2 Your Health: Cutting Diet Soda May Not Trigger Weight Loss, Says Study

Updated:

A new study shows cutting out diet soda may not help you lose weight.

The research was paid for by the American Beverage Association.

Researchers looked at people who wanted to lose a few pounds. They split them into two groups: One group kept drinking diet soda, the other cut it out.

The study found that the people who kept drinking the diet soda lost more weight.

Some experts say that may be because the people who stopped drinking their favorite sodas had a tougher time on a diet because they already were giving something up.

New research shows a low-carb, vegan diet is better at reducing heart disease than a high-carb, low-fat diet.

Researchers say people on the low-carb, vegan diet, also called the Eco-Atkins Diet, saw their heart disease risk drop ten percent over ten years.

They also lost more weight and saw their cholesterol improve more than people on a high-carb, low-fat diet.

Researchers say the Eco-Atkins Diet includes protein sources like gluten, soy and nuts, and fats from vegetable oils.

The research comes from St. Michael's Hospital in Toronto.
