Timeline of Body Destruction and Belly Fat Weight Gain:

Various studies have proven that routine consumption of diet soft drinks, like diet soda, soda zero and other similar products, can be connected to a greater risk of heart disease, developing Type 2 Diabetes and metabolic syndrome.

So, what happens just one hour after drinking a can of diet soda?

First 10 minutes – Your taste-buds are deceived, and your teeth are attacked

The high levels of phosphoric acid attack the enamel on your teeth while the artificial sweeteners – aspartame hits your system and fires up your body’s response to sugar.  Many other foods and drinks around the world use the sugar substitute, such as chewing gums and breakfast cereals.

Despite being ‘one of the most thoroughly tested and studied food additives’, food safety experts have been keeping a watchful eye over Aspartame since a number of anecdotal reports pointed to potential side-effects.

A study by Italian researchers at the Ramazzini Foundation in Bologna found that rats given dosages of aspartame equivalent to those in humans may develop tumors and several types of cancer.  Similarly, an EU-funded project published in 2010 found that pregnant women who drank fizzy drinks containing artificial sweeteners appear to be at greater risk of having a premature baby.

20 Minutes – Your Body May ‘switch on’ Fat Storing Mode

Don’t be deceived by the “no sugar” claims, artificial sweeteners can trigger the exact same insulin responses as sugar does, sending your body into far-storing mode.

This is due to artificial sweeteners and sugar alcohols interfering negatively with our natural gut bacteria, compromising our immune system and unbalancing the digestive system, according to Amanda Payne of Switzerland’s Institute of Food, Nutrition and Health.

40 minutes – You crave more

The combination of caffeine and aspartame creates a short burst of adrenaline, in a similar way to how cocaine works according to health coaches in Sacramento CA.  Excitotoxins are then released which act to overstimulate your brain and neuron receptors.

According to a study published in The Scientist “Cravings for more soda are explained by the release of two neurotransmitters in the brain, dopamine and glutamate.  Caffeine and aspartame increase dopamine levels as shown in various studies.

Aspartic acid taken in its free form (unbound to proteins), significantly raises the blood plasma level of aspartate and glutamate.  “Researchers say glutamate is more essential to addiction than dopamine.”

60 minutes – The nutrient-less soda makes you hungry and thirsty for more

Your cravings aren’t going to stop, once you’ve finished your can or bottle of soft drink.  Your appetite for sweets has now been turned on, and you are more likely to turn to other sugary foods or beverages to quell that need.

Marisa Peer, Behavioral psychologist who specializes in eating disorders, said that diet soft drinks are doing more harm than good.  “Artificial sweeteners are associated with a drop in the appetite-regulating hormone leptin.  Leptin is the hormone that inhibits hunger so diet drinks like diet soda actually make you hungry and less satisfied with normal amounts of food, and finally when you eat or drink a lot of chemicals that your body simply cannot break down, your body makes more and more internal fat to wrap the chemicals in keeping those harmful chemicals away from your vital organs,” she says.

“As diet soda has no calories and no recognized ingredients, we know it is a cocktail of chemicals that encourage your body to gain and store weight especially on your legs and belly and near your organs.  Diet drinks are not good for your body, your health, or even as it turns out, for dieting.”
