In a study conducted by the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio, people who drank two or more diet sodas a day had waist sizes that were six times bigger than those who didn’t. The 470-plus participants were observed for about a decade. Also, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, alcohol is fat-sparing. The body will burn the calories from booze first before it burns any fat.
