Diet sodas: Guess what? Diet sodas don't help u lose weight! bubbles are bursting! actually, all diet sodas except those with stevia--potentially negative health problems. We usually make up for the decrease in calories from zero calorie sodas by eating more "other" calories. Try to drink water, especially pH balanced water more on the alkaline side--ph about 8 or higher. I believe you will feel better.
