Hi everyone! do you like to drink coke? how many liters can you drink in one day? I only drink one liter at most and wait for three days or more before i get to drink again. how about others?

I try not to pig out when I drink soda, but one time I drank 2 liters because I won it at church, and I didn't want to drag it home. I was not feeling well after that.

another thing i've noticed after drinking a lot of coke is that i couldn't sleep easily as if i could stay awake the whole night that is why i wait for days before drinking again. i do not want to stay awake one day feeling exhausted for lack of sleep. it is rare that i drink 2 liters but i might as well try it only that i would have to fast and not drink again for two weeks.

I don't think that it was a good idea I was going to the bathroom every 5-10 minutes for a couple of hours, and all that caffeine isn't good for you, especially if you are like me and have trouble sleeping sometimes anyways. So I wouldn't recommend it. It can seriously mess up your sleep schedule if you stay up too late.

I like to drink soda(coke) at lunch and dinner(two cans a day) But I try to limit to one sometimes. Some days I try not to have any but it's hard especially at lunch time which is usually when I need it the most.It makes easier to cut down when I ran out coke because that is the time when I may spend a week or two without drinking it at home with my meals.

Ya i love drinking coke. In fact i prefer it than any other sodas but then i drink now in moderation. There was a time when my sister and i had a competition as to who can consume a liter of coke first. LOL I had a hard time sleeping after that contest. Now i drink coke only on special occasions.

i am a coke addict before. me and my mother always drink with coke every lunch and dinner plus the inbetween meals. we also drink coke while watching tv with popcorn or french fries. but that was before. unfortunately my mother is now half bodied paralyze due to diabetes and heart attack.... i guess it runs in our family. when i met my wife she introduced with to the world of cold tea, fruits juices and smoothies. and i enjoyed it very much and laid down my intakes of cola. my mother even without me continued her addiction with cola and other foods that triggered the diabetes and heart ailment. so now i still drink cola in moderation.

Yea you would be surprised just how many calories you can consume by drinking soda. a can has about 180 calories, for 12 oz. I try to limit myself to 1-2 sodas per day, but it is hard because I am in college now so drink lots of sugary drinks besides soda now. I haven't gained weight though I guess I am getting a lot of exercise.

Of course! I like to drink Coke. Or any soft drinks available that I could buy near... But I have to be sure too that after I drink coke, I have to drink water. So that it will clean out the sugary taste in my mouth and stomach! hehe... Another thing, at least my urine won't look like orange juice!!!

you are right we have to keep away from the sugars present in coke because it may breed diabetis. water aids the saliva in cleansing the mouth so that it is cleaner. wonderful tip i havent tried often.

I do enjoy a coke, however I'm pregnant so I try not to drink any caffeinated beverages. I also have a two year old child so I don't like to keep these types of products in my home. There are many people who believe that child obesity is a symptom of soda consumption, so I don't like to expose my son to anything like that. I find it really interesting that people who come to my home as a guest expect me to keep coke here for them. We recently invited some people over for dinner and one of the guests said "do you have any coke?" and I responded "no, but I have some crystal light, or juice." He repeated the question three more times, each time I responded the same way. It was like he thought it was impossible for a person not to have any coke in their home.

oh that must have been tough for him or her. coke has the invigorating taste and only a few refuses to drink it. the guest disagreed with you at first for not giving him but realized that theres no other choice but to finish the dinner with no coke.

I like drinking coke but I don't often drink it. After all, it is not the healthy drink. I try to avoid it. Especially right now I have a child, I won't drink in front of him. I want to be a good sample. I love China

I really don't like coke or other sodas. I only like to drink soda or coke with pizza.

I love to drink coke and up until recently, it was all I drank when I went out to eat. I use to drink coke a lot at home too, but coke can be part of the cause of acne, like other soft drinks, and so I stopped drinking it at home. I still drink it at work every now and then or I'll get a bottle when I'm out and about.

Hi, cowboyofhell. I am not too sure about the liters. But, I will drink about one can if I have any coke at all.

frankly, i don't. not a drop. if you're drinking a liter now, you can double that up and enjoy the cool, sweet taste of coke. one liter is not enough, you know. that is most specially if you're a cowboy who gets the heat a lot. and you're also of hell, so emerging from a hot surrounding, you need a lot of cold coke.

Back in elementary, I used to finish a 2L bottle of coke every week. Now, I rarely drink any pop at all, except on special occasions.
