I was looking at a bottle of diet mountain dew and saw that it has 0 calories, no carbs and only 1% of your DV of sodium. I was wondering why people say you shouldnt drink it; I have heard it causes muscle retention or something like that. Any ways should I drink this at all or on a reward day or never. Thanks

You shouldn't drink it because it's chemical garbage. But if you want to, go for it. One bottle isn't going to hurt.

i agree wit drew, i like the diet stuff but its all chemicals and stuff, but to me chemicals are better then full fat and cals ;) ya i wouldn't recommend having 4 bottles a day but one won't hurt...and the caffeine might give u a lil boost...

Aspartame(sp?) also messes with your insulin levels. Caffeine also isn't good for wight lifters in general.

dammit....drinking water is so boring!


what can you drink besides water? all the "juices" have too much sugar in it and i guess i can forget about diet pop...


what about flavored water?

Don't worry about it.

Caffeine and aspartame should be, quite honestly, the least of your concerns.
