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!!

I am not going to be so rigid that I never eat chocolate again, or pop/soda, or ice cream, nor any of the other food items I like. There are healthy alternatives such as a McDonald's ice cream cone, a piece of dark chocolate (I like Lindor Dark Chocolate truffles) and diet sodas. I will not stick to a diet, but making a lifestyle change I'll have a better chance of succeeding.
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!
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!
