I don't know about you, but I used to drink a LOT of diet soda. Ever since my diabetes diagnosis I made the switch. Removing several tsp of high fructose corn syrup per 12 oz can made blood sugar management much easier. Plus, eliminating that sugar load can help with reducing weight gain. I got used to the flavor of artificial sweetener real quick. Ever since then, if I do choose to drink a regular soda for whatever reason, I have a real hard time with how the sugar makes me feel. I've cut back a ton on my diet soda intake, and I've felt all the better because of it. I find coffee to be a great replacement, giving me the caffeine boost I want with reduced sweetness.
What about you? What's your relationship with diet soda?
