Do you enjoy a can or two of Pepsi during the day? You are not alone. Dozens of people crave and can down several cans in no time. More recently, various campaigns subtlety started to encourage people to dramatically decrease consumption of Pepsi or even give it up altogether. Here are all nasty side effects of your favorite soft drink.
Pepsi helps to gain weight
Drinking regular Pepsi causes gaining weight. No shock there, but the areas of the fat build up should give you pause. Researchers found that people who drink diet Pepsi have a 75 percent increase in waist circumference over the ten years study, compared with those who do not drink any kind of Pepsi. Those who drink more than 2 diet ones per day see a 400 percent waist expansion. It is the aspartame that raises blood glucose levels and causes the weight gain. When the liver finds too much glucose, the extra one is converted to body fat.
