Can of softdrink - Pepsi Max in Particular

Postby Jenni » Sun Jan 22, 2006 5:08 pm

Ive made a pledge to only have 1 can of diet soft drink a night, difficult for me because i used to drink between 5 - 10 a day...

ive been doing okay since last Monday but last night i had a can, and then i had another half a can!

eeek! I went to the gym twice today to make up!

Wow, perhaps you can fill several little pepsi bottles with ice water, so they'll be a healthy alternative to grab from the fridge.
Congrats of the pledge. Remember you only have one liver and that soda stuff really makes the poor ol' liver work hard to get it all out of the body again.

If you like Coke at all, its either Kmart or BigW that now sell slabs of 200mL cans. So if you want a cool drink at least you can feel like you are drinking a whole can but its almost half the size.

HI Girls Its funny I stumbled across this tread this morning as my husband and I were having this discussion about drinking to muck diet drinks.We have come to the conclusion that we are both hooked and we have to stop.

Has anyone tried to give up diet drinks totally? And if so what were the withdrawal symptoms like? I am drinking at least 5 cans a day :oops: and I want to stop as I have heard so much bad press about them(diet drinks)

Hi Natalie, this true story site link should help you and your husband beat the diet pop cravings - http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/26604/

Even my naturopath said if I really, really had to have a fizzy drink, I should have a glass of sugar lemonade once per week because the diet pepsi and diet coke I loved to drink so much were slowly damaging the liver amongst other things.

If the drinks you like are caffeinated, you may experience withdrawals as caffeine is addictive. May be irritability, shakiness, headaches, nausea and obviously cravings. If you really consume a LOT of the stuff the best way would be to reduce reduce reduce at least until you are not consuming huge amounts before you cut it entirely.

Cheers,
