I drink cherry coke zero and it has never interfered with my weight loss. I am, however, currently cutting back on it - not because I think it is unhealthy - because I want to cut out caffeine and I felt I was spending too much money on it. I still drink it or coke zero when I go out to eat.

I used to drink a ton of diet soda, several a day and nothing else I almost never drink anything but water (and one cup of coffee) now and haven't for a few years, I did not notice any change in my diet success or failure, I just knew if wasn't good for me so it was something that was unhealthy to eliminate. Plus it saves a lot of$$$ not buying it.

It turns out I need the caffeine. My medication causes focusing issues. Can't get my school work done. So it's like having ADHD but I can't take those medication because of my bipolar (It will trigger a manic episode and that's bad). And caffeine is the only thing that seems to help me focus on my school work. But my meds also make me caffeine sensitive so I can only drink 2 cans a day... i think. I'm still figure it out. It may be 1 can. It depends how tonight goes.

I drink three 20-ounce bottles of Diet Coke every day. It has no discernible impact on my weight loss efforts. What it does do is to wake my sleepy butt up. Right now, I freely admit being addicted to caffeine and I also freely admit that I have no intention of cutting it out or cutting back. The times in my life that I haven't had caffeine have been awful. I get severe headaches to the point of vomiting. I'll pass on that.

I'm drinking a Diet Coke right now. I find them filling, especially room temperature Diet Coke. I drink maybe one every couple of days...

I drink Crystal Light with vodka as a low-cal alcoholic drink. I drink once a week so I feel it can't hurt!

I love this! I didn't think to ask if anyone had given it up and noticed a difference. This is encouraging that its not going to kill my diet. =) I will say again though, that I RARELY drink it, but still good to know that an occasional treat isn't doing anything.

Is diet soda bad for you?

The answer is a resounding yes and for a number of reasons:

1. Sodas bad for your teeth - although diet sodas contain far less sugar than regular sodas and are mostly made up of artificial sweeteners, they're still highly acidic and may damage your teeth in the long run.

2. Diet soda can make you gain weight - even though diet drinks contain less calories than the original beverage, it that they're really that good. They might still be rich in calories. In addition, there's nothing like sweetened drinks to help you develop a craving for other sweet food, which means more calories.

3. Drinking diet sodas makes you drink less of more healthy beverages like water, green tea, or natural juices. You're missing out on the good things and sticking to the bad.

rarely, but I used to all the time until I started to watch what I eat. I had one diet soda about 2 weeks ago and omg, it made me feel literally alive and happy. I felt so good after drinking it. It was a can of happy! lol I don't get it, drinking water doesn't make me feel that way, but oh boy, that soda sure did!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE diet coke but can not drink it. When I drink diet soda I crave real sugar. So it's best for me to just stay away.

I only get one when I'm out to eat. Sometimes when I get subway, I'll get a Coke Zero. If there's anything besides water, I'd rather a nestea zero (splenda) or a variety of different teas.

That's too funny! That's exactly why I asked - I was eating Subway and got a Coke Zero with it. Normally it's water or tea for me.

I used to drink about five bottles of Diet Dr Pepper a day on average. But I started to notice that I was actually having issues with my food intake . I was craving sweets and fats and I would find myself over-consuming at night. But that has been my own personal experience.
