A University of Texas study found that drinking diet pop does not help you lose weight.  They followed 474 people over 9 and 1/2 years and while everyone gained weight, diet soda pop drinkers’ waistlines increased a whopping 70% more than non-diet soda pop slurpers.  Those who drank two or more diet pops a day saw their waists expand at five times the rate of non-drinkers.  Researchers believe artificial sweetners may “trick the brain” and that people might be better off just drinking full-calorie pop in moderation instead.  

- Now all we have to do is teach every American the definition of the word “Moderation”. 

- The problem isn’t the diet pop you order, it’s the six words that usually follow it:  “Do You Want Fries With That?” 

- It’s true!  Fashion models are known to do regular “coke” all the time and they’re thin as rails!
