DOES DRINKING DIET SODA MAKE YOU FAT?


The skinny on diet soda and fat was reported in Tribune newspapers. Researchers found that people who drank diet soda for nearly a  decade  gained more  stomach pudge than diet-drink abstainers.

Those who drank two or more diet soft drinks a day had the largest waistline increases -- about five times more than that of nondrinkers. A Purdue scientist pointed out that  he thinks it's a behavioral phenomenon...that people think they can eat more calories because they've swapped their regular soda for a  Coke Zero.
