One of my greatest internal battles–Diet Coke. I love it so much. And it has such a deeply-seeded place in my life.
It gets me through afternoons with three classes in a row, or picks me up before lax practice
It is perfect with Mexican food (or really any lunch food)
Great for road trips
Delicious on the beach (where I will be in two weeks!)
I can’t decide if it’s the caffeine or the fizz, but either way, I’m an addict.
But maybe it’s bad for you?
In my extensive research on the health problems/benefits I found the Mayo Clinic’s take:
Diet soda isn’t likely to hurt you, but healthier options abound.
Well said. I appreciate their lack of sensationalism and their balanced approach. However, I might try to give it up for Lent…and replace it with La Croix…
