    theres alot of body builders that drink coffee before workouts for a boost of energy i guess, u could replace the pop with coffee, in moderation. 4 litres a day is bad for u , u should be drinking 4 litres of water a day. just my opinion tho.

    Try to quit cold turkey buddy. If you taper down or set limits you are gonna start bargaining with yourself, "like oh I'll walk another mile" and then it turns into " I didn't have any this weekend so I can have two today".

    After a while without pop you will be able to enjoy one and anymore than that will taste too sweet and the sticky nasty syrup will make you thirsty for water. It might be hard but just don't drink pop... it may be the very worst thing you can do diet wise.

    they say that 0.1% of radiation is in coke and pepsi. It must be the aspartame inside those drink. I would stay away from aspartame look it up, it's some deadly shit.

    Try Langers juices, No aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, or any other bullshit, just about 4-5 basic ingredients

    In my case it's both the Caffeine and the Sugar that i craved for I used to drink over a gallon a day of this.

    In the morning eat a apple, or organic fruit juice... if you feel the need for sugar have a fruit fruits are tons of sugar but still a healthier choice than cola.

    As for the caffeine part stretch it as far as you can don't have any in the morning wait until in the afternoon...

    I still get power crashes in the afternoon at between 4-5 I always get tired I solve that by having a banana and getting my as to the gym... it gets my blood moving and after the work out I'm just not tired not sleepy tired I'm just have sore muscles and can barely move but I always feel energetic up until my bedtime

    It's good that you are cutting out sugared drinks, fact is they're load with calories. A can of Coke is about 150 Cals. If you had 2 cans of coke that's almost 300Cals. that's pretty much a calorie amount of a small meal.

    If you had 4+ cans of coke during a course of a day(some people do drink this much soda, even more), would you cut out 1 or 2 meals during the day? obviously not, so all this soda is gonna do is create a huge calorie surplus in your daily calorie intake.

    Because this is about loosing fat and not a discussion about the health affects about artificial sweeteners. I'd say Look for alternatives to sodas. Most preferably water. If you can't drink water I'ld recommend DIET SODAs if you go to your supermarket you'd find heaps of flavors: diet coke, coke zero, pepsi max, diet lemonade, diet ginger ale, etc, etc.

    What i do for sugar cravings is i make my own lemonade with lemon juice+water+ stevia. and I eat heaps of diet jelly(jello). Sugar cravings for me was a psychological thing, so if ate a lot of diet products that tasted sweet it really helps the craving

    switch to coffee! It doesn't taste good, but I've found its much cheaper, and it's nice to have it hot and ready when I wake out of bed, just set the programmer on the coffee maker.

    Caffeine is an appetite suppressant. Personally I go with diet energy drinks. Monster absolute zero is amazing. 0 Cals, can't really go wrong. I've used these drinks to keep hunger at bay while losing 110lb.

    And as for the sugar vs aspartame. I don't know what aspartame does, but I'm sure 60g of sugar per can is worse for the dieter.

    Best of luck

    WHAT!?? WHO says coffee doesn't taste good!?? lol

    Def sounds like you are having caffeine withdrawals, replacing coke caffeine with coffee caffeine is prob not the best way to go. I think toughing it out for a few days with some headache meds (excedrine or tylenol) and lots of water to flush your system and you should be fine.

    i quit drinking pepsi and coke about 8 years ago and havnt touched it since!! i drink water 24/7 and any flavoured juice i can find that tastes good

    but i was always able to quit things just like that, smoked for years and one morning i said i had enough and never looked back also

    ide suggestion having a bottle of water on you all the time and when your craving it take a zip of water so you get used to drinking it, your cravings will go away

    I was drinking diet soda a long time before I became really committed to improving my health and physique.

    And, when I decided diet soda wasn't even in my best interest, I stopped buying soda when I went grocery shopping. I went cold turkey.

    I substituted it with coffee in the AM or pre workout. I drank green tea. And I drank lots and lots of water.

    As time past, the craving faded away.

    I never drink soda. I can't believe how people seem to have trouble going a day without 7 cans... lol

    Seriously soda is pointless.

    Drink coffee. It's good for you and will not make you a lardo

    Diet soda is even worse hahaha It makes me laugh when I see a tubby drinking a diet soda explaining how healthy it is to me


    I drink snapple once In a while(2-3x a week), it has pretty high sugar about 40g per 16oz bottle. Though there are no preservatives or artificial flavors so its pretty healthy.
    But on the daily I consume 2 gallons of water. Coffee, Milk and orange juice are pretty much the only things I drink other than water.

    It's funny I had 3 cousins brother and sisters and 2 of them drank soda every day and the 3rd one NEVER drank a soda. She was very skinny and always has been. She is the leanest and healthiest. The other 2 that drink soda are slightly overweight. They are not skinny at all. The diets of my cousins are pretty similar. They all eat the same stuff since they live together.

    This just goes to show that drinking soda causes a maintenance in weight
    or fat gain (mostly fat gain)

    i had the same problem giving up diet coke. then i found out how bad aspartame is for you so i switched back to regular coke. then i realized that the only real reason i drank soda was not for the taste but that cold carbonation fizz. so i started drinking carbonated water ..... drink coffee or 3 cups green tea per day to take care of the caffiene with drawl. and switch to soda water. you'll be solid.

    This .... and maybe add fresh lime or lemon juice or a natural sweetener.

    But you're right, sometimes I just need a hit of diet coke or pepsi.

    The way I did is to buy some Splenda and just drink some tea with it and it tastes even better, atleast to me.

    Ah! Ice cold Coke! Love it!

    Yes, that's on my list of things to cut out. And reading through this makes me think that the cold carbonated fizz is what I like.

    I spent a week in a health far a few years ago - no coffee. Everyone got the "Hopewood headache" about day three. Luckily there was an espresso bar not too far away - we sneaked out like school kids.

    The headache is the caffeine addiction. It will last three days or so.

    Cold turkey is the only way.

    The substitutes don't work for me, I drink only water. I do have one soda a week with my 1 weekly cheat meal.

    Two words. Sparkling water. Inused to hate the taste but it's awesome now. If you drink it fast it gives you same effect as pop!

    basically its been linked to brain lesions its made up of methanol which is pure alcohol nd can lead to blindness they did a study on 50 people drinking diet sodas with aspartame and 50 drinking the standard no apsartame drink and 37 of the 50 reported that the diet soda gave them severe bouts of dizziness, blurred vision, sensitivity to light, head aches and stomach cramps whilst those on the normal sodas just reported lil sugar spikes here and there the cut and thrust is ASPARTAME is TOXIC
