So I have an issue!!

I know I should give up my diet soda but it is just so darn hard to do. It is even harder for me because the bottle says right on it zero calories.

Any suggestions on how to do this?

Sometimes I am just so sick of water!!

    I have managed to give up pop. I started it this month, I just end up drinking water.

You can try the new pop out there that is sweetened with Stevia I know you can get it at Whole foods but I'm sure other places as well. They have a Dr pepper flavor. If I do find that I can drink pop again, and not go back to the addiction of it I will only drink those. I went cold turkey and drank caffeinated tea to keep the wean off caffeine. I don't drink coffee so it was the tea which I sweetened with Stevia of course.

Also, when I drink water, I drink room temp water, that way I can drink it easier and get more in. I don't care for cold water and the half a calorie one might lose for drinking cold water is not worth it.

    I can truly feel your pain. I love soda, but I just try to force myself to drink my water before I get thirsty and grab a Dr. Pepper (my weakness). I've also started using Crystal Light in my water sometimes, although the zero calorie powders still have artificial sweeteners, so not sure if that's much better. Anyway, good luck and hope you can find something that works for you.

    Thanks! I do have the crystal light ones I just need to get back into doing this instead I guess.

    I recommend the sugar free Hawaiian punch singles for water bottles they have. You can't even tell they are sugar free, and taste just like regular punch. When I get sick of water sometimes I just drink one of those, or the crystal lite ones aren't bad either. Hope this may help, emoticon
