good morning  
Back when I started my diet, I was drinking 2 regular (non-diet) sodas per day. At that time, I went to 2 pepsi ones with one regular soda on the weekends. I have recently received some information that says when you drink a carbonated beverage, diet or regular, it slows your metabolism for 72 hours. Has anyone else heard this? Today will be my third day carbonation free! I figure it can't hurt me and it just might be good for me. I am drinking more water, which I know is good for me. Just don't ask me to give up my coffee just yet! :-)

Today should be another beautiful Fall day here! We may have some rain coming for the weekend which would also be a good thing! I hope everybody has a great day today!

I heard about the aspartame/slow metabolism thing last year, so...
I quit drinking them for well over 2 months...I was exercising a lot at that time...
I saw absolutely no change at all...
ofcourse, that don't mean it wouldn't work for you, just my 2 cents and I haven't read the links she put yet...but I will!

It don't surprise me that they aren't good for ya though...what is, that's good tasting these days!LOL

Well, I figure I can't go wrong by drinking more water and less soda pop!

True enough!
