    Hiya guys, just wanted a bit of advice. Has been drinking lots of diet fizzy drinks and although they're free, just wondering whether you find that they reduce rate of speed loss or not? I'm finding myself having a diet coke as a reward instead of grabbing naughty treats. And feel it makes me bloat. what do you all think? xx

    I drink around 4 cans of pepsi max a day, but I have always drunk pepsi max so guess I'm used to it and dont notice any bloating

    :sigh: Unfortunately my nearest asda is 40 miles away which is a bit of a bummer, but do Tesco/Sainsbury's do their own brand?

    My dentist has warned both myself and my sister about drinking too much fizzy drinks. Apparently even the diet ones can hurt your teeth (the enamel). I've cut back to one can of diet coke a day, and my sister drinks diet coke though a straw. We were both gutted as we love diet coke! Thought I would share...

    Iv never been a big drinker of fizzy pop, so dont have that much of it, unless its mixed with vodka lol... But I did once read someware on hear that the citric(?) acid or whatever the acid is called which makes the fizz can cause some people to retain water. So whilst it doesnt cause you to gain weight, it might affect the scales abit? Im sure someone will come along to clarify what i mean lol

    We're addicted to the Tesco sugar free Limeade, Orangeade and Diet Ginger Beer in our house. They are often in the 3 for 2 offers.

    I swear, the Limeade is habit-forming. There's never any in stock!

    I have started drinking cherryaid - feels like a treat (well it does to me when I am really struggling to be good) I never used to like it but I guess my tastebuds have changed.
