Can diet coke make you retain water weight

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I have been eating correctly and exercising but my weight was up today. I don't drink diet coke much anymore but last night I had 3 of them. A 12 pack will last me for weeks. Back to drinking water.

  I was a diet-coke junkie--- about six per day! I kicked the habit, and I feel better....

    Yes it can. I am currently studying nutrition and its due to the apastarme that is in it. I would reduce it to one can a week or get rid of it completely x

    I've cut way back on diet soda without actually eliminating it. Lately I'm drinking a lot of hot drinks thanks to the weather. Keep on sparking!

    I think the chemicals in diet coke could cause some people to retain water. I am a diet soda fan from way back but feel better when I did not drink them. I can go for months without one. Then, a craving hits and I have one and really notice how it effects me.

    I'd loved to know if this is true! I've had the same experience.
