    Do y'all drink it? Shit ain't bad

    I have diet orange soda, diet mountain dew, and diet ginger ale

    It's got 0 calories which is the main reason why I drink it cuz I'm concerned with staying at a good weight

    But it tastes the same I like it

    I try to stay away from all soda, but I def don't fuck with diet soda, it has a terrible aftertaste.

    Once in a while in the heat of summer nothing beats a Mountain Dew or Cream Soda, and I'll typically mix Root Beer and Orange soda if I get fast food, though I usually only have a few sips and leave it there, lol.

    I do work out dude, you've been saying alot of dumb shit lately

    There's a gym in my building I do the tread mill and bench press and other exercises

    The point of drinking diet soda is that it doesn't have all the calories and sugar that regular soda does

    I don't like the after taste. Just drink a regular soda and do an extra couple minutes on the treadmill.

    You read that right: Diet soda doesn't help you lose weight after all. A University of Texas Health Science Center study found that the more diet sodas a person drank, the greater their risk of becoming overweight. Downing just two or more cans a day increased waistlines by 500%. Why? Artificial sweeteners can disrupt the body's natural ability to regulate calorie intake based on the sweetness of foods, suggested an animal study from Purdue University. That means people who consume diet foods might be more likely to overeat, because your body is being tricked into thinking it's eating sugar, and you crave more.

    According to a 2008 University of Minnesota study of almost 10,000 adults, even just one diet soda a day is linked to a 34% higher risk of metabolic syndrome, the group of symptoms including belly fat and high cholesterol that puts you at risk for heart disease. Whether that link is attributed to an ingredient in diet soda or the drinkers' eating habits is unclear. But is that one can really worth it?

    Diet sodas contain something many regular sodas don't: mold inhibitors. They go by the names sodium benzoate or potassium benzoate, and they're in nearly all diet sodas. But many regular sodas, such as Coke and Pepsi, don't contain this preservative.

    That's bad news for diet drinkers. "These chemicals have the ability to cause severe damage to DNA in the mitochondria to the point that they totally inactivate it--they knock it out altogether," Peter Piper, a professor of molecular biology and biotechnology at the University of Sheffield in the U.K., told a British newspaper in 1999. The preservative has also been linked to hives, asthma, and other allergic conditions, according to the Center for Science in the Public Interest.

    Since then, some companies have phased out sodium benzoate. Diet Coke and Diet Pepsi have replaced it with another preservative, potassium benzoate. Both sodium and potassium benzoate were classified by the Food Commission in the UK as mild irritants to the skin, eyes, and mucous membranes.

    ^this.

    diet soda is worse for u than regular soda. its also more fattening because the aspertame (fake sugar) tricks the body and it doesnt know how to process it.

    Diet soda can cause several problems from kidney to cell damage.


    Diet sods has something regular doesnt.

    Sodium benzoate and pottasium benzoate which has chemicals that can cause liver damage.


    But so does beer so heh.....

    p. chase. im not expecting you to understand this, but whether or not you are physically within your weight range for what is considered average or healthy has a lot to do with a lot of other things, not just how much you drink soda. however, as compared to regular soda, diet soda has been found to contribute to weight gain more than regular soda, as due to use of chemicals that make you retain "water weight" type fat.

    u cant just say, i drink diet coke, im fit, so youre wrong. thats not how it works, bro. u got aids btw
