I stopped drinking diet soda and energy drinks
Posted 08 December 2012 - 02:02 PM
Earlier this year I was 178lbs and had a 16 inch neck and a 31 inch waist, 8% body fat. Recently, I was weighed at 180 and was measured at a 15 inch neck and a 34 inch waist, 18% body fat.
The biggest thing I have been doing is guzzling diet Mountain Dew and sugar
free energy drinks.
I quit cold turkey on Thursday, and I have already lost a couple of pounds, but haven't had the chance to measure.
I am making a post so early because I know it will help me keep my goal of quitting altogether.

Not trying to make the case that diet sodas are remotely good for you, and I drink way too many myself, but there isn't really any conclusive data that shows they make you gain weight.

energy drinks wreck your body with tons of sugar.
Man I got addicted to them damn things recently and finally stopped when my heart started beating like crazy. I could hear it in my ears. Bad for the heart too.

When I switched from regular sodas to diet I lost 10lbs right away. They may not be healthy but they are healthier than regular.
This. I used diet soda to help lose about 40 lbs a few years back. Do they have their issues? Obviously. But they are healthier than regular soda.
