I very rarely have diet soda, or any soda. I tend to feel heavier and "bloated" and just basically uncomfortable.

I have really cut down on my diet soda intake. I love me some Coke Zero - but I know the carbonation and the artificial sweetener is not good for me. I have been trying to drink more flavored waters because unless it is ice cold, I can't seem to down the water. I am also diabetic so I can't do much of the real sugar stuff anyway. As for coffee, I have gotten where I only drink 1 cup a day and sometimes don't even drink it all.

Never, Ever Give Up.

There is a soda out that only has four ingredients and it's called, "Dry" it's in the health food section. I like Dry Vanilla Bean -- and get this 60 calories. Real sugar, no weird HFCS or Aspertame. All natural, nicely carbonated and I don't down it like I do a Coke. Coke I can finish off in a heartbeat. Dry is a nice treat once in awhile and I usually don't even finish the bottle.

Good stuff!!! http://www.drysoda.com/flavor-vanilla-bean

Just read someone blog about diet sodas, and she said it messes with your adrenal glands, and also gives false information to your (is it your pancreas?) or what ever takes care of your sugars breakdown, making your body think the aspartame is really sugar and so it reacts to it and could lead to diabetes. Forgive me if I got it a little mixed up but its something like that.

I have stopped drinking soda on and off but I need to make a firm commitment to staying off it. I should do it for coffee as well but with summer almost here and the blueberry flavored coffee being out, it's pretty hard....lol. emoticon

cutting down is definitely a good idea. I recently gave up coffee and one would think that I am evil now because of it. I find myself getting diet dr pepper now 1/2 can/day but still. I do drink alot of flavored water, it seems to be easier than just straight water.

My husband absolutely has to have diet pepsi in the house or he freaks out. He can easily lose 100 pounds if he wanted all while drinking diet soda. Me however, I feel like it entices my taste buds to have even more food! I still like having my pepsi though, but I do agree on cutting down.

Now how to get my hubby to cut down so we don't have so spend so much money on pepsi? Hmmm!

Soda period is bad for you...however I am not saying I do not drink soda and I prefer regular soda over diet...diet soda is even worse than regular. If you want to kick the soda habit kick it altogether if not just don´t drink so much of it... I used to drink five or six glasses a day even more at times. just slow down and don´t drink so much one or two a day and not 1 liters either!

Giving up diet sodas was one of my goals and for a time I did really well. But now I am drinking them again. I just like the "bite" of that first drink. I have noticed that certain brands seem to make me want to eat more. So for now I am drinking the clear ones.

I went cold turkey off of soda for Lent in 2008. I'm not even Catholic, but I decided to give up something that year anyway LOL. I can honestly say that now I am not addicted to soda any longer and can occasionally drink one! Good luck!

I've been addicted to diet cola for years. I'm a caffeine addict who doesn't like coffee - go figure.

I'm not worried about the caffeine right now, but I do want to try to get away from having so much of the artificial sweeteners. So I'm trying again to kick the habit. Not going cold turkey - that has never worked for me in the past. For now, I've committed to cutting down to 3 diet cokes or less per day (since I started tracking, I've actually kept it down to 2, so that's even better). I'm drinking more plain water, flavored seltzer (the kind with no artificial sweeteners) and tea instead of the large quantities of diet coke I used to drink. As I get used to the change, I'll cut down even more and eventually try not to drink it at all.

I drank pop for years. Lots and lots of it. A few months ago I gave it up and started drinking the flavored waters. They still have artificial sweetner in them, but they do not have acid in them that kills your teeth like pop. and no caffine.

yeah, I've read this. soda of anykind really isn't healthy. It sucks becuase I find it hard to just drink water. i am going to buy those to go packs with tea and such to see if that will work. goodbye diet pepsi.

Okay, from the soda topic I've noticed lots of you drink diet soda thinking you're safe from calories and weight gain. I've never been a fan of diet soda because of the effects the aspartame can cause, but here's an interesting article linking drinking diet soda to weight gain. I guess we just shouldn't drink any kind of soda! Have a look!
