Default Carbonated water ??

Do you retain water when you drink sparkling water?? I don't drink diet soda because of the sodium but the water is sugar free and sodium free and calorie free..

I get a craving for cabonated beverages just wondering if these are okay because if I drank a can or 2 of diet pepsi I retain like mad.


RESTART with new goal of 120!

Sparkling water or seltzer water that have no sodium won't cause water retention. I drink this stuff all the time! There are no artificial sweeteners in the water I drink, so not sure if that would be a factor.

There's lots of things in Diet Coke that aren't "food". Probably everything in Diet Coke. I quit drinking it but very occasionally. But to put it in perspective, a can of Diet Coke as 40 mg sodium, and a glass of milk has about 125 mg sodium.

I also feel bloated with diet beverages which is another reason why I rarely drink them.
