Yikes! What Happens to Your Body One Hour After Drinking a Can of Diet Coke

By Luke Miller TruthTheory.com

It’s been a mad few days over at Truth Theory, we published an article by Niraj Naik called What Happens One Hour After Drinking A Can Of Coke and it went viral, but it didn’t stop there with the article getting picked up by a lot of mainstream media.

The article has been trending on Facebook in the UK, USA and India for the last 3 days, and was featured in print, on television, the radio and just about everywhere else.

This is great news as we are getting a message out about something which is very important, but we didn’t want this to lead to people thinking that sugar is necessarily the worse option available.

Ribena has hit the headlines recently with them removing sugary products from the shelves in the UK and Pepsi has also been in the news recently for removing aspartame from its products.

Which asks the question are diet cokes any better than the regular stuff?

There is a good chance you have heard of Aspartame as it seems to get all the press, but it is not the only worrying substance that is in diet coke.

And Attacks Your Teeth

The phosphoric acid attacks the enamel in your teeth, while the artificial sweeteners like aspartame hit your system. Studies have proven aspartame triggers the taste receptors and tricks your body into thinking it has just processed sugar.

20 Minutes – May Switch On Fat Storage Mode

Like regular Coke this can trigger insulin, which sends your body into fat storage mode.

Data from a number of studies, including the Nurses’ Health Study and the Health Professionals Follow-up Study also reported greater risk of type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease.

Also some data indicates those who consume artificially sweetened beverages double the risk of metabolic syndrome which is related to diabetes and cardiovascular problems

40 Minutes – Can Cause Addiction

The potentially deadly combination of caffeine and aspartame creates a short addictive high similar in the way cocaine works. Excitotoxins are released which may exhaust your brain by overstimulating it’s neuroreceptors, especially if consumed on a regular basis.

60 Minutes –

May Deplete Nutrients, Make You Hungry & Thirsty For More

Unlike the small amount of satisfaction you get from regular coke your body may still crave sweets. This makes you likely to reach for another soda, or worse, some other junk food you consider to be safe and the cycle continues.

A can of diet coke provides no nourishment and would replace a more nutritious drink you could have drunk while potentially depleting your body of essential minerals.

It will never quench your thirst as it dehydrates rather than hydrates your body. A lack of vital water can lead to brain fog, poor concentration, fatigue and feeling irritable.
