    is it okay to drink diet soda ? Contains caffeine which is a diuretic
    is it like drinking water ? No
    will drinking carbonated water effect your body much comaperd to water ? Carbonation slows down fat oxidization
    does it hydrate you ? Not properly, again contains caffeine, a diuretic
    what are the side effects of carbonated water ? Slows fat loss again
    any thing else to help on info ? The artificial sweetener in pop has actually been proven to increase cravings for sweets. Even though there is still artificial sweetener in the following I would still recommend them over pop, and they can count towards your daily water intake: flavoured waters, crystal-light, kool-aid w/sweetener packs added instead of sugar

    only people thta know facts on this topic please
    So personally I would recommend staying away from pop, just my opinion.

    I'm not an expert on the subject, but I will tell you that I consume 1-2 diet pepsi's/day, and its never hurt my appearance. I drank them right up to my water drop before my show, and I was ripped a hell. Just dont get into the habit of drinking more than 1 or maybe 2 a day Tops. They have alot of citric acids and crap in them.

    Only water is regarded by the body as water. Anytime you drink something other than water, it must be filtered primarily by the kidneys. Diet pop would belong to this category due to the addition of flavorings, sodium, carbonation, preservatives, sugar alcohols and possibly caffeine. Thus, it is neither treated as water, nor does it benefit you like water (8oz of diet pop does not equal 8oz of water) though you’ll receive some hydration as with all water based foods and drinks. The same principles apply to carbonated water, flavored water and vitamin infused water.

    That said, since diet pop lacks ‘actual’ sugar which necessitates calories and requires additional metabolic break down, it is indeed quite unique. Though there are a few dissenters, the nutritional and bodybuilding communities overwhelmingly regard diet pop as neither cosmetically nor physiologically damaging to the traditional or pre-contest dieter. Consequently, it has been used consistently since its inception, as a neutral (not positive nor negative) dietary aid. However, they add the caveat that even diet pop should be consumed in moderation by the serious dieter.

    If you have a craving for sweets, you could try crystal light. I mix it about half as strong as they say and it really sets me up. And as far as calories, basically it has none, and no sugars whatsoever. And as it is an uncarbonated mix I would say it would be very similar to drinking water for hydration.

    I think its' a somewhat reasonable question for an uneducated person on the matter seeing as diet soda is mainly formulated from water and artificial products... don't know if your response was necessary...

    I think Shortie nailed it...that post yesterday was funny Pres, but don't sweat it you're still a family member, albeit the black sheep at the moment.

    No revenge buddy, "...dish better served cold"

    And, hey Shortie, what ever happened to your arch nemesis "The Licensee"? Now that guy was a hilarious, and your battles were epic...hahahaha! Is he still around?

    Unfortunately, not today! Too many infractions, now Sane is talking about PM's.

    If you have frustrations that need unbottling, join "Fight Club" or go punch the dryer in your office bathroom. We don't need that here.

    Sorry Pres, no mercy today, that's part of family too. Repent tomorrow, and you should be fine.

    Oh and for future reference, the forum has a great memory and mods often pulls old threads when trouble is uprooted, Shortie just beat them to it.

    Don't drink it. Almost all diet soft drinks contain aspartame/phenylanine. This is toxic. No, I am not kidding you do a google search on aspartame if you don't believe me. On top of that you are driking artifical dyes and flavors, and caffeine.

    Better take your Milk Thistle/Liv52 with that 2 liter! LOL

    Seriously, that's quite true though Mike.
    But hey so does the air...contains toxins and chemicals that is. Not to mention, water itself has numerous cyanobacterial toxins, viruses, parasites and a host of potentially harmful chemical cleansing agents chlorine (in higher concentrations...rat poison) being the most prominent, mercury in fish, toxins in farm-raised as opposed to cage raised chicken. But such is life.

    As far as I know, only Michael Jackson sleeps in an oxygen chamber and wears a filtration mask during the day and drinks only bottled water. But even he has chemical vices, constant hair perm and dye chemicals, skin whitening and anti-hair growth injections, and of course the Crayola people have to prepare/repair his face daily. So, the real question becomes do you prefer Diet Coke or Diet Pepsi?

    Would you jerk off looking at the picture, why would you want the picture, would you want the boy naked? But onto the topic of diet soda vs. water, there's lots of diet sodas that claim to have just one calorie, but there filled up with crazy chemicals that don't have calories. Water and juice are the way to go, I stopped drinking soda altogether once I got into body building, except the occasional soda at a family party or something, but I like to drink at least a gallon of water per day.

    I know that cops carry two liters of cola with them to clean up blood from auto wrecks. If you put a tbone steak in a bowl of coke it will be gone in two days. Someone made a big post on this the other day. It also has free radicals that destroy muscle.
