    Mountain dew has more sugar than coke.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I think one reason I never got hooked on soda was that before aspartame, 0 calorie soda was disgusting. Also, back in my really strict calorie counting days, I once noticed that a can (12 oz) of soda had 150 calories. Since I knew that there weren't any nutrients, and I knew that a teaspoon of sugar had about 16 calories, it wasn't hard to see what soda really was - carbonated sugar water - and 9+ teaspoons of sugar to boot. It just seemed like a waste of my money.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    I was CONVINCED sugar was almost everything the human body needed to run well. Sugar, a flintstone vitamin, and noodles. Thought I was covered.

    Almost none. Didn't grow up with it. Never developed a taste for it once I was exposed to it. Soda burns my throat. Ick.

    Might be a generational thing. I grew up in the three squares, "don't ruin your appetite with candy," era.

    No, my parents were just abjectly clueless - bottom of the barrel poverty, believe in ghosts, etc.

    Never had the habit. When I was a kid, i'd occasionally drink Diet coke because it wasn't as sweet as the others, but then I just stopped liking the taste whatsoever.

    Sometimes as a kid, a 12 pack of pepsi a day sometimes...sometimes room temp. No 24 packs back then. As an adult, not as much, but often had a coke at hand, but usually diet.

    2 liters/day? Weak. I was easily downing a cube (24pk) a day of dew.

    Gone since 1984 when I developed symptoms of a brain tumor... all clear, and caused by Aspartame (1-2 cans/day). I find the taste of soda so unappealing; real sugar, HFCS or other.

    Congratulations to all of you that have quit, and "keep trying" to all of you that are still working on quitting.
