I will admit that I am addicted to Coca-Cola. Diet Coke tastes DISGUSTING to me and Coke Zero is a little better, but still tastes weird to me. Recently, I discovered Diet Dr. Pepper. It is really good and doesn't taste diet-y at all! It really helps take the edge off my soda cravings and I don't have to worry about calories at all!

Take home-made smoothies on the go to stop drinking soda
I used to be a soda addict. Now, I prefer fresh juices and smoothies to anything else! They are so much healthier, frutier, and don't have any of the nasty sugar and acid from soda. I used to go to vending machines all the time, but now, I take it in insulated water bottles(that keep my smoothie COLD and don't even sweat on humid days!). They are the perfect size to carry around, and fit nicely in a backpack or purse(for the ladies) 41
I love freezing pieces of fruit and then making random combinations for interesting smoothies. Just remember to add a base of regular cold fruit juice(like apple, orange, cranberry, etc)

I am a soda addict...It was hard to give them up. To help I switched to chocolate milk. I have low vitamin D. Drinking milk help with the absorption of vitamin D supplements. I don't seem to be craving soda's now. 224
Diet soda is nothing but trouble, especially for those of us who become addicted. 234
If you quit drinking diet soda and replace it with water and/or tea with no artificial sweetener, you will be amazed at how much easier it is to stick to your diet plan. I lost 5 pounds of bloating the first week I quit diet soda. I was drinking anywhere from 3 to 10 cans of soda a day. Not good!
