    When im on a diet i become addicted to diet coke!, i dont usually drink juice or anything like that when im off a diet just water, ive noticed that ive been getting cistious alot and my skins gone quite bad, do you think its because of the diet coke? i might go back to drinking only water but i LOVE diet coke!

    Well sodas increase cellutite and are bloating (even the diet ones). I drink a cup of soda once every other month on social events or so... Other than that only water, orange juice and soy/rice/oat milk.

    Trust me it's worth to give up of diet coke or at least reduce it to a can per week for special events. As the times goes on you'll miss diet coke less and less;)

    I drink quite a lot of diet coke to be fair but honestly it hasn't really done me any harm. Just try and balance it out with water and it should be fine! Not so great for the teeth though! :D

    We were told in class a few weeks ago that there is something in diet drinks that SLOWS DOWN THE MOTABOLISM!!! but if u were drinkin 2 or 3 glasses/cans a week it wouldn't really do damage!!! Don't think you have to give it up, but definately cut way back on it xxxxx

    i wonder how many cups of green tea you should eat a day to help with weight loss though!!! I've had 3 cups this morning and might have another one before work and one in work which is 5!!! Haven't had that many every day but am trying to drink as much as i can!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I drink far too much diet coke, even pre dieting. Now I drink 2L of water before I let myself have any diet coke.
    The water has helped my skin a lot, dry patches on my face are actually clearing up with regular water intake, its like diiiing my moisturizer suddenly works lol
    Altho this week will be a nightmareish week for diet coke. thats my stop-smoking craving filler instead of food :D
    What we do to ourselves eh :p

    Do you think there are any sort of green tea substitutes out there that do the same kinda thing? Cos I don't drink hot drinks. Tea just really isn't my thing :(
