    So with nothing in it but flavored salt and C02, a while ago i decided diet coke would be the best thing for me to drink when i needed something with flavor. A couple days ago though, i ran across this article.

    http://www.emaxhealth.com/11/586.html

    Looking back.. my fat loss hasnt been all too great, and though it could just be me fooling myself into beleiving that, i think diet coke is the cause. I drink it practically all the time. Is there any truth to the article?

    instead of diet coke.... try drinking something like cranberry juice or herbal tea (not sweet tea)... you first said "when i needed something with flavor" but then later you said you drank it practically all the time... you should be drinking water whenever you are thirsty, but when you just CRAAAVEEEEE something with flavor, and a protein shake won't cut it, try some juice (not apple)

    I know pro bb's that drink diet coke all the way up until two weeks out from a show. It's not the diet coke that has slowed your weight loss, it's your diet.

    I think anything carbonated is not good for you, but I have a diet coke on occasion when I'm really craving a soda.

    as long as you drink enough water to help counter the caffiene that's in the diet coke, you should be ok.

    the amount of references listed there is mind blowing :rolleyes:


    maybe the basic fuckin dieting idiot who'd fail at weight loss anyway. most people who are serious about dieting should be able to avoid that through some kind of log, be it written or mental (ie. consciously aware of the fact they are dieting)

    the amount of water in the soda is well more than you'd excrete due to the caffeine

    I don't think it hurts your weight loss, but personally I feel like crap when I drink it. If I just stick to water or tea I feel alot better throughout the day and my workouts.
