Diet drinks and diet cordials and the such are Ok but dont over do it. Try and drink at least 1.5 L of water a day and you will probably find that you wont want to drink as much soft drink anyway.

Personally I drink copious quantities of tea and coffee throughout the day. I will usually have a coke zero with dinner, and then just water if I want anything else.

Anthony, from what I understand, anything with fake 'sugar' in them are not so good!

There's another thread on here somewhere (can someone say where?!) regarding diet soft drinks, etc and some links to very interesting articles. Maybe give that a read and see what you think.

I try to drink mostly water but if I have a can or 2 of coke zero a week I don't fret....everything in moderation....right?!

Aim to drink a good 2.5-3ltrs of water a day. Coffee or tea without sugar and with low fat or skim milk are ok. Herbal teas, sugar free soft drink is ok but not too much.

Personally, I have 1 coffee no sugar with skim milk a day, 1-2 cups of lime or lemon tea (hot water with lime or lemon juice the 99% juice you get from the supermarket) and a few times a week i'll have a glass of coke zero or sugar free lemonade. Artificial sweetners are not good for you, so don't over do it.

Oh, and well done on the 9 days on water only :D

Diet soft drinks are fine to drink as they have no calories. Dont worry about the sodium content either, its miniscule.

Whether the artificial sweetners give you cancer? Not sure, apparantly everything gives you cancer these days!

I'm not great with the taste of water either so my solution was to add lemon juice to it. At the start I used to squeeze a lemon but that became a bit of a pain so now I have at home and at work one of those lemon juice bottles from the baking section. Everytime I fill up my water bottle I squirt in some lemon juice and for nearly two years I haven't looked back.

Another suggestion for "transition" (you know, when taste buds have to accept that fruit is the new sweet) is to use fruit juice. You have to be careful of the calories but spreading a small glass of 100% fruit juice over 2 litres of water can easily be absorbed into your calorie count and if you get 2 litres of water down you then its worth it. Get a 2 litre empty jug, pour in a small glass of juice and then fill it up and keep it in the fridge. Careful though it will only last for a couple of days before it tastes a bit manky.

That's an interesting tip. I don't like lemon water -- I always ditch the slice of lemon if they give you one in a restaurant or wherever -- but that's just a personal thing.

Strangely what I found was the key for *me* to be abe to drink loads of water was the temperature of the water. I was always drinking chilled water, but once I started drinking a room temperature bottle, and I seriously guzzled it down. Weird, huh? I also know some people like drinking mugs of warm water. Different strokes for different folks, right?

Agreed I can't drink cold water but will finish a 750ml bottle of room temp water in a couple of hours - sometimes while at tafe i will go through 4 bottles a day. Guess that could be a good thing to try seeing how you like your water cold, room temp or warm.
