Hence, the overall effect of diet soda is a tendency toward weight gain, not loss. Also diet coke only works in diabetic diets.

So if your out at a fastfood joint, skip the diet coke and order a regular cola. Unless your diabetic.

The problem with sweeteners is that (according to research) they also induce the secretion on insulin by binding to the same cell membrane receptor (supposedly) as glucose, however without the caloric compensation of sugar since they don't provide substrate for cellular metabolism. What you end up with is a relative hypoglycemic state since your fats, muscles and liver take in your glucose without having remaining glucose to normalize blood levels. Because of this, not only do you increase fatty acid production, you also get hungry because you have to compensate the sugars lost from your blood.

So yes, you get a fat ass with a fatty liver while feeling tired and hungry at the same time. Sweeteners ironically become appetite enhancers because you aren't satiated, which sort of fuels the vicious cycle of eating more and more.
Ironically, my post of quotes is placed in THIS PARTICULAR THREAD where people could just laugh at diet coke drinkers who think they are safe.

So toDAY, we shall LAUGH at the expense of others.

When three puppygirls named after pastries are on top of each other, it is called Eclair a'la menthe et Biscotti aux fraises avec beaucoup de Ricotta sur le dessus.
Most of all, you have to be disciplined and you have to save, even if you hate our current financial system. Because if you don't save, then you're guaranteed to end up with nothing.
