Diet soda information

Common Questions and Answers about Diet soda information


1536593 tn?1292560799 I get severe head aches when I drink Diet Soda, off brand or not, could it be an intolerance to the artificial sweetener or an allergy?
Avatar n tn Besides that the only advice I can offer is with diabetes you should avoid foods with a high glycemic index- these are mainly foods with added sugars- soda, foods that are highly processed- generic white bread or pasta, and foods high in starch- including potatoes. Also diet soda, no better for you. Fake sugars may not play as much with your blood sugar levels but it's still unhealthy and just junk.
Avatar f tn I thnk you make a good point about the money to be made from products with fake sweeteners. I've been listening to "Omnivore's dilemma" on audiobook and it sort of talks about that. Of course, the people trying to sell us food have to find ways to get us to eat more than we need, but there is a physical limit! By introducing reduced/low/no calorie options, all of the sudden that upper limit is gone, or atleast moved much higher.
Avatar n tn I consume alot of diet soda. At my last visit to my cardiologist he asked me about this. He told me that my symptoms could be coming for the diet soda. He has seen cases of young women who come into the er with heart attacks and multiple neuro. symptoms. Their hearts are extremly clean. Like mine. Thats why he was concerned. He believes this is from the caffine. But I have read about the effect of aspartame. I had no idea the effects could be this bad!
144586 tn?1284669764 I don't drink any sodas at all anymore and have not for years, but this information is good to know for anyone who is drinking orange soda. Also all diet sodas have an ingredient called aspartame which is very bad for you. Aspartame is a chemical which also has as one of its ingredients wood alcohol , which is a poison actually. Consuming aspartame is dangerous. Some people who have consumed aspartame have ended up in the hospital being very sick. Aspartame can also be found in gum and yogurt.
Avatar f tn Espart (one of my speakers) remarked that so many people seem to be symptomatic for MS and during his recent visit to a hospice, a nurse stated that six of her friends, who were heavy Diet Coke addicts, had all been diagnosed with MS. This is beyond coincidence! Diet soda is NOT a diet product! It is a chemically altered, multiple SODIUM (salt) and ASPARTAME containing product that actually makes you crave carbohydrates. It is far more likely to make you GAIN weight!
1152782 tn?1451105026 I never finish a can, so probably through the whole day I drink 12 ozs, if I eat out that increases significantly. But I am craving a soda now!! I just read how 1 soda a day is likely to cause low birthweight which can cause a lifetime of illnesses, and 2 sodas a day can cause miscarriage! I am only 6 weeks along so I'm afraid of the misscarriage part the most right now, but when I get further along I'll be more afraid of the weight and illnesses.
Avatar n tn I moved to rural Pennsylvania and do not have access to a diabetes specialist or center and I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out what I can eat. I only drink diet soda, milk, tomato juice and tea and have cut out cake, ice cream, candy, etc. I eat low sugar cookies when I need something sweet. I'm at a loss as to what to eat for breakfast. My cholesterol is high so eggs are out, bagels, cereal, pancakes and french toast also push my blood sugar over 200. What's left?
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
2169060 tn?1337634832 I have worked with hundreds of self-assessed food addicts who could not stop bingeing with the help of therapy or 12 step programs — until they removed artificial sweeteners and caffeine completely from their diet. The most common specific problem was “diet soda”. These were considered safe when they were dieting because they had no calories.
284738 tn?1283110419 Hi! I know what your going through.. I myself just quit drinking soda all together about 4 days ago and haven't looked back since! I started drinking water and sometimes I add those flavor packs like the crystal light you mentioned. Alot of the flavor packs actually come as appetite suppressants so that helps too. I like the Kellogs Kiwi/Strawberry flavor for that but they also have pink lemonade. I did a search for your question on line and here is a quote from the web site I found.
Avatar m tn You need to check the labels of everything you eat. The best diet for one with ascites is lots of fruits and vegetables.
