    diet soft drinks

    Which is the better option for a cheat drink. Diet or regular cola. And just for this question,,,neither is not a valid answer.

    well soda in general isnt the best thing for you. if ur worried about the chemicals vs the calories then go with the calories if u can afford them. personally ive been drinking diet soda for years and dont think ive had any problems with it.

    How ironic on a board of chemical use that we would be worried about the chems in a pop. LOL
    I would say the diet would be better for the calorie count. I may have heard somewhere that diet although has no calories, it still creates an insulin spike as if it were still sugar. Would like to hear from the diet gurus though..

    Both are junk in my opinion if you want something worth while grab a piece of fruit put down the crap which is called pop. Read the health concerns http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diet_soda. Its both absolute garbage stay far away and keep it real.

    Clearly you are clueless on the matter of health and diet.

    carbonated beverages have been linked to low calcium levels in the blood and other nasty things like kidney stones.

    The studies that link artifcial sweetners to cancer were done on rats with rediculous ammounts of it. If you translated it to something human size, it would have been something like 12 diet soda's a day for 20 years.

    I wouldn't worry about the occasional diet soda or artificial sweetner. Like lots of things, fine in moderation.

    Yea, I'm thinking once every couple weeks. Just wanted to pick the lesser of two evils.

    a buddy of mine used to work for coca cola.. he said a pallet of regular coke weighed something like 400lbs more than a pallet of diet coke.. that shit is nutz.

    diet is better.. but even diet soda had a lot of sodium so.. other than that it is not that bad for you.
