  • oh please. i drink 2 liters of soda daily combined with 1 or 2 energy drinks for last ten years and im 5’10” 155 lbs. So clearly their data is skewed.

  • A few seconds in and I’m confused. He keeps referring to diet drinks as… sweet… tasty…. ewww… diet drinks are foul and chemical tasting. Artificial sweeteners don’t count as sweet to me. I don’t understand how anyone can drink them…

  • Later studies have shown that artificial sweeteners do not cause an insulin response so how does this fit in with diet sodas causing insulin stimulation in the pancreas?

  • I’m not sure but,if anyone else needs to find out about can sugar free gum cause stomach problems? try Jayceren Fat Result Method (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some super things about it and my colleague got excellent success with it.

  • Fluoride? Not a good thing to be recommending any more. Why did you here? Now I’m prone to questioning your researchers validity please care more

  • only drink water…. learn from my personal experiment… drinking 12 ozs a day will give you type 2 in 2 years…. 100% Guaranteed

  • I disagree with your advice that drinking sodas and diet sodas in moderation is ok. Most people are creatures of habit, so “moderation” is bad advice to the vast majority of humans. Even if someone is capable of drinking soda rarely, it’s like saying “poison in moderation is ok.” While you might not notice the negative effects of sodas and diet sodas immediately in smaller amounts, that doesn’t mean they are harmless in moderation.

  • I only drink rootbeer cuz its so good. I crave it because I must crave the sugar. I’m going to try to only have some on the weekends to cut down its a good idea. Then maybe after a while cut it out completely.

  • eu sou um brasileirinho q esta perdido aqui. se vc é brasileiro replique essa mensagem em outros vides de gringos pois brasileiros unidos jamais serão vencidos

  • Soda taste so fucking good but I leave that shit for the weekends only. And that’s if I feel like I want some. Glad I’m finding out how bad it is for you at a young age

  • Cheers for the Video! Forgive me for the intrusion, I would appreciate your opinion. Have you researched Dinanlinson Shrinking Body Approach (probably on Google)? It is a smashing one of a kind guide for discovering a weird waist slimming water to lose belly fat without the normal expense. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my close friend Aubrey after a lifetime of fighting got cool results with it.

  • I was only on 1300 cal a day, but drinking up to 12 or more sugar-free Cokes a day /alt with caffiene free… but cldnt lose weight. Took me 3 yrs to give up coke but once I did my weight fell off tho I ate more.. weird..

  • @multihappydayz
    Wow, seriously? Read a nutrition book. You are painfully uninformed. Salt causes water retention. Drinking water causes urination and sweat; nothing else.

  • Winner of a video, I have been researching “keys to bulking up” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Senictoria Bulking Paradise (just google it )? Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my m8 got cool results with it.

  • hi everyone,if anyone else is searching for is it bad to chew gum on an empty stomach? try Jayceren Fat Result Method (search on google )? Ive heard some awesome things about it and my mate got great results with it.

  • all this talk of soda is making me thirsty… pass me a coke… no, better yet, what ever happened to Jolt cola? I gotta get me some of that!

  • This video is bs I lost 80 pounds with diet soda. No plain water. Granted, I got inflammation, but everyone is different and not sure if it’s the soda that’s the cause. Also I’m not diabetic I believe. Just tested my blood. If it’s right, I either reversed in when I did low carb, or I’m a crazy person that can eat more sugar than 5 diabetics combined and live to tell the tale lol. But yeah I’m sure water would be better, but for weight loss I did fine

  • Used to drink 8 to 11 diet Cokes a day, damaged my teeth, upset my stomach, and didn’t sleep well… even tho I drank caffiene free after 2pm! Rotten cancer causing stuff..Great 4 cleaning yr BBQ, toilet..they use it to clean CAR accident sites, blood off road. It’s a corrosive like acid

  • I drink on average 10 Diet Coke’s a week. Honestly, though, EVERYTHING is bad for you if you overdo it. All things in moderation, people.

