Diet drinks we take to lose weight actually actively PREVENT weight-loss due to chemicals that disrupt metabolism

New research shows a common sweetener in diet sodas - aspartame - disrupts metabolism

Diet sodas prevent you from losing weight, a new study claims.
Low-calorie versions of sugary drinks attract millions of people looking to shed a few pounds.
But according to research by Massachusetts General Hospital, all those good intentions are derailed by the sweetener aspartame, which disrupts metabolism.
In fact, they found that aspartame can actually make one gain weight instead.
Testing in mice, they found aspartame contains a product called phenylalanine which

disrupts an enzyme, similarly to a condition seen in people with type 2 diabetes or heart disease.
The enzyme is key to preventing metabolic disorders.

The researchers also found that mice with aspartame in their drinking water gained more weight and developed more issues with metabolism than those that didn't. 
'Sugar substitutes like aspartame are designed to promote weight loss and decrease the incidence of metabolic syndrome, but a number of clinical and epidemiologic studies have suggested that these products don't work very well and may actually make things worse,' the report's senior author Dr Richard Hodin said. 
'We found that aspartame blocks a gut enzyme called intestinal alkaline phosphatase (IAP) that we previously showed can prevent obesity, diabetes and metabolic syndrome.
'So we think that aspartame might not work because, even as it is substituting for sugar, it blocks the beneficial aspects of IAP.'
