Diet soda may lead to more belly fat as you age


Diet soda may lead to more belly fat as you age
The News Journal

They determined that daily and occasional diet soda drinkers gained nearly three times as much belly fat as non-drinkers, after they ruled out other factors such as age, exercise and smoking. The diet soda drinkers added an average of 2.11 centimeters (.83 inches) to their waist circumferences, while the non-drinkers added .77 centimeters (.3 inches). Daily consumers like me gained a striking 3.04 centimeters (1.19 inches).Men, European Americans, people with a body mass index greater than 30 and people who did not have diabetes fared the worst.You don't want belly fat (visceral fat in technical terms), especially as you reach your later years, when it is associated with greater incidence of mortality, cardiovascular disease, Type 2 diabetes and insulin resistance. High waist circumference is also one component of metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors that also includes high triglycerides, blood pressure and blood glucose.
