Weight loss efforts may be in vain as it has been suggested that waistline reducing sodas may actually be making you fat. Experts are now saying the consumption of diet sodas may actually be having a reverse effect.
We now live in a world that is obsessed with image, social media platforms like Facebook and Instagram have put a whole new importance on the way people look with the growing ‘selfie’ culture, thus diet soda brands have capitalised on this.Life styles of 749 American people where studied by scientists at the University Of Texas over a period of five years. They watched the number of fizzy drinks each participant consumed and whether they were diet drinks or not.

The results were shocking to say the least. For those who drank one diet drink per day had gained at least three inches on their waistline. The study was conducted by three follow up visits with participants being interviewed at the beginning of the study, their waists were measured by circumference.

Those who didn’t consume diet fizzy drinks saw their waist circumference increase less than one inch over a nine-year period. The reports on occasional consumption, which was measured by drinking less than one diet soda a day, saw waist line circumference increase by two inches.

The Group that reported drinking diet sodas on a daily basis saw a massive increase of 3 inches a day on their waistline.

Previous studies have shown that there are dangers in increasing fat around the waistline – this has linked visceral fat, that builds up around the organs increasing inflammation and risks of diabetes, strokes, heart attack and even cancer.

Dr Fowler said: ‘Because the study measured waist circumference as well as total weight, we were able to look at what happened to participants’ abdominal obesity.‘The increases in abdominal fat were more than three times as great in daily diet soda users as in non-users.

‘This is during the very time in life when increasing waist circumference is associated with increased risk of these serious medical conditions, and mortality itself.

A new study was started by the researchers who adjusted statistically for a large number of variables which may have had an affect on the findings, this included waist size, exercise levels, diabetes and smoking. The results where consistent with the findings from studies of heart attacks, strokes and long term diabetes among daily diet soda users.

These results are consistent with findings from a number of other observational studies of increased long-term risk of diabetes, heart attack, stroke and other major medical problems among daily diet soda users.

Even when you adjust for those things, you have this independent effect of diet soda consumption on waist circumference change over time,’ senior author, Dr. Hazuda said.

The question is, why are these brands being marketed to us as a ‘diet’ product, when it clearly isn’t.

    Here is some Natural Healing information with Essential Oils – One of God’s gifts to man.

    Rosewood Oil: “Bois-de-Rose” Benefits

    Rosewood oil is extracted from Aniba rosaeodora, an evergreen tree that’s indigenous to Peru and Brazil. Rosewood, also called “bois-de-rose,” is a member of the Laurel (Lauraceae) plant family along with camphor, cinnamon, bay, and cassia. This aromatic tree can grow up to 40 meters high and is distinguishable by its reddish bark and yellow flowers. Many rosewood rainforests have been cut down to accommodate the high demand for this sturdy lumber, although legislation now requires planting a new rosewood in place of every tree that’s been cut down.

    Rosewood oil has a characteristic aroma that’s warm, spicy, woody, fruity, floral, and enlivening. This characteristic aroma makes it an established ingredient in high-class perfumery and soap-making, especially during the early 1900s, which caused deforestation of the tree.
