Nothing wrong with it. Great when you're on a cut especially, because it still fills you up a little and gives you something to sip on without the cals.

diet pop obviously dosent have the calories like regular pop but there have been studies done that say that it make you crave sweets more so people who drink diet pop tend to eat more sweets

The artifiical sweeteners cause the same insulin spike that regular soda causes. So, you will crave sweets. High protein will curb your sweet craving.

I work with a guy who used to be in manufacturing for Pepsi. He said, if it comes in a glass, it's better for you. If it comes in plastic, it horrible. He also said, that diet soda, without any fruit additives, is 99% water. Once there's a natural fruit flavor added, there has to be preservatives added. If you have to drink Diet Soda, and you don't, because no one is holding a gun to your head, drink a cola-type flavor that has no caffeine. Caffeine will dehydrate you.

Drink flavored water or carbonated flavored water. Much better choices.

Yeah, Coke did an awesome job with all their "Zero" sodas. Coke Zero, Cherry Coke Zero, Vanilla Coke Zero, and Sprite Zero all taste pretty close to the real thing compared to diet.

I cut all soda from my regular diet a few years ago though, but I still use all of these occasionally when I'm drinking liquor to mix a drink. I figure if I'm gonna have a bunch of rum/jack/soco and cokes I don't need to add on a few hundred calories of soda with it.

Men's Health hosted a study (didn't CONDUCT the study, so don't go rolling your eyes just yet!) saying that there was a statistically significant correlation between diet soda consumption and fat gain. They didn't write WHY that was, but I assume it has to be either increase calorie consumption in lieu of the diet drink or the makeup of the soda somehow alters metabolic processes (insulin response or something?). Either way, I won't pretend to know what it said (it was only an excerpt, after all), but I present it to you as food for thought...
