Wellness Tip: When trying to lose weight, low-calorie diet soda may seem like a good beverage option. If the consumption of artificial chemicals doesn't dissuade you in its own right, consider this: Those who opt for a diet soda often consume more overall calories. You may think you have some leeway, but if you are not careful you can easily exceed any calories saved with your food intake. Artificial sweeteners are also sweeter than regular sugar. As your taste buds become adjusted to the sweeter taste, you begin to crave sweeter foods. Handling cravings while dieting becomes even more difficult. Instead, choose water or sparkling water flavored with a splash of fresh citrus fruit.
