handing holding glass of carbonated liquid(BlackDoctor.org) — You know that soda, period, isn’t the best thing for you, but you just love it soooo much, right? So, it wouldn’t hurt to just drink diet soda, right?

Sorry, but according to new research, even diet drinks can make you fat.

During a recent meeting at the American Diabetes Association in San Diego, key experts explained that, per two new studies, diet soda can be detrimental not only to your waistline, but your overall health.

“Data from this and other prospective studies suggest that the promotion of diet sodas as healthy alternatives may be ill-advised” Dr. Helen Hazuda, professor of medicine at University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, said in a written statement. “They may be free of calories, but not of consequences.”

Consequences such as weight gain.
