I have heard that diet soda cause bloating and should be avoided on cutting phase. Is it ok to have a couple of cans or no

No calories and no sugar. I don't see a problem.

YES!, I drink that **** in unimaginable amounts when cutting... keeps me sane, and as long as MOST of the time it's caffine free... just don't have too much caffine, drink as much as you want... it wont hurt gains/losses

...JUST DON'T FORGET WATER... It's NOT, I repeat NOT a substitute for good 'ol H20!!!

Well, after learning that the carbonation in sodas, regular and diet alike, can affect protein absorption, I don't think I'll be drinking much soda in the future, regardless of wether I'm trying to gain or cut.

Hmm? Water or Pop
this I got from another post at bb.com

just thought it would be a little informative

Saw these facts around a while ago. Thought they would be worth posting again.


1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated.
(Likely applies to half world population)

2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is
often mistaken for hunger.

3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one's metabolism as much as 3%.

4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington

5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day
could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to
80% of sufferers.

7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory,
trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on
the computer screen or on a printed page.

8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon
cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by
79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.

Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?


1. In many states (in the USA) the highway patrol carries two gallons
of Coke in the truck to remove blood from the
highway after a car accident.

2. You can put a T-bone steak in a bowl of Coke and it will be gone
in two days.

3. To clean a toilet: Pour a can of Coca-Cola into the toilet bowl
and let the "real thing" sit for one hour, then flush clean.
The citric acid in Coke removes stains from vitreous china.

4. To remove rust spots from chrome car bumpers: Rub the bumper with
a rumpled-up piece of Reynolds Wrap aluminum
foil dipped in Coca-Cola.

5. To clean corrosion from car battery terminals: Pour a can of
Coca-Cola over the terminals to bubble away the

6. To loosen a rusted bolt: Applying a cloth soaked in Coca-Cola to
the rusted bolt for several minutes.

7. To bake a moist ham: Empty a can of Coca-Cola into the baking
pan, wrap the ham in aluminum foil, and bake. Thirty
minutes before the ham is finished, remove the foil, allowing the
drippings to mix with the Coke for a sumptuous brown

8. To remove grease from clothes: Empty a can of coke into a load of
greasy clothes, add detergent, and run through a
regular cycle. The Coca-Cola will help loosen grease stains. It will
also clean road haze from your windshield.

For Your Info:

1. The active ingredient in Coke is phosphoric acid. Its pH is 2.8.
It will dissolve a nail in about 4 days. Phosphoric acid
also leaches calcium from bones and is a major contributor to the
rising increase in osteoporosis.

2. To carry Coca-Cola syrup (the concentrate) the commercial truck
must use the Hazardous material place cards reserved
for Highly corrosive materials.

3. The distributors of Coke have been using it to clean the engines
of their trucks for about 20 years!

Now the question is, would you like a glass of water or Coke?

Well, I think its a little controversial at the moment, but I just saw a video claiming that artificial sweeteners can cause you to gain weight instead of loosing it. If you want to see it here is the link:

Hard to believe something that presents so many different sides.
