Rule No. 9: Steer clear of diet drinksDiet soda seems like a better option than regular, doesn't it? All the sweetness with none of the calories? Too bad it doesn't really work like that. Koff explains why:
"If you drink a Diet Coke and get all that sweet in your mouth -- but your body doesn't get any energy from it -- you've signaled your body that nutrients are coming, but then you don't deliver," says Koff. "Then you wonder how you ended up stopping and buying a small pizza for yourself two hours later."
If you're thirsty, get something that tastes a little sweet, gives you some nutrients, but doesn't break the calorie bank. Coconut water is a great option, as is the FRS drink mentioned earlier.
