I have been a long time Diet Coke/Pepsi drinker but have been slowly changing o drinking more water. I find the diet drinks don't quench my thirst like water does but I haven't noticed any connection to hunger. I'll have to be more aware and see

As long as your heart is still beating, it's never too late to start again.

I do not use any diet drinks because they leave an after taste in the back of my throat. I used to drink lots of fruit juices. Now I drink water with lemon in it. even when I go to a restaurant, i ask for water with lemon.

Not hungry so much, but I have noticed that they don't quench my thirst at all. I feel better if I drink water or decaf iced tea.

I have never been a diet soda drinker but, a regular pepsi drinker most of my life. Now, I have drank other things besides soda. But, I drink sodas most of the time and I am finding it hard to give up. I was thinking about going to diet. I bought a soda stream so I can make my own sodas. That way I still get the carbonation and can limit the bad things that go into it. I am also drinking more water than I used to.

I'm here for me and no one else but me. However, it will be everyone who will benefit from a better me. And, I love them the same.

And the spirit fills the darkness of the heavens

It fills the endless yearning of the soul

It lives within a star too far to dream of

It lives within each part and is the whole

It's the fire and the wings that fly us home

Fly us home, fly us home

I am not a soda drinker, every now and then I will have one. Today with my lunch I bought a lemon-lime type bottle of diet soda, I had a few sips with my lunch and & took the bottle back to the office with me. I started sipping the soda in the afternoon and by 2 pm I was very aware that I had this low grade continuous hunger. I don't know why but I felt the connection between the hunger and the soda. So I googled it and found out that yes people do feel hunger when drinking diet sodas. I had no idea and when I shared this with my co-workers their mouths dropped, they were just as surprised as I was. If you are a diet soda drinker you might want to pay attention next time you have one....it could be having the same affect on you.
