Drinking diet soda while trying to conceive

If you want to do only one thing that can change your fertility for the better, stop drinking soda!
While this particular topic is debated in the medical field, soda is actually a very highly acidic beverage.

I’m a major diet soda drinker and personally feel it had some affect on the growth of a fibroid I have. At some level, scientists believe, the brain can distinguish between calorie-free sweetener and regular sugar but in those that drink diet soda at least once a day, new tests showed that the brain became confused and could no longer tell the difference.


The tests that found these aberrations in 'reward activation' areas of the brain were conducted by Erin Green and Claire Murphy of the University of California, San Diego, and San Diego State University scientists.24 healthy young adults were subjected to a series of brain imagining tests while being given small doses of saccharin and sugar-sweetened water and asked to rate the tastes. I’ve been trying to stop drinking sodas and after week and a half of doing great, I gave in!!!
Half of the participants were frequent consumers of diet soda and half claimed they hardly ever indulged in the fizzy drinks but both reported back with enjoyable experiences of flavour. The results, that will be published in an upcoming issue of Physiology & Behavior, showed that as diet soda drinkers consumed the saccharin-sweetened water, the activation of an area that deals with food motivation diminished.
Just a couple days after I stopped drinking it, I had no issues what so ever!) Further, when aspartame is stored for long periods of time or kept in warm areas it changes to methanol, and alcohol that converts to formaldehyde and formic acid, which are known carcinogens.


After experiencing major numbness in my hands and feet I decided it couldn’t be doing anything good to my body and I quit drinking it cold turkey. While difficult to deal with the withdrawal headaches and the caffeine and sugar cravings, I found myself feeling much better than I had in months. And personally, if I find a craving for something sweet and bubbly to much to handle, I’ll splurge on an organic soda from the health food store.
