    The darker cola's have phosphorous in them which can leech Calcium from you bones. Some diet sodas contain caffeine. Those are the only things I can really think of that might affect someone. I personally drink diet soda every once in a while just for the caffeine without any of that sugar.

    I think becuase its not organic or natural, having a lot of fake stuff in there, it can slightly effect your insulin sensativity.

    go ahead. especially since it gets rid of the monotony of water. obviously you can't drink it as a water substitute but every once in a while its fine.

    I am not a fan of aspartame. For me, that would be my biggest concern.

    Nope. You might feel bloated from the carbonation, though.

    Aspartame has no effect on insulin in non-diabetic persons.

    How can phosphorous leech calcium from your bones?
    The only thing that I know does that is inadequate calcium and vitamin D intake.

    85% of all phosphorous is in our bones! 99% of all our calcium is in our bones as well. Its practically a 1:1 ratio.

    If anything it should help. And I dont think pop has nearly enough phsophourous to do any harm.

    Really, the only way a person can overdose on a mineral or nutrient is if they take supplements. Otherwise its quite hard (well you could get vitamin A toxcicity from eating polar bear liver).

    Way down this road, in a gym far away, a young man was once heard to say, "I've repped high and I've repped low, No matter what I do my legs won't grow."

    He tried leg extensions, leg curls, and leg presses, too. Trying to cheat these sissy workouts he'd do. From the corner of the gym where the big men train, Through a cloud of chalk and the midst of pain.

    Where the big iron rides high and threatens lives, Where the noise is made with big forty fives. A deep voice bellowed as he wrapped his knees, A very big man with legs like trees.

    Laughing as he snatched another plate from the stack, Chalking his hands and monstrous back, Said "Boy stop lying and don't say you've forgotten, Trouble with you is you ain't been SQUATTIN"

    If you like diet pop, drink it. Simple. ANYTHING can be bad for you when overdone.. whether it be egg whites, chicken, or diet pop.

    You might be right about the soda not having enough phosphorus to actually do anything. I was relaying what my registered dietitian teach told us.

    Here's some info from the University of Maryland: Medical Center

    "As dietary phosphorous increases, the need for additional calcium rises as well. The delicate balance between calcium and phosphorous is necessary for proper bone density and prevention of osteoporosis."

    And further

    "The typical Western diet, however, is imbalanced in these minerals. Most people who consume this type of diet consume roughly two to four times more phosphorus than calcium. For example, meat and poultry contain 10 to 20 times as much phosphorus as calcium, and carbonated beverages such as colas have as much as 500 mg of phosphorus in one serving. When there is more phosphorus than calcium in the system, the body will draw on calcium stored in bones. This can lead to reduced bone mass (namely, osteopenia or osteoporosis) that makes bones brittle and fragile."

    Hence increasing osteoclast activity, causing the release of stored calcium from the bones.

    Aspartame is not a sugar alcohol, not even close.

    Sugar alcohols are usually in things like sugar free candy. Your body cannot metabolize sugar alcohols like normal sugar and therefore they pass through mostly whole and un-metabolized (if that's a word). Your body will sometimes compensate by adding more water to the bowl mixture.. and you can end up getting the runs from eating too much food containing sugar alcohols. (That's another funny story from my nutrition professor).
