I do not drink pop, diet or otherwise, except on the rarest of occasions. I used to drink diet pop, and then somehow I got sick of it. I don't like the taste anymore.

I carry a water bottle and crystal light drink sticks instead. I also use a bit more water than the directions call for, so it's diluted a little more.

I always thought pop and weight gain was a no-brainer. Regular pop is loaded with sugar.

Interesting article regarding the effects of drinking soda. On the campus I attend, there are at least 2 pop machines on every floor in all the buildings. I know it was easy for me to grab a pop from the pop machine during breaks to grab a pop to drink so that the caffeine would help keep me awake during class.

This article doesn't really mention the effects of diet soda, but I have read other studies that say diet soda does have some effects due to the artificial sweetners they contain.

I have tried quitting drinking pop twice. The first time was about 3 years ago, and I lost 5 pounds in the first two weeks without making any other changes, and I had only been drinking diet pop. This time, I have been pop free since July, and I can really tell a difference in my body from not drinking it.

How much soda do you drink in a day or a week? Do you usually grab one during a break in class?
