Diet drinks can lead to other poor food choices

Many people consume diet drinks on a daily basis, but according to one local doctor, too many diet drinks can mean poor choices when it comes to other foods, and that can result in serious health issues. Aggarwal said a poor diet and too many diet drinks can result in a high risk for heart disease. She said many people think diet drinks make up for other poor food choices.

If you continue to eat sweet things, you are not really changing the person. A lot of people will still have the desire to have sweet things and will continue to have a poor diet. A lot of times, it’s just perpetuating a problem,” Aggarwal said.