  • You’ll get more shut eye
    Your heart will thank you
    Your skin will thank you
    Everyone will love your smile
    Your hair might get healthier
    You could lose weight
    You will crave less sugar
    Your sense of taste may strength
    Initially,you might feel irritable
    You may crave carbonation
    Your immune system may improve
    You might miss the flavor
    You could boost your brain health
    Your bladder will thank you
    You might just live longer
    You’ll probably feel better

  • Knock off the mindless hipster b.s. Unless they’re medically contraindicated, sodas drunk in moderation are harmless. None of the lifelong Coca-Cola drinkers I know have any of the problems listed.

    Worry about the gallons of wine you jerks guzzle every week instead.

    And get rid of that awful script reader. Her voice is like fingernails on a chalkboard.

  • I get why they would try to put a law and limited oz on beverages, but thats the persons right to choose whether to be healthy or drink freely which it practicaly taking one of our rights away even though we could still buy two drink with the law in order.

  • The tooth decay, at least, will be a result of regular soda too.

    On the bright side, you can’t store fat from energy consumed while drinking diet soda, if you don’t eat anything while drinking it.

  • If your trying to loose weight Diet Coke or stuff like sugar free gum is great. As long as your getting active and burning calories. Stuff like Diet Coke is good to satisfy your cravings. It was one of my tricks when I was loosing weight.

  • Forget the insulin stuff…i heard claims regular drinking of diet soda can cause brain cancer…the video didn’t mention those claims. Maybe its another myth…i love diet soda especially coke zero….regular sugary stuff and drinks makes me sick and tolerance for actual sugar is very low..i find diet drinks satisfying without the harmful or nauseating feelings real sugary drinks give me.

  • I’m not american, but nowadays when it comes to “Soda” the whole world seems to lost control about it, you find soda in everywhere, anytime or event. The first drink that they see is Soda to any occasion instead of a natural juice and it is becoming very dangerous because you see kids drinking it every day and their parents don’t say anything.

  • I noticed that the light orangelemonade in the glass releases tiny bubbles from carbondioxide and it sounded like a tiny schoolbell ringing in the glass, perhaps it is a wake up call.

  • I still say aspartame is addictive. I don’t even like cola, let alone diet cola, but if i stop chewing sugar free gum for more than a week I get this horrible craving for it. Drink half and then can’t stomach the rest.

  • Diet Soda was my vise. I drank caffeine free Diet Soda Morning, Noon and Night. I stopped drinking caffeine free Diet Soda about 2 years ago, I now Lost my taste for it. I drink lots of water and/orgar free seltzer. I have not lost 1 pound. I do not over eat, but I have not lost 1 pound, so I don’t believe it.

  • I haven’t really drink pop for so much years since i think i stop drinking pop at 13 years old, i honestly agree they sure ain’t good for anyone
    To have in my opinion.

  • I left fizzy drinks almost one year ago now I feel like a normal humen being with no fighting spirit and now more calm say no to soda forever and drink water or eat fruits ������

  • Well while all of y’all starve and cry yourselves to sleep I’m going to die a happy 40 year old with a thick cut fried bologna sandwich a Diet Coke and a Marlboro red as my last meal I don’t care how much you health nuts put out there saying it can cause cancer news flash brother I know and I don’t care of course then again this video wasn’t meant for basement hermits I don’t think better go back to porn lest I incur a flame war

  • This video is only perpetuating the falsehoods of diet soda. As a type 1 diabetic diet soda is my go to since I’d have to do a ton of insulin if I drank a regular soda. However even though I know it’s fine. I still run into a ton of people who judge me and say “you know that diet soda is worse for you than regular soda, right?” To which I have to go through a whole explanation as to why I [ type 1 diabetic] would need to stab myself and artificially cause hyperglycemia just to have a regular pop, and unlike me that normal person wouldn’t have to do the same. Like I am so sick of non diabetics and non health care professionals trying to tell me how to manage my illness. Stop acting all high and mighty. I DIDNT cause myself to develop diabetes, my body thought my pancreas was a bacteria and thus my immune system wiped it out ( to put in the most simple of terms).

