There are those few skinny folks out there that routinely prefer diet sodas to avoid the sugary versions, so obviously this weight gain effect does not affect everyone equally. There are a few more health concerns about diet sodas, other than the possibility of actually gaining weight. Several popular sweeteners were ultimately pulled from the market due to cancer risk. Many researchers still have concerns about how our bodies respond to artificial sweeteners.
