Am currently bulking so not a massive problem at the moment but does anyone know if the artificial flavours/chemicals & acids etc. in drink like diet coke, pepsi max, diet dr pepper etc. lead to water retention?
I must confess I have a severe addiction to pepsi max, was drinking around 2litres per day but have since curbed this addiciton slightly, only drinking it at weekends (so 5 days per week clean).
I have read about the concept of drink water to lose water but does this apply to diet drinks or drinks with sweetners such as splenda, aspartame etc.
Reps for useful info...
