I have pretty much been staying away from soda/pop and doing more water but there are times when I really crave the Diet Coke with Lime or the Cherry Diet Coke. I don't care much for the regular high octane Diet Coke so for me, it's Diet Pepsi when I don't have a flavoring. Do you know what annoys me? (well, several things but I'll get to the point) … I hate when you go to a pop machine and you have a choice of Diet Pepsi or Diet Pepsi. Come on, vending machine Gods… you can do better for the millions of diabetics out there! I am ready to write my congressman, senator or President to change the rules for vending machines. And it's really not just beverages that are unfriendly to diabetics. We should have saner choices available in our vending machines. It is always a surprise (shock) to get something from a vending machine and then get to look at the nutritional labels. There have been many "how bad can it be?" products that I have selected in a pinch only to wonder if Sara Lee had her hands in the recipe. I try to avoid vending machines by keeping healthier snacks at the office, in the car and around the house. So, tell me, are you a Coke or Pepsi addict???
