I have also consumed a lot of diet pop. Not like 4 cans a day or anything but usually a least one. In most I don’t see anything wrong with that. I tried to quite diet pop once and have struggled with losing weight ever since (coincidence) – I am not trying to quite it but to my surprise I have been drinking a lot less.
In fact, we don’t even have diet pop in the house any more! We do have some carbonated water that I hope to get rid of though. I did have a can of diet coke yesterday – it was okay – but not as good as normal. I hope that over time I can just cut out even if it means switching to flavoured water for a treat. It still contains the artificial sweeteners but at least it doesn’t harm my bones. Depleting my bones worries me more then that harms of the artificial sweeteners.
I am feeling pretty good about myself as I passed one up during lunch!
I don’t think that I will ever cut it out completely but I would like to cut it mostly out. Having it once and a while when we go out for dinner… or using in those low calories cake/cupcake mixes. Diet pop is also a nice snack at the movie theater and so much lower in calories then the popcorn 😉
