Is diet soda bad for you?
The answer is a resounding yes and for a number of reasons:
1. Sodas bad for your teeth - although diet sodas contain far less sugar than regular sodas and are mostly made up of artificial sweeteners, they're still highly acidic and may damage your teeth in the long run.
2. Diet soda can make you gain weight - even though diet drinks contain less calories than the original beverage, it that they're really that good. They might still be rich in calories. In addition, there's nothing like sweetened drinks to help you develop a craving for other sweet food, which means more calories.
3. Drinking diet sodas makes you drink less of more healthy beverages like water, green tea, or natural juices. You're missing out on the good things and sticking to the bad.
