Today's soft drink realization

I've given in and tried a bottle of Diet Pepsi today. A few days back I figured that I'd have to avoid soft drinks entirely because I don't like aspertame, saccharin, or even sucralose, and the high fructose corn syrup in the regular soft drinks was too much of a health risk. But I realized something: I need something. I get bored. It's not that I really need the caffeine or liquid. I just need something to do with my hands and mouth.

(OK, get yer minds out of the gutter there.)

That notion about being bored enough to eat or drink kind of hit home today. I know I'm not a pioneer in the field of nutrition with this insight. It's just something I need to around, now that I recognize it. Maybe sitting at a desk all day typing is boring? Or something. Maybe I need chewing gum.

Our minds are not in the gutter. We're merely aware that your extra-vocational talents and skills sets are tragically underutilized.

Yeah. YEAH! :)

P.S.: Compliments on your icon from Dave/Wolf.

I like Canada Dry sparkling water for that purpose. I prefer the lemon-lime, although Wolf thinks that's nasty. His plain style doesn't seem to work as well for me and leaves me burping.

Maybe I'll look for the lemon-lime. The plain Canada Dry is kind of harsh to me. I've sometimes added vanilla syrup to it, though (non-sugared, it turns out) and that helps some.

There's other flavors and other brands, too. I despise the fruity tasting drinks I have tried, but it's been a while since I have tried them. I like just enough taste to give a sense that there's something there. I find the Canada Dry lemon-lime helps me cut down on snacking, and that's a good thing.

I'm with you - I want a little taste. I could drink water all day, but that's not enough and I get bored with that too.

Diet Pepsi is of the gods.

That is all.

I could get used to it, I think. (But then I thought that about Coke C2.)

Diet Pepsi isn't quite as over-sweetened as others. Lets more of that delicious cola flavor through (or something).
