  • neither are good for you...but if you decide to have one every once in a while then regular is better.

  • I think it depends, soda in general is not good for you, but some people say the artificial sweeteners are bad for your brain..... not sure if it is true or not.

  • Yes. Diet has artifical sweetners in it and other chemicals not in regular soda. Diet is only good for someone who is diabetic. My doctor told me to NOT drink diet soda if I am trying to lose weight but to limit my intake of regular soda.

  • Diet soda makes you want to eat more. My dh knows someone who had gastric bypass surgery to lose weight and the dr. told her to stay away from diet soda.

  • My doctor told me that when he sees someone with a muffin top, loose belly role, they are always diet soda drinkers. I found that very interesting.

  • I think having a regular one once in a while isn't bad. But drink water instead this way there is no confusion.

  • some studies have shown the artificial sweeteners are not healthy, but I can't remember what they supposedly cause. I think everything gives those little rats cancer. I don't mean to sound flippant about cancer, but some of the things they report are just silly.
