ok, so soda isn't good for you, but according a trainer/nutritionist I had at 24 Hr Fitness if I'm going to drink it, Sprite Zero is the least unhealthy of any soda pops. And, it tastes great, I don't know I'm drinking a diet soda. It's hard to find, that's my only complaint.
I don't drink (or eat) artificial sweeteners because they trigger me to binge on real sugar. Carbonation also adds some bloat and sodium. I also heard that something in the carbonation can hurt bones, but I don't know if that is a reputable source. Also, I'm trying to ''clean up'' what I eat and kicking out fake stuff, preservatives too.
Best of luck to you in finding what is right for you!

I like it and have some right now because I'm not a huge plain water drinker either.

I lost my taste for soda (diet) a few years back and love drinking ice cold spring water. (Tap or city water tastes awful to me because we are on a well.)
However, for some reason when I have pasta and sauce, I need a diet root bear. I think that is because I love spicy food and add quite a bit of red pepper flakes in my pasta.
If you are not a water drinker, I dont see the harm in having an diet sprite every once in a while. But I would definately limit myself to no more than 2 cans a day.
Just to many chemicals that cant possibly be good for you in excess.
