i hear you!!!

hubby banned coke from the house and its been over a year and im far less moody since giving it up… but if we are out and i do have a coke… wow, total sugar rush and head spin!

ive tried the diet stuff and the coke zero but its just not the same so if i cant have a real one i go without

Also, don’t take a nap at 7pm, then wake up and drink 2 diet cokes. I’m wired.

And my hands are swollen. Also a bad side effect.

not to mention its liquid poison… soda should be banned everywhere. It’s so bad for you!!

I’m the opposite.  I started drinking Diet Coke to cut back on sugar.  However, at this point, it is the only kind of Coke that tastes good to me–the regular stuff is way too sweet.

I can’t drink regular Coke. It just tastes weird to me. I’ve been drinking Diet Coke since I was 6. Good parenting, Mom!

My Fiance drinks diet pop all the time & it makes me insane. Its nasty… once we live together its out!

@thecolorteale: my Fiance lives in KY and people inhale mountain dew there. It’s shocking lol

I edited the weight thing out to avoid a major discussion lol but they do go hand in hand! Regular pop is just empty calories that never fills you up & aspartame kicks cravings into overdrive!

A coke belly- hehe. Speaking of healthy habits… last week for 3 nights I ate a giant cupcake instead of dinner. I was at work & I was too lazy to make anything. lol I know, I’m gross.

I stopped drinking soda and I can’t even stand the taste anymore…sometimes I will be tempted but the moment I taste it I just think “eww!”

As for caffiene in general…I really can’t do it.  I get really hyper for around 30 minutes(or less) and then totally crash.
