Usually when you start a new diet, you are asked to give up regular sodas in favor of diet sodas. But is drinking diet sodas really healthy?
The main benefit of switching to diet soda is the lower number of calories consumed. Most regular sodas contain over 100 calories per 12oz.can.
If you have several cans of regular sodas a day, you may be taking in several hundred extra calories. Diet sodas, on the other hand, normally have zero calories. So you can instantly lower your caloric intake by several hundred calories when you make the switch.
