A British doctor has gone viral on social media after revealing that diet mixers make you intoxicated far faster than full-sugar options.
It’s got nothing to do with a diet mixer, but more to do with the fact that sugar in regular Coke makes your stomach empty more slowly into the small intestine, slowing down the absorption of alcohol into the bloodstream.
It’s the same principle as why you get drunk faster on an empty stomach because there’s nothing to slow down the booze…
Check out these Tik Tokers who put this theory to the test!
@lorynpowell How is this even possible? I tested whiskey with Diet Coke and Coke on 2 separate days to see if that theory going around is true. #dietcoke #whiskey #breathalyzer #cocktails #jackandcoke #science ♬ original sound – Loryn Powell
