I have heard from more more than one source that drinking diet sodas is a fat habit (see #5). This comes from very good sources and is good advice, but I find that diet sodas, at times, keep me from feeling deprived.
I know they are not super healthy but drinking only water with all my meals, occasionally makes me feel like I'm missing out. I can do that for a while, but I'm likely to end up drinking sweet tea, chocolate milk or juice instead anyway.
Most of the time I drink water with meals (especially at sit down restaurants - weird I know) and I try to limit my intake of sugar substitutes including diet drinks, but I do drink them occasionally when I'm just not in the mood for water again.
How do you feel about diet drinks?
