Mock26: It tastes horrible! That is reason enough for me.
Spanky_McFarksalot: I lost a good 10 pounds switching from regular to diet mt. dew.so I'm thinking the weight gain part of the study i people thinking "hey I had a diet soda, I think I can 5 more cheeseburgers and fries"

poot_rootbeer: Drink black coffee like a man.
Nogale: That having been said, Diet Dr. Pepper is the most normal-tasting diet soda on the market, IMHO. For a while I stuck with Zero Coke but it gave me the runs.
TNel: That whole article is just bs crap.#1. No proof but it might be the cause#2. "Whether that link is attributed to an ingredient in diet soda or the drinkers' eating habits is unclear. But is that one can really worth it?" So it's not the drinks fault but the persons.#3. "That means people who consume diet foods might be more likely to overeat, because your body is being tricked into thinking it's eating sugar, and you crave more." Again same thing not the drinks fault.#4. Get drunk faster... I'm in!!!!#5. As per the article they don't use that ingrediant anymore and the new one in pure form (not mixed) is an irritant.. Who cares I'm not mixing it myself#6. Pepsi is 2.46 which is MORE acidic than diet pepsi#7. "Sometimes, the vessel for your beverage is just as harmful. Diet or not, soft drink cans are coated with the endocrine disruptor bisphenol A (BPA), which has been linked to everything from heart disease to obesity to reproductive problems. That's a lot of risktaking for one can of pop." WTF is this crapWow that was someone that likes normal soft drinks and wanted to try and justify why Diet ones are bad. Don't get into the positives just look at rumored negatives.
ProfessorOhki: Downing just two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500%You know, I'm sure diet soda isn't healthy, but this seems like either misinterpretation of numbers or complete bullshiat. Drinking two cans of diet soda a day is not going to make a 30" waste a 180" waist.
Spanky_McFarksalot: poot_rootbeer: Drink black coffee like a man.I do, strong Vietnamese coffee.[i269.photobucket.com image 639x557] Like a boss
Cheese eating surrender monkey: You really wanna drink coffee like a boss? Buy yourself a cezve and brew Turkish style.
jaybeezey: Mock26: It tastes horrible! That is reason enough for me.Have you had a Sprite Zero, it's far better than regular Sprite.
Nmissi: Then a couple years ago, I tripped over mexican cokes in the store, and went, "hey, glass bottles!" Bought one, and it was like being a little kid again- cokes tasted right all of a sudden. Real sugar, who knew? I started picking them up weekly, and without even trying to, I ended up getting off the Tab habit. But it also cut my soda-drinking habit down to nice, normal levels. I have one or two bottled sodas a day, now, not half a carton of cans.
TNel: ProfessorOhki: Downing just two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500%You know, I'm sure diet soda isn't healthy, but this seems like either misinterpretation of numbers or complete bullshiat. Drinking two cans of diet soda a day is not going to make a 30" waste a 180" waist.LOL I thought that was funny also but I assumed they meant change is waist size. Saying you gain 5 inches of waist on Diet per 1 inch of waist on regular which even in itself is just plain as day bs.
This is completely disingenuous, this scale is logarithmic.
With a pH of 3.2, diet soda is very acidic. (As a point of reference, the pH of battery acid is 1. Water is 7.)
jaylabs: I drink 4-12 regular sodas a day, along with terribly "unhealthy" food in quantities of 4000+ calories. I do not excercise. My bloodwork came back perfectly, I have no medical issues that I'm aware of, my teeth are pearly white and my BMI is 18.5.I remain unconvinced that food can have as extreme of an impact as we're lead to believe.
