>>20003216 Drink coke zero, or any kind of zero calorie diet soda. If you can handle the taste it's not too bad for you, just make sure you drink plenty of water too. Also you don't need to quit caffeine as well, it'll just make it harder to stop drinking coke if you avoid it

I haven't had a can of pop in nearly two years. Every couple months I'll try it and it's constantly just tasted worse. As far as cutting it, I would suggest weening yourself off of it. Set yourself a limit of only one a day for a week, then one every other day, then try to drop that shit. That's only to ease your body off it chemically if you're addicted... if you can just cut it, do. I work in a grocery store (part time, student job) and whenever I see people buying large quantities, it disgusts me. It's essentially chemicals plus water plus sugar, and I think that's the main reason I cut it out (also cals and shit I guess). Currently working on cutting cream/sugar out of my coffee and tea.

>>20003254 Juices and (sweetened) tea both have about as much sugar as sodas and aren't that much better for you anyway. I hate the taste of water, tap and bottled, but when I cut I force myself to drink water. Normally I have a can of soda a day and drink other stuff like cranberry juice, so I knock out a ton of calories that way. Also if you drink a lot of soda I might try and drink coffee or at least do something so I'm not cutting out all caffeine suddenly.

I don't see how someone can make it if they refuse to drink water. I drink 2 liters a day in water without any exercise. Add a liter or more if I hit the treadmill.

>>20003405 Oh I forgot. I read a fact the other day that if it wasn't for aseculfame (i don't know, something like that) the drink would be way too sweet, and your body wouldn't be able to handle the sugar. Soda companies know the sugar is the reason you keep addicted, so they simply cancel the excessive amount out with a chemical, so you can handle it and stay addicted.

I don't understand, how the hell can anybody hate water. Fucking water! OP, best way to fix your problem? Stop being a pussy - complaining about god damn water - stop buying coke or any sugary drinks for that matter, and just chug bottles of water every day. Just STOP. Exercise a speck of willpower for once and quit that sugary rubbish.

>>20003216 I used to drink a minimum of a case a day of Dr Pepper. A MINIMUM. IIf I was hungover, easy 2 case day (sundays were BAD in terms of consumption). I tapered down over about 6 months to half that. I don't drink coffee or tea, never have. At that point quit cold. Had headaches, felt tired, shakes sometimes...but that went away afetr about 3 weeks...haven't had a soda or any caffiene since. And for the record, I drank that much for probably 10-11 years before stopping. If you really want to quit - quit. It may not be easy, but you can do it...

I have been without regular soda intake for about 3 years now. I drink 6 liters of water every day and it tastes great. Cola and other sodas however taste like the utter shit they are.. the overwhelming sweetness feels wrong. Soda was the single biggest culprit in making me fat and quitting it was as benefical to me as was quitting smoking. That shit is liquid candy and should be treated as such.

Drink filtered water, dont drink from the tap unless its filtered. It helps if you have a fridge that dispenses water since that shit has a filter as well. Also you dont need to outright quit soda, just gradually cutback. Have maybe 1 can a meal then 1 a day at most, treat it as a treat and dont drink it like you would water. Really water is superior in every way, it actually hydrates you, tastes pretty fucking good and its relatively low cost compared to soda, also no shit fucking after taste unless you drink tap water.

>>20008516 >Aspartame, which is known as NutraSweet, does all sort of bad stuff to the point it's almost as if you‟ve seen nothing convincing, you aren't really looking that hard. The number one source of complaints to the USFDA Food Safety Hotline comes from NutraSweet. If you look at the history of how NutraSweet or aspartame was even approved in the US, it was twice rejected by the USFDA's own scientists as being unsafe for human consumption because it turns into formaldehyde as well as a couple other toxic substances including wood alcohol. The way it got approved is that the head of the company that manufactures this stuff, G. D. Searle, moved over to a management position in the FDA. He vetoed the scientists' disapproval, forced it into production, then left the FDA a couple years later. You might have heard of this guy, his name is Rumsfeld. I'm not joking. This is not rumor and conspiracy. This is well-documented fact. You can find it pretty much if you Google any of those names and NutraSweet, G. D. Searle. Since then, the manufacturers of NutraSweet have sold it off to some other company, but Searle is the one who took it to market. TL,DR: Aspartame is toxic and people should have gone to jail for selling it.