  • these soda companies are funny. “Soda in moderation” LOL like they are not in business to make money but make sure people drink their product in moderation!! LOL And Mcdonald’s is in business to sure people don’t starve to death. yeah right. without high consumer consumption of soda these soda companies would not be in business for very long.

  • I have type 1 diabetesgot it from genetics when i was 4( nothing to do with my diet ). Will my body still go into fat storage mode when my pancreas doesn’t even produce insulin?

  • Can you make one on what happens to your body when you stop smoking? My husband smokes and it drives me crazy because it’s so harmful

  • why are you telling us the history of carbonated beverages? This video was supposed to tell us what happened when we take one sip!!!! Stop wasting people’s time

  • That’s because the people who the studies were done on were already Fat and obese and they switch to diet soda to lose weight yet they still eat bad foods and were already prone to these diseases. If a healthy person of an average bodyweight drinks diet soda, it is much better than regular soda.

  • It’s been 3 days since I’ve had soda, I crave it a lot but I used to drink a can or Pepsi soda, I miss it sure but I know I need to do this if I want to improve my health and become fit again

  • I quit drinking soda 6 months ago and now it tastes funny to me I don’t like it. I NEVER thought in a million years I’d quit bc I was a die-hard soda drinker for like almost 20 yrs! But it was the best thing I ever did… I lost 87 lbs and never felt better

  • Nice Video clip! Apologies for chiming in, I am interested in your opinion. Have you heard the talk about Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (do a search on google)? It is an awesome one of a kind guide for Getting a bikini ready body in 60 days without the headache. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my mate after a lifetime of fighting got cool results with it.

  • Let me just say this………… PEOPLE USE SODA TO DISSOLVE BATTERY ACID AND CLEAN MANY OTHER THINGS THAt NOT EVEN CHEMICALS WILL REMOVE!!!!!! What do you think it’ll do to your insides!! Of course it causes cancer and many other things, and in my opinion you don’t need much of it to get ill, but what the heck, I’m just an idiot without a medical degree, what do I know

  • @chihuahuabebi I’m sorry, but no. My father has diabetes just from drinking diet soda’s in his early 20’s. They hide the sugar by not putting in the main lable, but in the ingredients.

  • 7 min 40 seconds in before even approaching the health issues with diet sodas and then it’s just coffee pours overly bland voice “Well it might be not good or it might be not bad but just whatever.” Ugh

  • Stop spreading false information to people. I drink diet coke on a daily basis and I’m still very lean. It has zero calories, just like water.

  • Kudos for the Video! Forgive me for chiming in, I would appreciate your thoughts. Have you tried Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (just google it)? It is a good exclusive product for Getting a bikini ready body in 60 days without the normal expense. Ive heard some incredible things about it and my GF after a lifetime of fighting got amazing success with it.

  • The body burns on average 2000 2500 kcal per day period. So if you put on weight then it is simply because of your eating habits and not because of diet soda.

  • 8/2/20 I lost 61 Lbs. since the first week of march. I drink a gallon and a half of diet cola a day. But again it depends on your physiology.

  • @chihuahuabebi Okay, you win. I just meant, my father was clinically proven by multiple doctors that the source of his diabetes was caused by drinking diet soda’s (his favorite drink)…. but i truly think you may have the upper hand.:)

  • We very seldom drink a whole can of soda with a meal,
    so we both
    stopped drinking soda from 12 oz (355 ML) cans and now drink
    16.9 oz (500 ml) bottles of soda so we can put the twist caps back on,

    and put half back in the fridge so we can finish the soda the next day.

    Reusing the twist caps keeps a bottle of soda from going “flat”.

