    So, I'm having a craving for pop right now. I normally never drink it, except to chase. How bad is it really for you? Like would it affect my mile time drastically?

    One soda will definitely not drastically affect your run time.
    Unless that one soda is in a 100 gallon bottle.

    Since you called it by it's proper name, you are allowed to have one can.

    It's always good to eat something bad once in a while, like McDicks!! At least I think it is...

    I like diet Dr. Pepper when I'm craving soda. I used to have a wicked addiction as a teenager, probably drank a liter a day :/

    I've switched to S. Pellegrino with a wedge of lemon. It's delicious and it's just sparkling mineral water. I don't have it every day, but only when i have a craving for pop. Now I don't icon_smile.gif

    I thought this was about a music genre, not about soda.

    I finally gave up soda over the past year. I was up to two 20-ounce bottles of Coke a day, and packed on 30 pounds of fat inside of 3 years. I switched to Pepsi Throwback and Jones Cola and got off the HFCS, eventually weaning down to one 12-ounce can a day, then every other day, then once a week, substituting water and caffeine supplements to curb headaches. Now I don't need anything but water, which has done wonders for my abs.

    I occasionally enjoy a soda every once in a while, but as a treat, not as my daily fluid.

    No one I know says "pop" in my area. A lot of us say "soda." Yet the map says "pop" has a 50-80% usage rate. Oh well.

    Yes it is. I wonder what people in the "Other" sections call it.

    IIIIIIIIIIIII said^ The 'others' call it junk.

    Me included!
    One man's "junk" is another man's pleasure.

    ...or something like that...

    Everywhere in the country if you say "pop" or "soda" people are going to know what you mean. In most parts of the country outside of the south, if you say "Coke", you have a good chance of hearing, "We don't have that. Is Pepsi ok?"
