Just recently read this article. It was very helpful. And from other articles that I have read before, caffine is so very not healthy. But it is in sodas and some teas. Since I started tracking my water; I realize that I am feeling better and full longer throughout the day. Diet sodas have sodium and after having 3 or 4 it adds up so I have backed off the sodas. When I want a "sweet" type drink - I go for the flavored tea bags with fruit flavors and make my own with splenda. No sodium, no calories, little or no caffine and very satifying. Herbal tea with fruit. If you need a caffine boost make it with a regular tea bag and you won't get as much, but remember to drink the water too. Sodas bad, herbal teas good.
