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.

Try to drink water, especially pH balanced water more on the alkaline side--ph about 8 or higher. I believe you will feel better. ...Read more

Sweetness without the nutrition to satisfy leads the body to want more; so people tend to eat or drink more calories than they might had they had a small can of soda. Better choices: water, unsweetened ice tea, lemonade sweetened with stevia. Caffeine in coke acts like water pill so person wants to drink more. ...Read more
