3 doctors agree

In brief: Don't have

Any effect. It's the calories that control whether you gain or lose weight, not the carbonation.

Diet soft drinks (no calories) have also been correlated with weight gain and increased risk for metabolic syndrome. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23850261 I agree that carbonation is not the likely issue, but calories alone do not explain the findings either. Just as worrisome is the study showing increased risk for vascular events in people who drink artificially sweetened drinks daily. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/22282311
