Drinking one or more regular or diet colas every day doubles your risk of developing heart-damaging metabolic syndrome, which is closely linked to PCOS.
A new study shows that cutting out colas as part of a healthy diet to lose weight can also boost better control of classic metabolic syndrome/PCOS symptoms like high blood pressure, elevated insulin levels and excess fat around the waist, all of which increase the chances of heart disease and diabetes.
One culprit in colas could be the additive that gives the drink its caramel color. This additive upped the risk of metabolic syndrome in animal studies. Scientists also speculate that soda drinkers regularly expose their taste buds to natural or artificial sweeteners, conditioning themselves to prefer and crave sweeter foods.
Switch to tea if you need a caffeine hit or, if it’s fizz you’re after, try sparkling water with a splash of juice.
