The Truth About Diet Sodas And Stored Body Fat


shutterstock_173480060

Every bodybuilder knows that fast-digesting carbs increase your body’s propensity to increase stored fat. That’s particularly true when you swill down sodas that are high in corn syrup without dietary fats or fiber to slow their absorption or insulin impact. The end result is more stored body fat.

Instead, many athletes and overweight people opt for diet sodas due to the fact that many contain no calories or carbohydrates. While it seems this may be the best way to go for a bodybuilder trying to shed the last few pounds of body fat, a recent study indicates that diet sodas may promote fat gain through a different physi-ological response, despite the fact they contain no calo-ries, sugars, or carbs.

A study recently published in Nature indicates that diet sweeteners, including aspartame, sucralose, and saccha-rin, may negatively impact the amount of healthy bacteria in your GI tract. Regardless of whether you’re fit or over-weight, this flora provides many benefits, such as pre-venting many harmful bacteria and toxins from entering through your digestive tract. They also reduce a person’s propensity to develop type-2 diabetes, so consuming large amounts of dietary sweeteners may negatively impact your long-term health.

IM Advice: Eliminate high fructose corn syrup from your diet and only consume minimal amounts of sugar, except before and after workouts. In addition, keep your intake of dietary sweeteners low, empha-sizing stevia over other options.
