    I used to be avid DC drinker…until a good friend showed me an article in a health magazine that really changed my thinking. It said that while DC had no calories, the chemicals in it made you crave sugar, which negates the purpose for drinking it. So I tested the theory. I went back to drinking regular Dr Pepper…and guess what? I didn’t have to have dessert at lunch or M&M’s on my desk anymore. I really didn’t crave sweets all the time. And I lost a few pounds, to boot! So, that’s really all I know about the effect of diet sodas.
    Now I just shake my head when I see people drinking a diet coke while gobbling a sugary treat!
