If you are having difficulty getting over regular soda and want to switch to diet soda but can't stomach the flavor try filling most of your glass with diet and topping it off with the real stuff. It gives it the flavor of regular but for a fraction of the calories.
If you are at a fast food place and really really want the root beer ...fill up most of it with diet Coke (or Pepsi) and top it off with the root beer. It will taste exactly like root beer and again for a fraction of the calories.

I love soda. Sometimes i have periods where i don't drink soda then i do again. So how i always stop is to make a huge glass of water, then take a soda and at a meal, for every sip of soda i have i have a bigger drink of water. That gets me at the point where i stop drinking soda. 30
I love sodas, but know that they are not good for us since they have no nutrients whatsoever. I drink at least 1 a day, but no more than 2. When I drink a soda, I drink as much water as was ounces of soda behind.
I'll admit it... I love soda. However, I've replaced it now with Club Soda to which I add a single pack of Cystral Light... yummy! My favorite flavors are the Grapefruit and the Lemon/Lime. This way I get my fizz fix!
