I have to think about this. A beverage without calories, fat or carbs can contribute to being overweight? Story below ... 

The short answer(s) to this question is no and, maybe, yes. One recent study has shown that people who drink diet soda still have a 41 percent chance of being overweight.

What is even more interesting about this research is that these diet-soda drinkers have a greater risk for obesity than do those who drink regular sodas.

How is this possible? It can't be that the diet sodas are causing obesity, since they contain no calories.

Some researchers believe that the problem with diet sodas is this: When people consume diet drinks, they think they're doing something "good" for their body — and then they feel free to splurge on other, high-calorie items.

For example, if you are eating at McDonald's and order a diet soda in place of a regular soda, you may think, "Now I can super-size my meal." People don't do this intentionally; it just happens and we don't pay attention to it — and then the extra pounds slip on board and stow away.

There is also some research that suggests diet sodas may actually stimulate the appetite. This explanation of the relationship between diet sodas and obesity is that the overly sweet taste of diet drinks actually creates a craving for still more sweet things, thus upping calorie consumption.

What then should you do about your drink choices?

First, remember: Everything in moderation. If you are drinking a lot of regular or diet soda each day, decreasing your intake of either may help you lose weight. Also, think about when during the day you drink diet sodas; do you then tend to splurge on other calories?

Although escaping the obesity epidemic isn't as easy as avoiding diet sodas, you should think about what you drink.

A lot of people who drink diet soda are overweight to begin with but don't want to give up soda. Just drink water (unless you're HBF).

Oh, and run five miles a day.

What I don't get, is fat people eat a lot, right?  Usually?  So, they should have a taste for good flavors and stuff and know when something tastes like ass.

Yet they still drink diet.  Which tastes like the ballsweat of hell's most unsavory beasts.

Go figger.

You adjust to the taste. Regular soda starts to taste like cough syrup.

I don't get why one would bother.  Jog a block, then have some good soda.

I started drinking Diet years ago, back in High School, because it didn't make my Teeth hurt like the sugar in Regular soda does.  It took a little while to get used to it, now I prefer it.  I still take a Sugar Coke on occasion, but I'm all about my Diet Coke.

I used to drink regular coke but have drank diet for years now. TAB is the all-time best, although I think it's mostly made of cancer.

I think the bigger issue is the aspartame - which gets linked to words like cancer and body trauma quite a bit.

I couldn't agree more. I can't drink regular 7-up, but I love diet 7-up. Regular soda seems very heavy to me.

I love passover, when you can get coke made with real cane sugar rather than corn syrup. It makes a world of difference.