144210 tn?1273092382 I quit drinking alcohol 19 yrs ago. Yay for me. Like alot of recovering alkies, I started drinking diet soda (diet mnt. dew) I just saw a post that diet soda can wreck a liver! My luck just keeps rollin. Anybody got any idea what 4-5 cans of diet dew a day for 19 years can do to a liver? thanks.
5149975 tn?1364336541 Then if you lose or gain weight, you can look back and see what changes you made in your diet. To fall back on the diet diary, you need to keep your exercise level same every day. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar n tn what type of information will help a person maintain a diet. for example i will have an egg sandwich with oj+celery for breakfast, an orange or grapefruit for lunch and the egg sandwich with oj + celery for dinner. 2 liters of water for the day. i can maintain that diet for about a week, then i will break it , the temptations of sweets , plus positive or negative events get me wanting sodas and sweets. then my will power will get low and it takes months to regain and start the diet.
Avatar f tn having a real rough time, rapid heart rate, short of breath, sweats, etc. I am on prednisone. I am interested in finding information on what diet would be good for this condition. My cortisol levels are quite low.
Avatar n tn I also seemed to have minor bouts of nausea even more rarely, maybe four times a year with no vomiting. I used to think most of this minor gastro trouble was nothing more than my diet. I ate a lot of spicy and fried foods, but I also ate a lot of salads and stuff. I also used to drink lots of soda when younger and had a lot of caffeine, usually tea and coffee. I am not obese, do not smoke and hardly ever drink alcohol. I have cut down on a lot of this bad stuff lately.
Avatar m tn I apologize in advance. I have been looking at all the old posts about diet and it was getting overwhelming and some responses were a few years here goes... My 29 year old fiance was just diagnosed with CIS. His symptoms are tingling in hands and feet. He is going to start meds soon (I think Copaxone, but we haven't decided 100% yet). I am trying to find information on what type of "diet" or way of eating would best help alleviate his symptoms.
1773941 tn?1331680359 I was just wondering if anyone has tried the SWANK diet to control their MS? If so, how did it work for you and would you recommend it?
Avatar n tn com's HCG Provider Directory has recently received a growing number of requests from websites AND individuals claiming to sell HCG via mail order, requiring bank or western union wire transfers for payment. We have posted a warning at the hCG Diet Info website, but are still receiving emails from unsuspecting individuals who sent funds, never received their order and are now unable to get their money back. PLEASE forward this warning and pass the word so we can put a stop to this!
Avatar f tn I rarely go for seconds, we eat off the small dinner plates I think some call them salad plates anyway they are not the saucer size. I've been thinking maybe I should start eating off a saucer. I drink lots of water. Soda Pops, chips, cookies, candies, pie or cake as a whole I do not keep in the house on a regular basis. At night I usually get a sweet tooth ..sigh.. I usually have a half a apple and some dates. Any advice on how to keep my weight down?
Avatar n tn not saying at all that you shouldnt do that. my doc said with some fat and if nothing else make sure you eat Something. I have had a very hard time eating 20 g of fat 3 times a day. Lots of days I just dont feel Like I could eat anything when It is time to take the meds. I just do the best I can in a yucky situation. I do find my self justifying eating at Micky D's a little more. I have found that I am getting weird cravings. Big Macs, steaks, italian dressing, club soda, avacados.
256349 tn?1189759437 I am also new to this blog, but have been looking for information on the hcg diet. I am wondering if anyone can fill me in on how it works and what is involoved. I have close to 80lbs to lose. I also noticed that some blogs talked about two different types of diets, KT vs Simeon, what are they and what is the difference. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
Avatar f tn it will give you all sorts of information. and it will give you other sites you can go to for more specific information. If he is taking it in the morning to keep from getting sick he is already a full blown addict. He will need more and more to achieve the same effect. Unfortunatly the part of your brain that controls heartbeat and respiration do not become used to more and more.
