    I'm with forth on this one really. When I got into weightlifting/nutrition, I got scared into not drinking any sort of soda (especially diet).

    But after reading some research (and research reviews by others) on the subject, I started drinking it again and noticed no effect whatsoever (neither good nor bad).

    Frankly, diet soda can really help on a low calorie diet IMO by cutting hunger (at least for me).

    People will make a big deal about anything. Yes its diet coke that makes everyone fat and stupid. The studies I saw awhile back that showed a possible level of harm to the brain were done by injecting aspartame directly into brain tissue. Bet a lot of things could be harmful if you do that.

    If the biggest problem you have to worry about is diet coke you are either doing really awesome or not much at all.

    This should be in the nutrition forum btw.

    Speaking of aspartame, I've been drinking a six pack of diet Mountain Dew every day, for the past 13 years. And close to a pot of coffee a day, since getting out of the Army in '93. No problems here. And like forth said, calories in vs. calories out.

    I'll heed to your advise and have food related discussion on nutrition forum.

    And just to answer your question my biggest worry isn't Diet Coke...it's getting up one morning and to have turned into a big fat fast food junkie.

    Thanks for your input

    Well, of course. Whatever works best for you.

    I get really bored with just drinking water so it's coffee + tea + diet sodas 'round the clock for me.

    Adam diet coke can't make you a fast food junkie. Don't obsess over every little thing.

    Get a decent diet in place. You don't have to be on the superpaleointermitantfastingsamuraiwarriordiet. You know whats good and bad for you. Try not to eat the bad stuff as much. Don't over complicate things.

    As far as training everyone should know what works here. Pick a program and stick to it long enough for it to work. If you are going to create your own keep your goals in mind and center it around the big movements whether you are training with bbs, kbs, bodyweight, etc.

    DO THIS OVER MANY YEARS CONSISTENTLY and you'll get where you want to go.

    I wasn't trying to be a jerk with my previous post. Sorry if I came off like that.
