A Dietitian’s Thoughts on Diet Sodas


Two weeks ago I wrote a post about the mistake we make when we think of some medicine or food as generally “good for you” or “bad for you” as opposed to having specific benefits and harms.  I started with an anecdote in which a friend asked me whether diet sodas or regular sodas were better for you.

Important legal mumbo jumbo:
Anything you read on the web should be used to supplement, not replace, your doctor’s advice.  Anything that I write is no exception.  I’m a doctor, but I’m not your doctor despite the fact that you read or comment on my posts.  Leaving a comment on a post is a wonderful way to enter into a discussion with other readers, but I will not respond to comments (just because of time constraints).
