Recent findings suggest there is no link between weight gain and diet soda consumption, while other findings contradict that assessment.
This kind of conflicting information leaves thirsty dieters wondering what to wash down all that healthy food with.
And while it’s true that drinking diet soda may (or may not) have an effect (one way or the other) on weight, the bottom line remains: The best drink for everyone is good old H2O.
Sugary or not, carbonated beverages are so ubiquitous in our society that they’ve managed to all but edge out water as the beverage of choice for most people. Your workers may pass up the water cooler for the vending machine more than once a day.
Whether they’re choosing a diet soda or a can full of calories is arguably less important than how to convince them to go for the water instead (or at least more often).
Water does more than just quench thirst. It’s vital for hydration, making it an indispensable tool for exercisers. It promotes weight loss and can help people consume fewer calories overall, aids digestion, relieves fatigue, and generally improves health.
