  • Obese people who drink diet pop as their go to beverage consume more daily calories than obese people who drink sugary pop.
  • Those with a normal weight don’t gain weight from drinking diet pops.
  • The reason  is that artificial sweeteners change how regular sweets are processed in the reward centre of the brain of the obese not in those with normal weights.
