Post Aspartame/Diet Soda

After reading postings about aspartame and diet soda stalling weight loss, I decided to try a switch. I have been drinking TONS of Tab (a diet soda made by Coca-Cola) for years, which contains aspartame, sodium & caffiene. I gave Diet Rite a try (has none of the ingredients) and like it. I have struggled with weight loss and will be curious to see if this helps. One thing I can say - it has only been a week away from all the nasty ingredients, but I also have major back problems and experience lots of pain every day. Since switching my choice of beverage, my pain has subsided tremdously!! I also have actually caught myself drinking more water.
What a positive change!!!!

Hey that's great!! I switched from drinking Diet MtDew to water not too long ago, and not only do I feel better, but it's a lot cheaper too!

I have no idea the validity of this belief, but many of my European friends have contended for years that soda and diet sodas contribute heavily to the development of cellulite. Water is sooooo much better for you anyway.

In case you are looking for another alternative, I was just at the store and bought some Hansens diet soda.

They are aspartame, caffeine and sodium free, sweetened with splenda as the Diet Rite is with no preservatives

i bought Tangerine-Lime and Black Cherry, there are many other flavors as well, in case you are looking for a little variety.
