  • Diet Sodas!

    Well, I finally eliminated diet sodas and replaced them with H2O and.....WOW! It has been about 3 weeks now and I have gotten even leaner. I had hit a plateau for quite awhile when I got down to that pesky few pounds of fat left on me. I have not changed anything else nutrition or workout wise either. I guess I should have listened to you guys sooner. That artificial sweetener crap does trick your body into an insulin spike I guess. As a wise man named Homer once said.....DOH!

    Oh by the way, it has been awhile since I have been on the forums here so.....WASSSUUUUUUUUUUUUP PEEPS!!!!

          If there is only one piece of advice I wish everyone I know would take it is to quit drinking that toxic sludge. I stopped drinking it over three years ago, and I can honestly say that the very thought of it makes me sick. My twin sister will down cans and cans of Dr. Pepeer. Needless to say, she has battled kidney stones and I have not. Genetics, my arse.

                I am still trying to kick my habit. Thanks for sharing that it has worked for you in getting leaner. I need to stop and it is so hard. Giving up wheat was easy....giving up Diet Coke...not so much.

                  I actually quit all sodas about a month before becoming primal - they always gave me nasty skin (spots).
                  Character is defined by what you do when no one else is looking.

                    Congrats! I'm about to go down that road myself. I've gone from 8-10 a day to 1 a day and now it's time to give them up for good. Water gives me nasty heartburn so I'm still trying to figure out what to do about that.

                      I can't really believe the water is what is giving you heartburn...I think it's more likely your body purging the chemicals induced from all the soda...Just my 2 pesos!

                        Neither water nor your body "purging chemicals in the soda" (that doesn't actually happen BTW) will give you heartburn.

                          That could be. All I know is that every time I drink a glass of water I pretty much immediately get major heartburn. When I don't drink water, I don't get it. I'm going to give it a go anyway.

                            Congrats! I quit diet sodas years ago and once I decided to avoid HFCS, any soda was a rare treat. Now it only takes a few sips of soda (cane sugar) a few times a year for me to be done with it.

                              It has been 11 days with no diet soda. This is a first because I used to pound them.
