Started drinking diet soda to lose weight. I lost 30 pounds and now I'm not dieting anymore, but I still drink diet soda. Regular soda is just too sweet to me now, plus all the refined sugar and carbs in them is ridiculous.

I drink my rum with diet dr pepper, as my friend said the sugar in pop gives you hangovers, but i never looked into it but it still tastes pretty good.

I don't drink diet regularly though, i think it always tastes a lot worse, well at least for most of hte ones i usually drink like colas or even root beers.

If its soda I will try and stick to Diet Pepsi or Diet Dr Pepper. But then the Mountain Dew calls my name and I submit to its seduction

Men be careful, female sexual predators are using a date rape drug called a Blowjob to trap men into scams called relationships.

I rarely drink any kind of soda, but the two kinds I drink on occasion are Nestea Zero and Coke Zero, because both taste better then their sugar-filled alternatives.

Show me a study linking diet soda consumption to cancer. It doesn't exist, Striker. The only link to cancer (or brain tumors) is in rats- not humans- being dosed per body mass thousands of times the amount humans consume in a diet soda. I won't argue that water + tea is healthier and probably less hazardous than also consuming diet soda, but this brand of alarmism is unfounded and has no empirical basis.

Diet Soda – Is it Bad For You and Can it Cause Weight Gain?

Not the thing I saw but I just pulled this up from google.

Another thing though, US Coca Cola is disgusting. Like, so much so I won't ever drink it again. Good thing we have wonderful sugar Coke in Europe and not that sweetened crap you guys get.

Has anyone else drank sugared coke? Mexican/European or whatever?
Pure sugarcane Coca-Cola is still the standard everywhere else but here. Corn has a chokehold on our sweetener industry. It's just so cheap. And Americans have the worst palates of any people on earth. We don't care if something is well-made; we just want huge, cheap portions.

Nevertheless, it's a myth that diet soda causes weight gain. Excess calories cause weight gain. The problem is that long-term intake of artificial sweeteners tends to increase the craving for more sweet foods:
Gain weight by “going diet?” Artificial sweeteners and the neurobiology of sugar cravings
If you can exercise self-control in relation to your diet, then drinking diet soda is irrefutably better for maintaining a better overall calorie profile. I abhor the notion that "drinking regular soda" is better than drinking diet soda. It's pure sugar in liquid: the only way to make this solution a greater enemy to your midsection would be to add some easily drinkable fat to the mixture (like coconut oil).

If you don't want to exercise discipline, then it's obviously best to drink neither regular nor diet soda.

Regular. It tastes better.

But, regular mostly because I don't have a vagina.

Diet soda contains Aspartame, which is proven to cause cancer and make you hungier..

The only people that are fucking retarded enough to drink this shit seem to be Americans.

Even more to the point, all soda is just High Fructose Corn Syrup in a can. Drink that shit and get fat. Simple as that. Cut it out and drink water instead and get skinny. Not rocket science.
