    Not really. Diet soda contains artificial sweetner. This causes bloat in most individuals.

    Just to let everyone know. If you can get RC diet cola, it is sweetend with splenda. I was walking around the grocery store and now I look at every single lable before I buy I discoverd this.

    Diet Rite!! (is the name of Diet RC)

    That is my choice for diet soda... no aspartame...

    however, no caffeine... maybe i should pickup some powder caffeine and add a nice dose... hmm... =)

    I've never had a problem with sweetners and bloat. Its the carbonation that causes the bloat if any. I drink several kinds of different Diet Soda's and I never worry about it.

    Why not Vanity? It is better than drinking regular soda. Before I started working out and dieting I and im not kidding I used to drink a 12 pack of regular coke every single day. Now I drink diet and only one two liter every 2 to 3 days.

    There are far worse things to eat or drink IMO and if having a diet soda or 2 a day helps keep you on your diet because it satisfies that sweet tooth then by all means have the diet soda. Its one of the things that helps me. I didn't drop diet soda until 4 weeks out from my competition

    Jodi you need to check into Coca Cola Anonymous pronto.

    I'm not saying its a replacemement for water by anymeans and you should still drink 5-6L of water a day. The diet soda is used an as aid IMO to keep from the sugary treats. I also chew about 10 pieces of sugarless gum a day
