my challenge
I've always drank diet soda. This challenge has been awesome. Not only have I noticed that I don't feel so bloated from the carbonation in the soda but I've also noticed a huge difference ...

Propel zero energy packets
I add this to my water, no carbs, no calories, tastes great but not over-powering in taste. Done with soda!

Goodbye, Sodas!
I've already been doing this for a couple of days now. My go-to substitute is Unsweet Tea, sweetened with Stevia. Trying to implement more water.

been giving soda up for lent 2 years in a row..
Try Perrier. Also i bought a soda stream and used real water and bring it to work. It really helps me eliminate soda craving.
