Default Is diet soda as bad as they say?

Hey peeps.

I heard that diet soda causes this:

1. Bone Loss
2. Tooth Enamel Damage
3. Weight Gain
4. Kidney Damage

Should I stop drinking this shit?

I drink diet soda...and have done so almost daily for a decade and a half.


1. I have experienced no bone loss. I've been engaged in resistance exercise for the past 17 years. This activity improves/maintains bone density... as do my diet and lifestyle (the latter of which includes sun exposure).


2. My teeth are in good shape. I rinse after diet soda, as well as after any other acidic beverage.


3. No weight gain here.


4. My kidneys are functioning optimally. I maintain a high degree of hydration. It's important to drink plenty of water, regardless of whether you're drinking diet sodas are not.


A lot of the info out there is generic, copy-and-pasted, overly-hyped stuff.


Many think that just ingesting [*insert substance here*] will automatically correlate to some obscure deleterious side effect... but that usually is far from the truth. It is the interplay of dietary and lifestyle factors honestly.

Interesting Nark, I have read that diet soda is bad for you also but I drink it on a regular basis and haven't seen any side effects from it either. I wonder if there are any scientific studies supporting the claim that diet soda has all those side effects or if people are just saying it?

Yes, not only that they are also very cancerous because of the chemicals that don't give body any healthy benefits, any nutrition. All the chemicals they have are only good to provide its drinkers the sensations that make the drinkers drink them and of course the test, but generally they are bad for the health. There are much more dangerous effects diet sodas and sodas have to give to the body. These are just few of countless.

I have drank a can of diet pepsi and it did not do anything to me. I still had the same bone density and my teeth felt the same with no damage what so ever. I think those are lies it does not affect me in that kind of way.

I've heard from a lot of people that diet soda works. Not necessarily that it's healthier than not drinking any soda, but it's definitely better than the normal ones. I usually drink diet soda, and so far I haven't experienced any of the issues I hear about at the gym.

I have not had issues either but I still drink a regular soda. I have a habit of drinking one soda a day unless we are out of sodas. Just have to limit yourself on how much soda to drink.

When I first started losing weight, almost four years ago, I switched everything that I drank to diet soda rather than the full calorie version, and I noticed a difference in myself immediately. But then, the more I though about it and the more things I read, the more I thought that I simply didn't want to be drinking that stuff anymore. So now, the only thing I will drink during the day is plain water, and I will have one cup of tea with my breakfast and then one in the evening a couple of hours before I go to bed.

I am average build not buff. I rarely drink diet soda so I cannot see how it would lead to tooth enamel or bone loss.
