I cannot stand the taste of Diet Pop. I would rather drink it because I am addicted to soda & it makes me chunky but it just doesnt compare to my delicious regular soda. I have tryed the ones people tell me taste like the regular but to me they all leave an after taste. The worst of all time to me? Tab. Uck! :)

i have heard diet give "empty calories" so it actually makes you eat more. the good thing i know of about diet drinks is there is less sugar. (excellant if you are a diabetic.) one way to lose weight is to buy smaller plates so you have smaller portians when you eat. also, you shouldnt eat straight from the bag or box, fill small baggies of pretzels or popcorn.

ya I know what you mean, so far there is only one diet soda that I will drink. Other then that they all taste funny to me. I will stick to drinking my regular soda in moderation.

After having drank diet over a period of time, I think the sugared pops taste funny.

I grew up drinking diet soda. It was the only kind my mom bought. I drink diet about 95% of the time now. I will sometimes have a regular coke. Most of the time I drink Diet Rite or Coke Zero.

I know that the taste takes some getting used to. And I got used to it. I also lost almost 6 lbs drinking diet. took me about 3 weeks. Now the taste of regular is too sweet. My fav now is diet dr pepper. Then diet pepsi. I will soon just go to water and tea. Sugar makes you heavy. ASPARTAME makes a migraine condition worse!

I'd choose Fresca as the worst of all time! But I don't drink much sode as it fills me up quickly and then I don't eat, but within 30 minutes, I 'm hungry again! But when I do drink it, I drink diet simple cause I can't handle that sweet sweet regular version!

I can't stand diet sodas either. I don't drink soda anymore cause of all the sugar and the ingredients are bad for us all to drink. Have you every been in the health section in your grocery store? I like to buy the spritzer drinks that have juice, and izzy's, and other drinks don't remember names though. I like them cause they are good for me but they remind me of drinking soda. While I am drinking them I forget its healthy and thick its a soda pop.

I have been drinking diet for so long that the regular stuff tastes nasty to me, excessively sweet and thick and syrupy - which I don't like. They are not refreshing to me at all. If you are talking Tab with saccharine - that was nasty - that was the nastiest of the nasty.

I cant stand diet either. In fact i hate it! I think it also leaves an after taste in my mouth. I also think it has like a watered down taste. I would rather drink water then drink diet.

I have not drink Diet Pop. I have drank diet pepsi and diet coke. I like diet pepsi and diet coke. Here regular sodas are available than the diet soda. I like taking lemon juice mixed with soda. It is my favorite drink. I think diet pop, diet, coke, diet pepsi, etc have less calories.
