Diet Coke is 99% Water? Cool!

I am not proud of this…

I drink at least 6 diet cokes a day. Sometimes more. I’m a certified personal trainer…I know better, but now that I’m not working as a trainer, I do it anyway.

I also exercise a lot. 1-2 hours a day, and more when it’s warm and I’m cycling. I keep thinking I should drink more water, that I’m probably perpetually dehydrated, but there is nothing better than a really cold diet coke (I try to put it in the freezer for a few minutes before I drink it). Not diet pepsi, not diet iced tea or lemonade, it has to be DIET COKE–in a can is the best.

Soooo….99% water? At least I know I’m getting my fluids…

I wonder if I get any benefit from them before I pee them all out?

    You are a bad bad girl. I gave up pop about 6 months ago. I have one on rare occasions but have been pretty good about not indulging any more.

    I know! I have gone off of them in the past…for different reasons. After making it through the fog of caffeine addiction, I really didn’t notice a difference in how I felt. Did you drink diet “pop” (here in Tennessee we call them cokes or sodas), or the sugar kind? I only like diet coke, not pepsi or anything else. I like to think of myself as a connoisseur!

    Only diet really. Pepsi and Moutain Dew. And I only did it for the caffeine. I am not a coffee drinker but I do now drink some tea since giving up pop, ah, soda. 🙂

    Have a tried Coke zero? It’s the best! My husband talked me off all artificial sweeteners for years but I recently gave up real Coke due to the sugar. I didn’t like diet Coke anymore. I love zero. Barely different than the real thing.

    Ever since I gave up real coke for “Tab” in the early 80’s, I can’t stand the taste of the real thing. So Coke Zero doesn’t appeal to me. I like the artifical taste with bubbles. Oh well…
