Normally I weigh around 180 lbs, when I was active and ate decently. Well I stopped being active and ate a little more then I should of and shot up to 210 lbs. Well all I did was start drinking diet pop. I've noticed Diet Code Red Mountain Dew doesn't taste like diet at all and I actually quite like it. It's been close to 2 months now and all I've done was switch beverages and I've dropped to 195 lbs. 15 lbs for just switching to diet is awesome. Note, I still drink a lot of beer and still lost that weight easy as hell. So, if you want to lose a few pounds, I suggest finding a diet drink you like and have at it. Edit: I'm still losing weight too, so maybe 5-10 more pounds isn't out of the question.
