I know this isn't exactly "bodybuilding related", but I figured someone in here would know.

I always hear conflicting opinions as to which of the two are better for you.

So...is diet pop as harmful as everyone says it is, or is it the regular stuff that's worse?

Aspartame can give you headaches but at least it isn't drinking liquide sugar.

I drink diet soda. No problems for me so far.

Here's an old thread about aspartame.

If I want a soda I will drink something like Diet Rite. I know it is caffeine free and sodium free but I believe it is aspartame free as well. Also enjoy Crystal Light on occasion.

I suppose its like anything, drink it in moderation. If you have a can a day won't kill ya either way. I gave up regular pop cause my body would crave it. I would get headaches if I didn't have any pop and would have to go get some. So I gave it up 2 years ago. I have a diet once in awhile, drink more water. I do drink coffee for my caffeine though.
