Sounds easy, but it worked for me. Before I joined SP, I substituted diet cola for my 3-4 regular colas per day and lost 10 pounds after 3 months without changing anything else in my routine. Not only did I begin NOT to crave regular cola anymore, my sweet tooth diminished TREMENDOUSLY. I used to LOVE colas (and had a sweet tooth), so this was a baby step to eliminate regular colas entirely from my diet, and limit diet soda to less than one a day. Now it's mainly unsweet hottea for me!

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!
I love my cola, but it's so bad for me. I discovered the way to keep myself away from soda is whitening my teeth. After using teeth whitening strips I don't want to stain my teeth again with cola, just one more reason to stay away from it.
Beware of Diet Soda! I find that Diet Cola and other diet sodas give me the munchies. It's because of the artificial sweeteners (like aspartame) in them! Also, they tend to give you a bloated stomach and help you hang onto belly fat. Try eliminating them and you'll FEEL and LOOK so much better. I was drinking 5 cans of diet cola a day and now I am down to NONE. One little change - and I'm saving money too because diet soda is expensive and WATER is free!! 30
