have you ever wondered Is Diet Coke bad for your health? There’s a lot of misinformation out there when it comes to diet soda, particularly surrounding whether or not they’re safe to consume.
💩 So let’s #CutTheBS on this once and for all.
🚫 Diet soda isn’t harmful.
🧋 A lot of people don’t trust these drinks because they contain low-calorie sweeteners (LCS). One particular LCS that has been given a bad rep is Aspartame.
🙅♀️ Aspartame is constantly peddled as being harmful to your health – but this just isn’t true.
📚 Numerous studies have shown that consumption of aspartame in the quantities used in diet sodas is completely fine for human consumption.
📉 In fact, diet soda has been shown to be beneficial for weight loss by decreasing the desire for sweet foods. (DOI: 10.1016/j.appet.2020.104631)
Don’t get me wrong, water is always the best option, but having a diet fizzy drink every so often isn’t going to harm you.

✅ I get asked all the time if Diet Coke is safe to drink, and the answer is yes.
😤 This guy blames Aspartame, a low-calorie sweetener (LCS) used in Diet Coke, for it being supposedly unsafe – but there’s no research to show it has any serious adverse effects.
📚 Studies have shown that LCS in diet drinks are beneficial for weight loss. “LCS drinks acutely decreases desire for sweet foods, which support their use in place of sugar-sweetened drinks.” (doi: 10.1016/j.appet.2020.104631)
😔 Aspartame can impact your mood though. So if you’re prone to low moods, it’s best to keep consumption to a minimum.
Here are some other myths that don’t hold up: ⤵️
❎ LCS do NOT spike insulin or glucose levels (doi: 10.1093/acjn/nqaa167)
❎ LCS do NOT increase the risk of cancer (doi: 10.1002/fsn3.2395)
❎ LCS do NOT damage gut microbiome (doi: 10.3390/nu12113408)
🦷 The acidity of diet sodas CAN affect your dental health, but this is the same for non-diet sodas.
💧 We always suggest drinking water to stay hydrated, but sometimes you might need something sweeter, in which case we fully support you drinking Diet Coke.
