People have gotten more conscious of their diet choices over the years, and have come to the realization that regular soft drinks contains high amounts of sugar and will cause them to become fat.

In fact, although it is stated to be significantly different from regular soda drinks, its effect is still nearly the same in real life! This is because it will still cause you to have cravings for processed foods high in carbohydrates and this way you will quickly gain weight.
