Though I've pretty much given up on drinking sodas/pop, sometimes there's just this craving for something fizzy with flavor. Rather than grabbing a soda, I have sparkling water (or club soda), and put in about a tbsp of whatever flavoring I want. I use the syrups they have for making coffee with, and there's a wide variety. The sugar free are even better. 0 cals and still delish. Great way to get your soda-fix
Just don't drink it! Diet or Regular it is just nasty and a bad habit. I challenge soda drinkers to write down the ingredients and then research what they are and what they do to your body. One key point I want to make is Diet is not better for you than regular. Diet soda is just as likely to cause health issues, like diabetes, as regular soda. Educate yourself!
When I feel like I want to sip on a cool summer cocktail but I don't want the calories and alcohol, I mix a crystal light packet with club soda. It sparkles, is fun to drink, and feels like a summer beverage without all of the calories.
