    would be curious to get more info on why diet sodas and artifiical sweeteners such as splenda are a problem. diet dr. pepper is a life saver for me, both for the caffeine and for the fizziness that I seem to crave. my wife drinks unsweetened soda water, so I know I could do that, but I've always figured that if diet soda is my biggest vice, then I'm doing OK.

    I also put the sweeteners (mio) into my water to help me drink more water. I love the stuff (especially a mix of tea and lemonade to make an arnold palmer), and I'm hoping that it's OK.

    I know some foods are not optimal, but that isn't the same as it's bad for me. When trying to live a long term lifestyle, I simply can't live my life weight my skinless chicken on a scale and eating that with 3 oz. of brown rice, 8x a day. That's what I'm willing to do precontest, but I can't live like that. To those who can, more power to you. It must be nice to sport 8-pack abs year round.

    In my experience, Uber restricted diets only lead to binging and crashes. Keeping weight off long term means making sustainable lifestyle changes. If you are prepping for competition, that's different. But, Even an elite athlete needs to have an off season.

    Artificial sweeteners absolutely will not make you fat. Following a strict diet is very hard to do and I agree its not meant to last forever. But if you want something bad enough, then do it. Food will be there later
