    Christian Durus Telamon3 years ago Pop has been the hardest thing for me to find a replacement for. Artificial sweeteners give me a headache and have a gross after taste which limits the choices out there. I have cut way back, but still have one can or cup a day (down from around 4 liters). ... 21

    Kristy Montgomery6 months ago Learning that soda is basically acid with a lot of sugar has helped me stay away from them! I’ll have a sprite once in a while which is the least acidic. 4

    westfield903 years ago I quit drinking soda too and I think that largely was responsible for my successful 33lb weight loss in 4 months. I haven’t missed it and can’t even now think I used to drink a bottle of coke or spring every single day 7

    OfficialxSIlentrylast year I have decided to stop drinking soda today. everyday I find my self buying a 20z soda can at work or getting refills every couple hours. I need to stop its getting out of hand so that's my story of how i ended up here xD ... 7

    Jester4353 years ago Good Products I have used to eliminate sugar, calories, and still get my 120oz of water in. Scivation and Gfuel are great substitutes. I dont drink coffee or tea, so these products are great for caffeine, but no carbonation. ... 1

    Gary Scott3 years ago Have you tried Hint Water? It comes in both gas and non-gas versions. I'm particularly partial to the watermelon flavor. It's a zero calorie drink and with a little effort you can find a limited selection locally for $1/bottle. ... 3

    xneweyesx3 years ago Eh, I still just drink the diet drinks and I enjoy them. I try to stick to the caffiene free versions after /3:00pm, and only have them on the weekends/or if eating out. I used to have the diet drinks pretty much every day, but now I pretty much only drink water during the week (I also still drink plenty of water at the weekend too). I don't drink coffee or tea, so those are the other two low calorie beverages out. I feel reluctant to pay for bottled water and it's a bit weird socially if you go our for coffee etc. whatever and then you just ask for a tap water and nothing else. I do sometimes just drink tap waters at dinners out, it's not so weird if you're also buying a meal. ...

    razorbackpulp3 years ago I would substitute calorie drinks with water and those Walmart Great Value or Crystal Light packets. I also would use Mio. If your ditching artificial sweaters, that may not be the route. For carbonated drinks, I occasionally would get Sprite Zero and mix in my favorite calorie free sweetener substitute like I mentioned above. I’m not sure that this helps, but it can help to curb those cravings without adding any calories. I honestly don’t miss soda. Gatorade is what I like. I just allow myself one a week. Typically, I drink it over an entire weekend though. ...

    Bonkers McGeelast year I've been trying to cold turkey the sodas. It's like crack. After a day I start to get physically ill and get the worst taste in my mouth. I don't know what's causing the craving, if it's the sugar, the caffeine, or the carbonation. The only step I've been able to take is switching from the 12 oz cans to the small ones and convinced myself they taste better.
    I can see transitioning to diet sodas, but the ones I have tried make me gag. What diet sodas do not taste terrible?

    Rick Martin3 years ago never drank regular soda, but drank a ton of diet coke -----and quit it a year or more ago and it responsible for my small transformation.....but light beer is now a culprit......seems to be my afternoon reward for hard exercise (200-300 cals total, not terribly bad)....but probably has the same result as soda, right? ...
