    So right now, I'm a big soda drinker. I always have been. About 6 months ago, I made the switch to diet and was wondering how much it should help. I should probably just cut it out completely. How many other people are still drinking some sort of soda?

    it's either real soda or none at all with me. Diet tastes pretty gross to me. The only time i crave soda is after a greasy ass meal and need it to wash it down and even then i just take a few gulps. Why people drink soda by itself is beyond me.

    Drinking water is ideal, but diet is a hell of a lot better than regular as far as controlling your weight goes.

    I'm to the point where anything to sugary is just nasty for me. I probably haven't had soda in like a year other than as a mixer.

    this. Your body is used to you drinking that shit and craves it, but after a while of just drinking water, you'll think soda is nasty.

    I used to be a chronic soda drinker, and transitioning to strictly water pretty much sucked for a while. It helps if you throw in some powdered crystal light or something. I've been digging powdered propel lately.

    the easiest way to transition is crystal light.

    i love mountain dew, but i rarely drink soda. I drink water and shakes all week , OJ in the AM and a 10 calorie Vitamin water when im bored. Sometimes ill pop a diet Mt Dew for the taste and preworkout caffeiene but im not a huge fan of carbonation. On weekends sometimes Ill have a Mt Dew of color choice.

    i started drinking 10oz of dr pepper before hockey.
    i figure its probably the best time to do it, & its the only caffeine i ever consume really.
    plus now its a ritual :o

    Just picked up a 50oz bottle of water and put in some crystal light. Trying to do this instead to prevent any intake from Pepsi/Mt. Dew
