I used to be a diet soda addict. In college, instead of displaying empty beer bottles like the guys down the hall, my roommates and I proudly showcased empty bottles of diet soda. We were obsessed, and the more I drank, the more I wanted it. Fortunately, after college I traded the late nights and diet soda at breakfast for eight hours of sleep and more water. Even now that I’m working, and home with two young children, I have more energy than I did in college, and I know it’s because I’m taking care of myself. Here are just a few of the changes you could experience when you put the diet soda down. Diet soda seems harmless, but it’s doing some damage. Not only is it affecting your internal organs, it’s actually changing your eating patterns. The Vitamin Shoppe nutritionist Jaclyn Jacobsen spoke with me about the many risks of drinking diet soda.

Soda addiction diet how to break consider that you are
My little thing was diet soda. I had a brand of choice, and I always wanted to drink from a can for maximum coldness. Never with a straw, I wanted to plant my lips on the can like an extended kiss. And I lived for that kkk-shhhew sound of the can popping open. Years after kicking the habit, hearing that sound will kick off a reaction. Pavlov, you knew your stuff.
