I am losing weight rapidly now and the weight I need to lose is a direct result of the years of soda I drank. I could not get up and go without it. I had a hard time breaking my habit and even quit for over 2 yrs and then went back to it. Now I am officially soda free and will never go back because I know how easy it is to start all over. I started by finding something that was full of caffeine and sugar, for me it was sweet tea because I needed to have the same ingredients to help break it. It did not take long to break the need for soda all together. I talked to someone else who takes flavoring or lemon juice and adds it to regular soda water to save on calories but still drink the bubbles like a coke. Drinking just one a day is not enough because if you drink only 1 soda a day for a month, you will gain a pound every month. I was drinking more than a gallon a day everyday. Now I am paying for it.

Have him look into the fizzy waters and see if he can find one he likes. I am partial to the ocean spray diet cranberry juices. They are 10 cal and come in a can so they are portable and don't look much different than a can of soda if you are trying to blend in.

If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant. If it did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.

Have you tried sparkling waters? Instead cutting out coke completely, could your sons gradually cut down? Try to get down to one a day, then one every other day and keep cutting back. I used to use quite a bit of sugar and cream in my coffee and it helped me to gradually cut back until I was using just milk.

Have you tried adding lemon slices to water? There are recipes for spa water which give you combinations of different things to add to water.
