I have a little ritual before drinking pepsi max.

Because it is summer now, I need to have the drink colder than usual so it doesn't warm up too quickly before I drink it.

I will open the can and put in the fridge for 5-10 minutes (if at fridge temperature already) then drink it. If a bottle, I will do the same, but for 20 minutes.

I drank wayyyy too much diet coke/pepsi max.
Now Im drinking 2+litres water per day and have been cutting down on the pepsi... 2cans down to 1 can a day, then 1 every 2nd day, now i am at 1 can every 3rd day. yayyy.
I still like to have the bubbles.... so i have soda water. I want to get to where I just have pepsi max very occassionally.
As well as all the other harmful stuff, I read somewhere that it can cause you to retain fluid too.

i drink too much diet coke & pepsi max. my preference is diet coke but have learnt to like pepsi max as well. i know that i shouldn't drink so much - probably have the equivalent of a 600ml bottle each day, most days plus one extra glass of it. i do still drink 2l+ of water a day so at least it isn't at the expense of my water intake.

i'm probably like san and will cut back eventually, but for now it's almost like a treat for me :oops:
