September 12, 2015 2 min read

Many people have this idea that when the word "diet" comes before their all-time favourite beverage, that they can consume as many as they want in one day. But new research has discovered a problem to their plan. A study has found that when people pick up a can of Diet Coke, while they're typically drinking it to avoid unnecessary calorie consumption, it leads them to compensate by eating up very unhealthy foods. sugar In fact, the study found that people who sipped diet drinks were found to eat an average of 69 calories of excess sugary, fatty, salty or cholesterol-raising foods. So if you've switched from regular Coke to Diet Coke due to your desire to maintain your weight or slim down, then you may be doing it all wrong.  scale The research, which was led by Dr Ruopeng An, of the University of Illinois, reviewed data regarding the dietary habits of more than 22,000 US adults. Spanning over the course of 10 years, the data is part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, in which people were asked to recollect their food and drink intake over the course of two non-consecutive days, including their consumption of diet or sugar-free drinks and sugar-sweetened beverages, like sodas. diet coke The results found which drinks lead to the most extra snacking.
  1. Alcohol: 384 calories
  2. Sugar-sweetened beverages: 226 calories
  3. Coffee: 108 calories
  4. Diet beverages: 69 calories
  5. Tea: 64 calories 
"It may be that people who consume diet beverages feel justified in eating more, so they reach for a muffin or a bag of chips," Dr. An said. "Or perhaps, in order to feel satisfied, they feel compelled to eat more of these high-calorie foods." Do you drink diet sodas regularly?
