Just to hold myself accountable, I decided to tell you guys that I had a Diet Coke this afternoon while I was working.
The afternoon seemed to just drag along and I felt the need for a little pick me up! Now, I adore Diet Coke but I try to keep the drinking of chemicals to a minimum. I would say I drink a Diet Coke about once a month, but no more than that. I mean, sometimes I even dream of drinking a Diet Coke and instead of thinking about something 24/7, I just go ahead and let myself have it. But, between Diet Coke and Regular Coke which one is better for you?? As far as the taste is concerned, that’s your own opinion. However, health-wise, Diet Coke may be sugar and calorie free, but it contains nasty additives and a bunch of other crap. First of all, anything that is not natural is just not good for your body. I don’t know much about aspartame, which is listed as the third ingredient in Diet Coke, but I do know that it is something bad for you and it is thought to be linked to some different health problems along with weight gain. So, I know it would probably be better for me to just drink a Regular Coke since drinking soda is not an every day occurrence for me. However, I know this is just all in my head but I find it SO difficult to take in that many calories from a drink!! I know the best thing for me to do would be to cut out soda completely but I am not sure if I can do that. What is your view on soda?
