DIET SODA STUDY-2SH-TRX-VO


IT'S A QUESTION MANY DIETERS ASK --

CAN DRINKING *DIET* SODA HELP YOU LOSE WEIGHT?

A NEW STUDY PUBLISHED IN THE JOURNAL "OBESITY," FOUND THAT IT CAN -- BUT THERE'S A CAVEAT.

IN THE STUDY, 300 DIET SODA DRINKERS WERE PUT ON DIETS AND SPLIT INTO TWO GROUPS -- ONE THAT COULD KEEP DRINKING DIET SODA. AND ONE THAT HAD TO QUIT.

THE GROUP THAT KEPT DRINKING LOST AN AVERAGE OF FOUR ADDITIONAL POUNDS OVER A 12-WEEK PERIOD.

BUT DID THE DIET SODA MAKE THEM SHED THE EXTRA POUNDS?

CRITICS SAY THE DIET SODA DRINKERS WERE MORE SUCCESSFUL BECAUSE THEY HAD IT EASIER.

STICKING TO A NEW DIET TAKES WILLPOWER. AND IT'S EASIER TO DO IF YOU'RE NOT GIVING UP SOMETHING ELSE AT THE SAME TIME. LIKE SODA.
