Yes, you should stop drinking those. mineral water is always better. Pepsi Max? I think it's not really low in calories.

Out of everything basic water is better straight from the tap but you don't have to completely cut out things like pepsi max or cke zero. There is .3 calories in a can of pepsi max so yes you can have that every so often as a treat. Its things like regular pepsi and regular coke that need to be kicked out of the diet.

What about Diet Coke ? I swapped from Coke to Diet Coke about 2 years ago ( use to hate the taste of diet and LOVED coke ) but now full strength coke gives me a headache.

Should I stop having diet cokes ? I read somewhere if you cut out all soft drinks you could potentially lose 15kgs in one year !

I keep telling myself one diet coke at lunch is my little vice for the day...

Sometimes water just doesn't do it for me !!!

well normal coke has like 200 cals in a can and diet coke has about 0.3 cals in a can. So if you were originally having 5 0r 6 normal cokes in a day and suddenly cut them out it would make a huge difference.

Found this on the internet. Regards, Claire.

There have been many studies done about diet soft drinks and so far they basically show that there is nothing good about them. They contain as much sodium, which can increase your blood pressure, as well as aspartame which has been linked with cancer more recently. Another problem of diet drinks is that they contain empty calories that are used to replace foods that you should be eating. As a former coke addict myself (diet coke that is :wink: ) I can testify to the addicting aspect of diet drinks. Most persons state they drink them to help them lose weight, when in fact, it tends to do the opposite. The high sodium in them causes water retention which shows as added weight on the scale. By drinking them instead of taking in the nutrients your body needs, your brain causes you to crave food because it needs the vitamins the foods contain, so your appetite actually increases. Also by drinking them you probably are not taking in enough water which is really what your body needs to flush out the toxins that develop through the digestive processes. I personally would recommend you at least cut down on the consumption if not eliminate it all together, which is what I did, because they have no redeeming qualities that I have found in my studies of them.
Kind regards,

Reading all this makes me really guilty. If there is one thing that I haven't been able to keep away from is soda. I don't drink it all the time but I do manage to down at least one can a day...and sometimes not the diet kind. Pepsi max tastes strange to me and it has this weird aftertaste! Anyone esle ever notice that? But OK, starting today (crossing fingers...)....

i tried to kick soft drinks too, i was addicted to pepsi max. ive given it up, i only have it on special occasions like at a bbq or something. Ive been having diet coke mostly lately.

i know how bad it is for me and should get rid of it, but its so hard. and compared to other things like smoking, which i dont do, it isnt as bad as that. plus when im craving a binge session, ill have a diet coke instead and that stops me binging. surely one can of diet coke is better then a binge of choccies & cakes & chips!

i usually make sure ive had at least 1.5-2 litres of water a day before i have a diet coke, so im still having water.
