    Bull$hit. I probably drink less than a 6-pack of Coke (regular) a year and if you can't tell a difference with Diet Coke your taste buds are fokked. :D

    the main point is, if you eat healthily enough and exercise enough, you shouldn't have to cut corners with diet stuff. If you do have to use diet stuff, eat healthier and exercise more.

    the calories in regular soda are useless, tho. besides you soda taste snobs (kinda like being a poop texture snob, imo) there's no real argument for non-diet sodas.

    If hating the taste of diet soda makes me a "taste snob" then I guess that's what i am. I guess Im also a water snob since I dont drink urine.

    Diet soda is one of those products that was created first, then they had to engineer a problem for it to solve.

    Sorry, what now? The subject in question is sucralose. The subject of that paper is aspertame. The abstract even states:

    So, no, it's not hype or speculation, but it's also not relevant.

    Here, you want some data on sucralose?
    http://www.cfsan.fda.gov/~lrd/fr980403.html

    I'm not saying it's definitely a bad thing, I'm just suggesting that caution isn't such an irrational idea, since some of it definitely is metabolized and absorbed.

    If you actually must drink diet 'soda' as you seppos call it then I find it helpful to circumvent the taste issue by mixing it with moderate amounts of fermented sugar cane.

    "Derogatory" is what passes for politeness in Australia.

    Any chemical that comes with an MSDS should not go into food as far as I'm concerned. Ever.
    Does Aspertane and/or Splenda??

    I didn't read the whole thread, but I have to say I actually prefer diet depending on the soda.

    Diet Mt Dew isn't as syrupy tasting to me. Same goes for Diet Vault, but I can't seem to find that much these days.

    Diet Pepsi MAX is also rather good, and Coke Zero isn't bad either.

    Regular Diet Coke is nasty, as is Diet Pepsi. But blend 1/2 Diet Cherry Pepsi with 1/2 regular Pepsi and it's very tasty.

    This^^

    I don't usually drink soda period, but when I do, it's usually diet. Because IMO it tastes better. But we're talking a few times a year here, so I probably shouldn't even be posting in this thread.

    I've switched to drinking almond milk almost exclusively.

    I usually have a hard time taking anything on that website seriously, but I checked out the related links and this is ridiculous. I don't have as much of a problem with putting those chemicals in the milk, but to do so without informing the consumer about it on the label is just wrong. Apparently the current definition of 'milk' means no artificial sweeteners, and they are trying to redefine it to include them.

    Same here. Recently my girlfriend even started making it herself on occasion, then we know exactly what is in it.

    I hadn't seen how easy it was until that, but I go through a gallon of milk every 4/5 days so converting that to almonds wouldn't be cheap...
