    Default diet soda

    ok so i have heard for years how bad diet soda is and aspertame but well never really gave it much thought. well ive been really trying to be healthy this last year giving up that wheat stuff thats in everything and soy to. trying to exercise more and things like that but just couldnt give up my diet soda. yes i drink water but well i need some flavor when im eating im sorry i do. well on fb a few days ago there was another thing going around about diet soda and how bad it is and one thing caught my eye it makes you crave sweets. for the last many many months ive craved sweets and even started drinking more diet soda than normal. so i thought ok ill try just drinking regular soda and see what happens. yes i was worried bout weight gain as im on a diet and stuff but thought it was worth seeing about it. so did i notice a difference well yes i did. i find im much more calm and that im sleeping better and i was not so craving of the soda nor sweets and just generally feel better. ok so ive taken it a step further and switched to orange juice as well i was sick so seemed a good time to get off soda completely. well i must say that i do feel better and the things ive mentioned have continued so i think ill just give up diet soda completely and forever. i read whats in it and compared to regular soda its some nasty looking ingredients. now am i telling everyone to go buy regular soda well no but im just telling my story and people can get what they want out of it.

    I have never been a soda drinker, my son and I drink a lot of water, I drink about 6 bottles a day, and my son drinks about 10 bottles a day. My hubby is the Cokaholic, he drinks at least 6 or 7 cokes a day, and he also drinks coffee which he puts 6 Tsp of sugar in. He never eats fruits or vegetables, only a meat and potato guy, and he loves bread. I swear if I cut him open, he would bleed sugar. Lol. I've been trying to get him to cut down, and he has cut down his coke consumption a little, and he will drink water, but he's basically traded his come for Gatorade, which is also full of sugar.
    Today when we were out shopping, we saw the Soda Stream, it's a machine that uses tap water, and flavouring, and carbonates the water, making it dizzy. We tried the lemon/ lime and coke flavours, and they were pretty good, tasted refreshing, although, he said it didn't taste like real coke, but wasn't bad. I want to buy this machine. Does anyone else have a Soda Stream? And do you like it?

    I do my best to only have one soda a day. I try find the natural sodas like Hansen's and other lesser known brands that don't use all of the synthetic ingredients as aspertame gives me massive headaches. On the flip site I have a hard time passing up Dr. Pepper made with either real Imperial sugar or Sugar in the RAW when I can find it.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    I've tried so many times to stop my diet soda addiction. I think the longest I've gone is 9 months with no diet soda. I alternate between diet soda and this thing called Vitamin Water Zero which has more "natural" ingredients in it. I drink a lot of water, black/green tea, and yes...diet soda still. Old habits are hard to break.

    I'm not a huge soda drinker, and our water taste like crap, we live on base in NC, camp lejeune, "bad water misery here" However I bought a water cooler and the family is gulping it down, usually every three days I have to change out the water jug, for a family of three. I do nothing but drink that water I cook with the tap water. However I go thru a phase every so often which I crave soda!! I've heard the soda stream soda's are better for you but I still think its soda......

    I stopped on the soda's... the only time I will have one is if we go to the movies which isn't very often. It's a VERY hard habit to break, and the diet has so much crap in it!!! Good for you Sandra...