    I tend to drink more instant coffee (with milk & no sugar)

    and fruit juice to further reduce my consumption of sugar.

    Thousands of years before modern medicine provided scientific evidence for the mind-body connection, the sages of India developed Ayurveda, which continues to be one of the world’s most sophisticated and powerful mind-body health systems.

    More than a mere system of treating illness, Ayurveda is a science of life (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge). It offers a body of wisdom designed to help people stay vibrant and healthy while realizing their full human potential.

  • but what about diet sodas? it doesn’t really have sugar in it, its mostly artificial so how does it affect the body? i drink a diet soda once every day

  • I’ve always been a skinny girl and used to take advantage of that. I used to drink like 2 packs of soda A DAY. Coke, root beer etc. any soda it didn’t matter as long as it was soda and sugary. It was like hell when my mom tried to get me to drink a bottle of water. That’s how addicted I was to the sugary drinks. But I’ve since then quit a few months ago and I rarely drink soda now!:D

  • Huh. I was surprised to not find reactive hypoglycemia on the list of symptoms of metabolic syndrome. Given that I have been drinking >15 cans of diet pepsi per day for over a decade and hypoglycemia is the only thing I’ve acquired as far as health problems are concerned (and yes, I get a full CBC panel run every year).

  • Hes like vsauce, he asks a question and proceeds to answer that question with more questions until he reaches the answer he was supposed to give us

  • I haven’t had soda or ANY carbonated drinks in 10 YEARS!! The improvements in my overall health in is incredible! I encourage everyone to stop drinking this poison.

    The main reason the American Beverage Association dismissed this study as “totally unscientific” is bc their source of revenue has no interest in public health. ALL they want is for the major beverage companies in the U.S. to remain profitable. They don’t care if u become a diabetic.They just want u to keep drinking this poison.

  • Omg my dad swears diet soda is better than regular soda, he drinks it everyday at almost every hour… Then he teases me because i only drink water or tea��

  • Kudos for the Video clip! Apologies for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried Taparton Impressive Look Takeover (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great exclusive guide for Getting a bikini ready body in 60 days minus the hard work. Ive heard some interesting things about it and my friend Sam at very last got excellent success with it.

  • I always thought diet soda is dumb. Sugar is a part of soda. So…how can there be a “diet” soda? To my logic, it always seemed stupid. I am glad more people are being informed about the effects of drinking too much diet soda, other drinks and food that is harmful to the body IF consumed a lot.

  • We all must stay away from all types of soda. Replace with water. Over the long run, heavy soda consumption with greatly contribute to our premature death in some shape or form.

  • I’m probably dead been a while whit my 3x 2 litters of diet Pepsi daily no dang human body are so powerful i got nothing wrong but my stomach i solve this stomach trouble with baking soda

  • Only solution other than water is.. 100 percent fruit juice at least you know the sugar is fructose.. not the best but far better than all the rest…

  • I have drank dr pepper since I can remember and a lot. Im 21 and I drink about 3 liters a day. I have never seen myself gain over 150 pound thanks to a high metabolism

  • Soda has no health benefits, zero/none. Will just make you fat. And the most dangerous kind of fat. This holds true for both regular and diet soda. The government at a minimum should put health warnings on soda products.

  • Even if artificial sweeteners don’t trigger insulin release, that’s actually worse because if we don’t trigger insulin, internally, when drinking something sweet, the fake sugars will accumulate in the liver and be stored as non alcoholic fat.

    It’s better to have the real coke once a week than diet coke every day.

    Facts are facts.

    Look it up for yourselves.

  • I’m here because I’m a diet soda addict. I’m lying in bed sick as a dog today. My stomach hurts so bad. I have been told how bad it is for you. I know I have to stop it all together. I’m scared that I won’t be able to do it. Please pray for me. Ellie ann. August 2nd 2020

  • Nice video content! Sorry for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you ever tried Dinanlinson Shrinking Body Approach (do a google search)? It is an awesome one off guide for discovering a weird waist slimming water to lose belly fat without the hard work. Ive heard some amazing things about it and my m8 after a lifetime of fighting got amazing success with it.

