    right now, i have been drinking diet pop, like brisk, coke zero, etc.

    should I completely cut this out, and drink water only? Or is drinking this stuff not really doing anything wrong?

    nothing wrong with dieting and diet drinks, the only thing is all the artificial things that might cause cancer down the road :dunno: If you're concered about that. Other side effects are staining your teeth and being very gasy

    I stopped drinking soda in 2006, and I went from ok to fuckyeah.. ofcourse with excercise and proper diet the last 3 months, but the soda was a good 500 calories less/day

    well, thats why i said diet, all of the diet pop (and i am from pittsburgh, everyone says pop) has 0 calories.

    the thing i just realised is, that this brisk i have been drinking isnt diet, and i drank a half case already, im kinda pissed off about it, but oh well... im prolly just gonna switch to water so this doesnt happen

    The problem with diet is that most are sweetened with aspartame. Its not exactly good for you. If you can find one sweetened with slenda (i.e diet rite) it would be fine IMO.

    There has been no conclusive evidence that aspartame is bad for you. Its the general uninformed population that always points out aspartame is bad for you.

    A very useful link for you guys.

    Unless you plan on stepping on stage then diet soda's are fine.

    Wow. You got me. How amazing is it that a site who has vested interests in a product would say its not bad for you???!!! Its almost like they planned it!

    Aspartame is about the worst of all artificial sweeteners.
