Don’t drink Diet Drinks! The message that we should all dramatically reduce our sugar consumption is really gaining traction and for good reason. This was a central theme of Grain Brain, a book by Dr. David Perlmutter where he expands on this and these ideas have certainly been validated since the book was published back in 2013.
Unfortunately, as people have learned about the threats of sugar consumption, soft drink manufacturers have decided to emphasise sugar-free beverages, sweetened with artificial sweeteners, as a “healthy” alternative. To be clear, nothing is further from the truth.
