    I'm pretty good about everything I eat but Diet Soda is my Bane. I've recently found some stuff that I think will help.

    So they have this stuff "Sparkling Ice" it's carbonated, flavored water with Sucralose instead of Aspartame.

    Now I realize even if the latest studies say these chemicals are safe, they are still chemicals and one more thing to tax the liver with dealing with as opposed to fat loss and healthy function.

    Couple that with the fact that Diet Soda does not do good things to your teeth and there is an excess of Caffeine and if you like Diet Mtn. Dew there are studies that link increased Bromine consumption with certain health issues.

    So, the Sparkling ICE seems to be the lesser of two evils, for now, Next I think I'm going to try to just switch to Sparkling water and a flavored stevia drink additives.

    What do you guys drink (other than just water)?

    Water. I usually keep a bag of lemons in the fridge and sometimes squeeze a wedge of lemon into a glass of ice water.

    Last year, in a hurry at the store, I foolishly grabbed a case of some stuff labeled "lemon water" to put on the boat. Ugh. It was some nasty concoction such as you describe above. Had to pour it down the drain.

    Hose me down w/ H2O, too. Any sugar substitute gives me headaches, which I rarely get. Try some leaves of fresh mint in a jar of good water chilled in the reefer - really refreshing and no calories! Citrus works well too, alone or in combo w/ others. That chemical shit ain't good for you!

    I assure you, mint and citrus are composed entirely of chemicals.

    But damn! I just now mowed and mulched a bunch of mint that was encroaching on the lawn, because I couldn't think of anything specific to do with it. icon_confused.gif

    Hmm, I thought chemicals were invented by Dow, Union Carbide, or Monsanto.
