It’s an addiction for many and very hard to break, but if you think that diet coke is doing you good, then think again.

1The reason you need to be careful with diet coke

Many who are addicted to coke may be having a guilt-free happy time with that glass of the beverage so ingrained into modern lifestyle habits that many cannot do without. While coke is considered unhealthy, diet coke is considered good because it doesn’t come with the stigma of calories that regular coke does but then again, diet coke is still coke and a soft drink with sugar substitutes you need to be careful of.

Sugar substitutes can be as harmful as sugar in more ways than one. Now studies have proven that diet coke, on the contrary, can actually make you fatter and is just as bad as drinking that regular coke.

The artificial sweeteners and preservatives in soft drinks have led many health experts to worry about neurological damage that they can cause. Preservatives might help food stay longer, but they aren’t good for the body. They can also influence the desire for something sweet. One traditional soft drink as proved contains a whopping nine teaspoons of sugar to every can. In contrast, a diet option certainly sounds better and is also promoted as a low-calorie drink.
