Diet Drinks

Do you drink diet soda?

I like diet Dr. Pepper and diet Pepsi. Lately, I only have it as a treat once or twice a month. I cut way back on them because of all the issues with imitation sweeteners.

I used to drink a lot of fizzy pop, particularly pepsi max! I rarely drink it now, it really bloats me, so I tend to only drink it if I'm using it as a mixer. And because of how little I drink it, I go for full fat, the aspartame thing worries me quite a bit, so I figure the odd regular one's better than loads of diet ones!

I used to be a faithful fan of diet drinks, then I read that they can make people fatter! Experiments show that sometimes choosing the zero calorie option tricks dieters into thinking they are being saintly, leading to a higher than average calorie intake for the day.

I very rarely drink them nowadays as they bloat me up so much it gives me sharp pains in my stomach.

I drink Cherry Pepsi Max quite a bit Apart from the aspartame thing (which I've read about but but can't get my head around) is there anything wrong with diet pop?

I think it's more just all the artificial stuff in it, but then all fizzy pop is full of additives and whatnot

The problem that I have with regular drinks is that they use a lot of corn syrup and that stuff is horrible for people.

I can also relate to what everyone has said about the carbonation. It upsets my stomach too. Sometimes I shake it up and let the bubbles go out of it before I drink it.

I've been making green tea and adding some lemon and putting that over ice for my meal time beverage.
