Hi all, I've just read this about diet soda on Yahoo health, I thought it might be of interest.

Get ready to ditch your soda habit. I’m kicking Diet Coke — it takes time, and I’m down to five a week from a high of 12, but it’s worth it.
Here’s why: Recent research has shown that artificial sweeteners in soda may interfere with your body’s ability to estimate how many calories you’ve ingested, so you eat more than you need.
In a new rat study, animals that ate fake sugar consumed more calories overall and gained weight, compared to those that didn’t eat artificially sweetened treats.
This is just one study, but it’s enough to make me want to kick the can habit. Need more convincing? For every diet soda you sip daily, your risk of becoming overweight can rise by 37 percent, according to researchers at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio.

We also know that regular soda is a total sugar bomb — most people I know gave it up long ago. At roughly 225 calories a pop, a 20-ounce bottle of regular soda packs nearly as many calories as a chocolate bar (but is much less satisfying).
Typically, soda also contains zero nutrients — so who needs it? Still have some soda around? Fine, stow it for guests who haven’t decided to quit. Next time you want a fizz hit, try seltzer with lime (or for a caffeine fix, green tea). What are your favorite low-cal soda substitutes?

I read this today to. Shocking isn't it!:eek:
I used to drink nothing but D.coke before I started on CD (I swear it's highly addictive) and I'm so glad it forced me to stop after reading this.


I will get to goal .....
Aren't our CD packs made with sweetener??!!! :eek:


I will get to goal .....
:eek: Blimey!!

It'll be full fat sugar for me once I'm done with packs then!!! Might be higher in cals etc but worth it long term!!!

I remarked weeks ago about the difference in the cupboards while I had been on CD and the one thing that had not gone and there was a build up of was Diet Coke...I used to drink gallons of the stuff
While I know I had a love of food and ate quite badly,I'm sure the Diet Coke stopped me burning fat productively

I thought I'd really miss it but I don't and to be fair I still have sweetner in coffee,but will slip back to sugar once I get to goal...I do remember hearing once that there is only something like 20 cal in one sugar in your coffee...so as long as you are not drinking loads..should not really hurt
