Btw, I wouldn't recommend losing weight by switching to diet soda. All I was saying is that I don't think it's necessarily bad for you.
I recently lost about 30 lbs and it had very little to do with drinking diet soda or not. Sensible diet and exercise are the keys.
yeah my old boss in Australia was like that. Supersize her McDonalds and have it with Diet Coke like that somehow made up for the gallon of grease she was going to ingest
