How Diet Soda Could Affect Your Weight

When you want to lose weight, you may think that switching from regular soda to diet is a good way to cut calories, but studies show that diet soda can actually be just as dangerous to your waistline. Watch this video to find out why diet soda may be off the menu as part of your gastric sleeve diet or any weight lost plan.

Research indicates that the artificial sweeteners in diet soda stimulate the hunger hormone ghrelin causing you to want to eat more. This increased caloric intake is one reason doctors believe diet soda could lead to weight gain.

At Bariatric Care Centers, we can help you finally win your battle with your weight with weight loss procedures including sleeve gastrectomy and gastric bypass surgery. Find out more about weight loss surgery in Houston by calling (713) 339-1353.
