lol yeah I hear you on that Fiancee. I've switched to diet soda's recently trying to switch cause especially on long raids and such can slurp down a lot of unneeded calories.

There's never a day when I don't have a pitcher of iced tea in the fridge. That's usually my poison of choice, though I've been known to crack open a bottle of Martinelli's when the mood strikes me.

Water or tea. I do have the occasional coke (not diet, nor pepsi etc. Plain old red coca cola) but not very often. I'm actually very accustomed to having water and it's just something that I drink all the time, no plans to change.

I can drink water nonstop as long as it is ice water I know bit weird. I used to be really bad about Cherry Coke man but when you have the sweet nectar of the gods and then its diet version its horrible. At least for me it is.

I hear you Kaos. I've never found a 'diet' soda that didn't taste like sewage.

I don't drink soda of any kind very much any more. I prefer water, juices and tea. Once in a while I break down and snag a cherry coke.

Water or a tea tend to be my drinks of choice, I actually very rarely drink fizzy drinks at all, abit of coke in my jack Daniels or navy rum but thats about the only time.

Y'all know that diet or not, coke/pepsi or pretty much anything is not healthy for you if you just sit around playing videogames, right?

Kaoslion
02-04-2013, 05:50 PM
Well yeah but that wasn't what was really be discussed. When a game first comes out you always put in a lot of hours of game play just a better alternative to what most people drink. kinda a Tongue and Cheek question.

Don't drink soda/pop or anything with "bubbles", I'm drinking water and teas, about it, and for the folks who say "diet" well hate to break it to you but "diet" drink wise is horrible for you :I But I myself will be drinking water, water, and with a little extra water on the side.

Same with me. 90% of the time its just plain water. lol But in my case I don`t need to shed a few pounds, I need to gain a few.

Neither. If I am going to have a soda.. which isn't often i'll drink a normal one. But usually I stick to tea, coffee, water.

Mexican Coke.
Which is really any Coke made with real sugar instead of processed artificial sweeteners. Which includes High Fructose Corn Syrup.

It takes better and actually a bit healthier then those other cokes, plus you're not fooling yourself into thinking you're saving yourself a ton of calories so it's ok to have that extra chocolate cupcake. Remember, a normal serving of Coke, even with the real sugar, is still only about 100 calories. Though admittedly I tend to drink a lot more then a normal serving, but then I don't believe in diets.

When I want a true calorie free alternative to Coke, I go with unsweetened iced tea.

Water, tea, or juice is what I do. Plus I wouldn't touch diet soda, I don't do sweeteners or aspartame.

Sugar (or carbs) are going to negatively affect you in the long run, regardless of what you choose to drink. The sedentary lifestyle that so many of us are accustomed to makes it very easy to snack and binge on sugar or carbs constantly. The body's response to all of that glucose is to produce insulin. Sooner or later, your body may become resistant to the insulin response and *BOOM* diabeetus (you know you read it in Wilford Brimley's voice)!

Check out ketogenic diets, specifically high-fat, low-carb foods. There's a very helpful community over at reddit (/r/keto (www.reddit.com/r/keto)). You can always exercise self-control, even if you can't get to gym.

In any case, regardless of what diet or food you eat, glad to see some nutritional discussion around these parts.

I drink a lot of Vitamin Water when gaming though it's still has a lot of sugar it's better then drinking a soda. But since you asked for soda I'd say I drink Mtn. Dew.

Diet soda makes people crave sugar because of the sweetener in it, so in away can make people gain weight.

Its been proven that the artificial sweeteners in diet soda not only have carcinogenic properties but now they are saying they can actually put you at a higher risk for diabetes as well.

The best thing you can do is to stock up on bottled water keep it nice and cold in a fridge.
Second best is unsweetened 100% fruit juices.

If you absolutely have to have soda look for soda sweetened with real sugar. The problem with soda isn't so much the calories but moderation and High Fructose Corn Syrup.

As Bobby Boucher's mother would say: "High Fructose Corn Syrup is the devil"

If you are looking to lose weight from drinking soda then drink one that is non-diet... Because a non-diet fills your stomach up more. You tend to drink more diet drinks than regular, so technically you aren't helping to lose any pounds...

Jeez, I'm feeling like I'm a horrible person for what I drink.

I'd rather be thought of as a horrible person for watering the sidewalks in front of the nursing home nearby when the temperature drops below freezing.

WRONG C: Diet fills you up yes but the chemicals inside of diet drinks sit inside your stomach longer and take longer to burn out of your system

No I haven't tried that yet. I mean, I know they don't have souls but I never really thought of them as foodstuffs.