  • I dont like this delivery of information. Very distracting and time consuming. The actual information ib this video could’ve been said in 5 minutes

  • My mum can’t have diet drinks it destroys her bladder

    Then you got my grandad that’s never buys me my favourite Coca Cola

    CHERRY like I don’t want diet cola i want cherry Coca Cola but I ain’t going to moan his a nice person at least i get my Coca Cola

  • Tbh soda is very good but it’s bad for u, so u guys can still drink soda but not to much. I drink soda like once a month a guess just barely any…

  • It’s not the diet soda that causes the weight gain. It’s more of the artificial sweeteners in it, which trigger you to crave sweets and an increase in hunger, or tricks your body to eat more, which in turn causes weight gain. So then, people blame it all on the diet soda. (Plus the media over exaggerates everything). Diet soda might not always be the best option due to chemicals, but there’s no harm from the weigh gain. When I have it in the house, I usually have two decent size glasses a day, and I always feel fine. It’s all about moderation, to be honest.

  • There a sources to weight loss. Diet Coke isn’t healthy, yeah, but you can always go to the gym. a lot of foods contain ingredients that lead to weight gain. It’s not just soda. #addictofdietcoke4L

  • I dumped sodas for a year now
    got stuck with water
    i can’t describe to you how my body got better
    i feel like a young man again
    and i am only 21!

  • I’m in the UK.
    I don’t drink a lot of fizzy drinks but used to have sugar free cordial now and again.
    After reading and seeing all the numerous ‘dangers’ of sugar free cordial and fizzy drinks I decided to have full sugar coke now and then and full sugar OASIS sometimes.
    Guess what? I’ve dropped 2 pounds in weight and BMI lowered too.
    As long as it’s not in excess…I would say have normal sugared drinks… but only sporadically!

  • I exercise but not like running except when playing/training for baseball. I do lift a few times a week, so i must have a high metabolism

  • I wonder if those of us who dri nk diet soda really actually enjoy the taste. I didn’t ever enjoy the taste at all, yet I found myself still drinking it from time to time, am I insane? No just honestly wondering why we drink it at all. I enjoy the flavor of regular cola. I actually disliked coffee and tea also but I still drank it until I acquired the taste for it. Now if that isn’t stupid I dunno what is. 😉

  • I love coke and it is my only bad habit. I have no intention of stopping my Coke consumption. I only drink one twelve oz can a day

  • If only the coke company used stevia, or xylitol to sweeten the beverage perhaps I would drink it because those ingredients are good for you. Since they are not looks like they are working with doctors to get more patients in

  • the average american drinks 20oz of cola a day? oh fuck me no wonder why this country is full of fat fuck heads trying to blame it on genetics

  • Lmao people wanna go on a diet? Just drink enough water, even if you’re not thirsty. Eat few calorie foods like apples, bananas and stuff. And do exercise. It literally works for everyone. If you’re gonna say “IT DOESNT WORK FOR ME”


  • Stopped drinking soda for like 2-3 months now, decided to finally have one today…..I didn’t enjoy it, too much gas �� I think I enjoy the water more honestly

  • It is all about thermodynamics, if you drink something that contains no calories so you cant get overweigth because of it, but if you always eat something and drink diet soda yes it migth seems like you get overweigth because of the diet soda but if it says 0 calorie it cant make any differences in your body

  • From someone who is stopping drinking atleast 2L of soda per day. Im prepared to take on the few weeks where I will feel useless. Right now im on day 1. Of course. We have to start somewhere!

  • So much false YouTube shit. Everyone on here is anti coke anti junk food anti McDonald’s. Anti life really lol you’ll be super depressed and die of a heart attack with no children. Bollocks. I’m a healthy weight with a beautiful child and healthy lifestyle and yeah I drink diet soda
