    i dont know how it affects cutting except i do know that if you drink to much for too long you will get BAD headaches when you stop drinking it. You literally become dependent on it to prevent the headaches cuz of the caffene. Also, I've read that soda drinking makes us hungry, which can never help cutting. I could be wrong on that second part but im pretty damn sure about it.

    Although they don't use regular refined sugar there are sugar substitutes. Most diet drinks use a product called Phenalylanine which is the base for Asparteme. The long term over consumption of Asparteme in drinks such as Diet Snapple have been shown to increase anxiety alot. It has been an ongoing debate for some time. Not too mention the sodium content is still pretty high if you are consuming alot of soda, even diet.

    Are you serious, 2Liters a day

    Yes, too much artificial sweetner will hinder your results. You don't need to give up the diet soda but most of us only drink a can or 2 a day and don't have problems cutting. BUT 2 LITERS - That's a bit much.

    the ortho phosphoric acid contained in soft drinks can excelerate skeletal calcium losses by leaching..
    William F. Buckley describes a conservative as, "someone who stands athwart history, yelling Stop." - and then proceeds to drag civilization back to times best left in history's dungheap.
