Diet soda is worse for you than even hfcs soda.
It triggers sweet cravings, upsets insulin levels (because at the sweet taste, the body reacts for sugar), and the sweeteners themselves are tough on excretory systems.

Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

Since February 2020, (remember before Covid?) I stopped soda completely, for a month. Now I’m one a week, the bottled coke from Mexico.
Water, tea, and kombucha does the rest of the time.

I love Diet Coke, but since tracking, I ensure I drink at least 64 oz of water a day before drinking any other liquid (other than coffee in the mornings). Normally, by the time I drink all my water, I'm not inclined to indulge in diet coke.

I might go through a 6 pack every 2 months or so. sometimes 3 months. Or if we go out to eat I may have a diet soda.

I quit drinking all pop about 7 years ago, except for a very occasional ginger ale once every few months. At the same time I gave up all artificial sweeteners. I believe that those were contributing to chronic gastrointestinal distress; my tummy is the happier for it.

As a teenager in the 70s, I had a serious relationship with Tab; as an adult, it was diet Mountain Dew. Now I drink mostly water & experiment with the wide world of tea.

Can't stand the stuff but it really hit home when for a school science project my daughter put one of her old baby teeth into a glass of diet cola and recorded the rapid and complete erosion of the tooth within 5 days! Gut and tooth rot to be sure!

I love Diet Coke, but stopped drinking this in April. Diet Hansens has several flavors (Root Beer is my favorite!), and also has no sodium or other ingredients that might not be the healthiest. I have seen these available in the cardiac rehab unit of our local hospital; must be fairly healthy.

Haven't had a diet soda since March 13th and I started self-isolating.
Interesting thing I've noticed is that my nails are stronger.
In the past month I've found Waterloo sparkling water. Watermelon flavor my fave. Yummm.

I had a terrible diet coke addiction for years. Ended up with pulmonary embolism in Sept. and my whole taste for diet coke went out the window!!!! Can't stand the taste anymore. I do drink a diet vernors or diet rootbeer a few times a week. Lots of ice tea!

I have had no diet soda in just over a year and a half. I was a total addict and drank 6-8 cans a day. It was very had to give up and I still crave it on occassion. I quit because it wasn't making me feel good. Also, when I was drinking it I tended to also eat unhealthy foods. I am far better off without it.

He surmised that it was something in the syrup they use to color the sodas that makes you gain weight. Remember a few decades ago when they made Clear Pepsi? Everyone rejected it but by this theory it would have been better for you. It tasted the same but people didn't like it.

@KINGDMSONG That's really interesting. I wonder why that is, that a particular kind of soda might be more problematic than others? One would think they're all pretty similar, so I find that fascinating.

I enjoy diet soda in moderation, but only caffeine-free, so usually 7-Up, ginger ale, or orange soda. I'm a much bigger fan of unsweetened tea. Got a whole cupboard full of all different types and flavors.

As you hold on... as long as you do what's in your heart... I believe you can do the right thing.

I had a Weight Loss Doctor that I went to for a few years (He was a cardiologist originally and then he transitioned and worked mostly with Dallas Cowboys football players) I had to stop going due to the cost but one of the rules was "You can't drink anything you can't see through" He had found that anyone who had lost weight always gained it back when they returned to drinking colas whether they were diet or not. 7up, Fresca, Sprite, unsweet ice tea were okay in limited amounts and of course he always recommended water above all. I have stuck by that for 20+ years and haven't regretted it. Once a year I do fit in a rootbeer but otherwise I don't miss cola at all. In fact, when I accidentally caught a sip of my sister's Dr Pepper (which was my go to in high school drinking 6+ a day!) I gagged. It was NASTY!
