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 like it.

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.
Agree with Becky on this one, moderation is okay and efter 7 years a occassional glass of cola or sprite is refreshing.. I would rather have this in my hand then someone passing me alcohol..

Recommendation for ALL diet beverages is...NO MORE than 32 ounces daily. It can easily fit with a moderation approach.

I drink water or tea (without sweeteners) the majority of the time and drink Coke Zero about 3 times a week.
It is totally worth it for me because I am trying everything with moderation.

35 mg of sodium is more then what water has in it so water is better for you to start with then something empty that you are giving your body that serves no good
I say forget the zero and just have the water instead
then again I'm against "diet" anything when it comes to drinks, NOT worth it on any level
