Diet Sodas - Can They Be A Problem for Weight Loss?
Thanks for the info, everyone. I guess I'm off the diet sodas. Only recently did I find their taste tolerable. Water is so bland, though Dasani tastes better than the others. I have Soda Stream, so maybe I'll fizz up my water and add lemon. Hopefully, the carbonation isn't a problem.

drnisley, I'm going to try the Stash green tea and chocolate stevia. I have stevia, but didn't notice that they made the chocolate kind. That might be just what I need to replace the sodas.

Diet Sodas - Can They Be A Problem for Weight Loss?
I agree. I have totally cut out the diet sodas and I am back to water. The diet sodas helped me eat less, but I'll have to adjust.

Diet Sodas - Can They Be A Problem for Weight Loss?
For the past two months I recorded my intake, except for four days. I ate around 1000 to 1200 calories on most days, never over my RDI, and recorded exactly what I ate. Even on the four days that I was too busy to record my intake, I still ate about 1000 to 1200 calories. In the past, I would have lost twice the amount of weight that I actually lost. Also, my net calories showed I should have lost twice the amount that I lost. I found one problem with my intake. One food that I ate had more calories than I thought (tricky food label). But that was minor.

The only change in my diet from the past until two months ago is that I started drinking diet sodas - 2 or 3 a day. Because of the 0 calories, I didn't even record them.

Has anyone experienced that diet sodas can slow down weight loss?
