Do you think Diet Coke is actually diet ?

It's not because it has a lot of other Chemicals in it.

Diet coke has these ingedients: Carbonated water Caramel Color Aspartame Phosphoric acid Potassium benzoate (to protect taste) Natural flavors Citric acid Caffeine Aspartame is the thing they use instead of sugar, and therefore they can say that they dont use any suger. Although, aspartame is said to create lots of problems in the body, because it is unhealthy for you. I personally would never use aspartame, but real suger (which is also unhealthy). Honey or something like that is the healthiest, and thats why whenever I drink tea or something I always add honey instead of sugar, or aspartame. So in regard to the original question - Diet coke may be less in calories, but it ruins your body never the less.
