crap, i used to be addicted to mountain dew but quit because of the calories and for a while i was just drinking water or crystal light green tea. Well i went and got some diet coke cause my friend came over and she loves it and i like it but usually never buy it much.  Now im addicted to diet coke... grrr.

Well, there aren't any calories in diet coke, but it's not that great for you either.  First off, the carbonation will break down muscle fiber and will cause bloating as well.  Sometimes the taste of diet soda will cause people to crave real sweet things, so that is a potential issue too.  Just limit yourself...one per day or one every other day and you'll be fine.

That is why I only drink water.  I know that if I drink something else, that is going to be what I want instead of water.  I have no self control!!!

 I agree with you...this was subject of much debate in a Nutrition Class I took a year or so ago.  The way I understood it was that the sugar substitute makes ur body crave real sugar?  IDK...its been a while since I had that class LOL  I think this is true tho
