s YOUR ‘body age’?

In Defense of the Paleo Diet

When was the last time you heard of someone with a sweet potato, broccoli, or blueberry intolerance? READ MORE This Weeks Hot Reads In my book, Your Personal Paleo Code , I argue that the Paleo diet should be used as a starting point because it removes the foods people are most likely to react to. From there, you can reintroduce some of the grey area foods like dairy and grains to see how you tolerate them. What the critics say: The Paleo diet is dangerous because it permits red meat, which clogs our arteries and shortens our lifespan. What the science says: READ MORE The Struggle To Find Trans Love Early studies did seem to suggest that eating red meat increased the risk of heart disease and cancer. However, these http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/garcinia-cambogia-extract—crucial-data-released-231403591.html studies were problematic because of something called the healthy user bias. This is a fancy way of saying that people who engage in behaviors perceived to be unhealthy (whether they are or not) are more likely to engage in other unhealthy behaviors. In studies linking red meat consumption to heart disease and cancer, those who ate more red meat also tended to exercise less, smoke more, eat fewer vegetables, and eat more sugar and processed foods.
