What do you guys drink when you hit the pubs. I getting a bit fed up with water and milk and was wondering are diet drinks ok. I must admit I love milk not just because of the protein content, and I dont drink alcohol. So does anyone have any alternatives that wont affect my bodybuilding. Cheers

Diet drinks are fine. Personally, I will have a Sam Adams light or 2 and then switch to water.

Diet drinks are horrible. They taste horrible and they've been shown to be quite bad for you. But I don't think they would effect your diet in a negative way :)

Drink a zima? I dunno.

I think he is looking for an alternative to alcohol at that bar. Drink unsweetened iced tea? I do every once in a while.

Having a diet coke at the bar once in a while will not kill him. Drinking 15 a night a few nights a week, for a sustained period of time, may cause issues.

yea, nate, I wasn't bashing you, but I'd rather drink a normal soda over diet anyday. It's like what, 150 calories, not that horrible for ya, ya know?

I have totally grown accustomed to diet soda and I think it tastes just fine now. I never have regular soday anymore. Just have no desire for it. I know what you mean though, most would prefer regular soda. I only suggested diet because he was worried about his bodybuilding, and especially if he's cutting, he would not be doing himself any favors by drinking regular soda.

The only kinda Iced Tea I ever drink at a bar is a long island. I drink regular iced tea outside of bars.

asparatame scares the bejesus out of me.

yeah...but imo, (contrary to many of the people on this board)

if given a choice between sugar and aspartame, sugar is the lesser evil.

Anyone have any thoughts on sucralose (splenda)?

I know artificial is always bad, but splenda never gives me headaches, which is more than I can say for aspartame.

mmm....i'm not all the way sold on sucralose at the moment. the whole formaldehyde used to break the bond and change the structure of the sugar ( i think that's how that works) has me a little worried. not into frankenstein foods at all.


as far as non-sugar sweeteners i'd have to say the one i like best is stevia, as it is a naturally occurring plant food.
