Changing to Diet Coke

Category Dieting

I needed to start losing weight. Since I drink Cokes all day as my coffee, I thought I would start drinking Diet Cokes instead but hated the taste of Diet. I use a screw top plastic bottle and pour canned cokes into it. This is nice to drop in the purse since it has a tight lid it won't spill. I started adding a little diet coke to my regular coke and gradually increased the diet coke and decreased the regular coke until I was drinking straight diet coke. I have now lost 20 pounds in a very short while.

Altho I do like Diet Coke, a squeeze of lemon or lime, or a drop of vanilla might be just what you need.

Diet coke is so bad for us. The artificial sweetner in it can cause many many problems and diseases. The best thing for u to do is try to drink water. Water from a spring. You can buy 2 gallons for twenty five cents. Look up all the uses for coke on the internet and you will probably change your mind, yuk. I use to be a vanilla coke drinker and changed my bad habits to water. I tried to drink coke just 3 days after drinking water and had to throw it away (too sweet). I can tell u after giving it up I have more energy, losing weight, feel better. You can cut down on this the same way u did the diet coke. Instead of mixing those two together mix water in the diet coke until u can wean yourself from it.


Matter of fact diet coke is worse than reg. coke. Believe it or not the food industry put so many chemicals in our food and drinks to make us fat and addicted. I got on line to see how to make coke and I was appalled. It stated the chemical that is to be put in the mix can blow up your house or you if your not careful. Imagine what it is doing to your insides. Don't want upset you, it just the fda hides so much just for a buck. Think about it and look into it and good luck. P.S. look at the money you'll save also. You can try club soda with orange juice if you need the sweetness.

Diet cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper is pretty good. If I must have a diet in a restaurant (not fast food) I ask them to put some marachino cherries and a lemon in it. It really helps. Of course, whenever possible your best bet is water.

I agree with Christine. Look up Aspertaine,(the sweetner in soda) it is so bad for you, I know a girl that only drank diet soda and when she stopped she lost almost 100 pounds.


Ddiet soda is worse for you than regular soda and it is also fattening.

I decided to stop drinking sodas and to only drink water about 8 months ago. Now the only thing that I can drink other than water is fresh squeezed orange juice, and I only drink that on occasion. Anything other than water tastes awful to me. It's all what you get used to drinking.

I hate the taste of Diet Coke. The best tasting no-sugar softdrink I have found is Pepsi Max - I could live on it!

I know lately on the news they keep saying things about how bad the diet drinks are for you. You know how long it has taken me to get used of the taste of diet? Long time. I started drinking them about 8 months ago, that's diet coke and pepsi and I know that I have eaten lots of junk at night time but all of a sudden it seemed like I have put on 20 pounds.


I just can't believe all the candy and other sweets I have consumed has put all this weight on me not even within one year. Is it true that diet drinks can cause you to gain weight. I only drink one or two a day.

PLEASE don't drink diet coke. I just was very ill with MANY complications and ailments and no doctor could figure out what was wrong with all the problems. I found some insight about aspartame and i stopped ALL products with aspartame which is most sugar free items but a little sugar is better than a lot of aspartame. I AM COMPLETELY BETTER! what i think is that anything we put in to try to substitute but still feel like we're cheating is not good for you.

yes its true ...soda makes you fat. All i drank was diet soda my whole life seeing I'm a diabetic.I recently stopped drinking it and switched to ice water . Now when ever I take as much as a sip of diet coke or pepsi my stomach will bloat .


My mother always told me that the diet pepsi makes your stomach bloat but I never believed her until I noticed the difference in my stomach when i stopped drinking it.

I only drink diet now because the calorie difference is incredible. When I first started to drink diet I hated diet Coke, it tasted funny. However, diet Pepsi and Coke zero tasted the same to me. I used to not drink aspartame because I heard so much bad stuff about it but now that I think about it I am more likely to die from obesity than aspartame. You can find a lot of bad stuff about sugar as well.

Diet coke is worst than regular coke it contains aspertame. Aspertame makes you hungry, and it may cause cancer. Look around and notice people drinking diet coke they are all fat. It doesn't work, what happen it activate your hunger.


Best thing to drink is water, and once in a while, squeeze lemon, any kind of fruit to change the taste, and it is not fattening. Good luck with your weight.
