0 calories? 0 grams of sugar? What? There's got to be some sort of trap that'll make you fat with these drinks but I don't know what it is?

Anyone know?

People think they're making their diet much healthier, when they're really not changing a whole lot. Because of this, they think they can compensate and add more calories. That's why it can be bad. I drink 8 cans a day regardless.

Some people seem to think that the artificial sweetener causes cancer, but it's never been proven. It kinda screws up your metabolism because your body tastes sugar but doesn't actually get it.
If you could blow up the world with a flick of a switch,
Would you do it?

Would you do it?

I don't drink diet sodas.

Eating sugary foods that don't have caloric content cause your body to consume more calories overall. Sugar is linked with high calorie foods, so in essence, you're destroying that sugar = bad mental connection.

There is. The sodium (there's tons of that) makes you hungry, and you eat more.

aspartame. causes people to go mentally insane.

Among other things, including cancer and blindness.

It was invented by accident while trying to invent a new rat poison believe it or not. It was found to taste sweet so the idea was sold to soda companies trying to make a calorie-less drink. It really isn't fattening but still can't touch water.

Aspartame/artificial sugar (as it's preferred to be called) is in coffee too though (sweet and low and other "sugar" packets).

EDIT: (To two posts up) Lots of sodium? I guess so, but barely. A can of coke has like 30 mgs of sodium, practically every soda says "low sodium" above the nutrition facts; yet if you look at a can of beans it literally has some crazy ass number, like I wanna say it breaks 300 easy.

I used to work at a food place. And people would order like double bacon cheese hamburgers and fries then order a diet coke. I mean, what the hell? If you're gonna eat that bad, why not just go all the way and not wash it all down with piss flavored drink.

Water is ****ing awesome

but I drink tooo much probably, or at least I used to

I had a Hawaiian punch jug that I would feel with water and refill it about 3 times in a night, so probably 8 times a day

Artificial sweetener ****s with your brain. You think you're getting something that you aren't. Your body thinks its about to get a ton of sugar, then it doesn't.

Caffeine free soda, for example, gives me an instantaneous headache.

My brain's like, "alright! let's speed up!" then it's like "Ah, no fuel! CRASH AND BURN!"

(btw, I'm so addicted to soda that some days i'd rather take a Coke than a blowjob)

it's just because some stupid people prefer the taste.

I can't drink diet pops. they taste horrendous.

yeah, it took forever


but I had the jug like 3/4 full sitting on my floor after a workout one night and I haven't seen it since

I looked in the trashcan, under my bed, my closet, everywhere! it's too big to fit in the diswasher

Personally, I notice a direct correlation between the amount of soda I drink and the frequency/vulnerability of me getting stomach aches. I used to get really bad stomach aches almost every other day and then I cut down on drinking sodas (Coca-colas, specifically), and I rarely get get stomach aches now. I didn't purposely stop drinking soda, but my mom bought lemon tea/ice tea/juice for a period of time and I noticed that my stomach stopped being a bitch. Whenever I do go on another soda binge, my stomach starts acting up again.

...modes and scales are still useless.

1 - the 30 mG is for 8 ounces (0.25 litre).

2 - diet soda drinkers usually drink 16 oz (0.5 litre) at a time. That would be 60 mG.

3 - Many diet soda drinkers slam down 5 or more 1/2 liter bottles a day.

4 - Total, that would be 300. Equal to your can of beans example.

5 - A can of beans has protein, too. Not so, for the diet coke.

Bottom line. The shit is heinous. People tend to consume mass quantities, without even thinking about it. It all adds up to much more than a single "serving".

And we haven't even mentioned the damned caffeine.

I cant remember the name of the stuff but it binds your fat cells together and makes them twice as hard to lose, and aspartame. Aspartame lets all hell loose on your body. Scary stuff

If they say diet has no sugar or calories or whatever, and they claim it tastes just like regular, why don't they just get rid of regular and make diet the new regular? Then everyone would have to drink diet pop.

"They say" does NOT make it true, dimwit. Diet does not taste like regular.

Being Diabetic, I have to take the diet option if I want to drink pop. That's right, pop.

If I go for full sugar, I die.
