I'm with TeBe- when I was on a mission to drop weight last year, though bubhub 6 week challenges, one diet coke in the afternoon was my saviour!
I lived in Japan for a time and I'm pretty sure I could get lite coke if I wanted it. I don't really remember because you are given green tea with meals and that is mostly what we drank. I can't believe I would have gone for that many months without a DC though. The only info online I can find that states it's banned in Japan is from dodgey blogs/sites...I was there 6 years ago. There must be someone who's travelled there more recently?
I vaguely remember it being called 'zero calorie coke with vitamins' or something equally funny...:-)
All I know is that my chronic illness has improved since flicking aspartame, its the only change I have made.
You could try the Mount Franklin sparkling mineral water. They come in either lemon or lime twist flavour and have no sugar or nasties in them. I was quite a diet soft drink addict and these really helped break my addiction. So refreshing on a hot day! I just get mine in Woolies
I'd rather sugar than aspartame, but that is just me. Everything is bad if you don't do it in moderation, but I'd still consume something that grows rather than is produced in a lab iykwim. I love bacon.
Whatever makes you sleep better at night.
BTW, I have done a lot of research into additives and my condition. Quite a lot of sufferers have the same problem. But what would I know, I live with the condition, talk to others with the condition....
Oh that's right, it hasn't been proven with "science". Because they get that right everyday.
Peace out. Im reminded why I don't post anymore.
