If you just can't shake your diet coke habit for good (we all have our vices), swap today's can for all-natural sparkling water. A recent National Institute of Health study found that daily diet soda drinkers may be at increased risk of suffering from strokes and heart attacks, Sass says. And when it comes to weight loss, research shows that drinking diet soda may be even more detrimental than downing the regular stuff.
“In my private practice, I’ve had many clients worry that giving up diet soda was going to lead to weight gain, but actually the opposite was true. Once they kicked the habit, they reported fewer cravings for sweets, and a heightened ability to tune in to hunger and fullness cues. And the additional water they start drinking often led to other benefits, like more energy and glowing skin.”
Your action plan: Sip on sparkling water flavored with a splash of fruit or lime juice. You'll still get the carbonation but without so many chemicals. One of Sass's all-time favorites is Grapefruit La Croix. "I keep my fridge stocked," she says.
