don't drink it... i use things like light apple juice for when i have a sweet craving. i just go take a pull from it and get my fix. then once you get off soda you probably wont go back

Yeah bro. The best way I think is to reduce little by little. Say you drink 4 to 5 cokes a day. reduce to 3 aday for a week or so. then reduce more after that. And if you can, keep it only on the weekends after a while until your comfortable not drinking at all. I did this with beer. Used to drink about 3beers aday for a few years. I strongly believe cokes are worse though. Pisses me off how much $ went down the toilet!!!K?zg?n

FYI carbonation slows your digestion.

Once I found out that soda or coke was used in WW2 or WW1 to dip tank motors in to clean them out, it really spooked me! I also heard if you drop a penny in coke it would eat it up and disappear in a matter of days!!Sad It might have all been B.S. but it sure did work to keep me away from it for years

You must be very careful with fructose. Of course, corn syrup in sodas has high fructose corn syrup and regular table sugar is half fructose.

Read up on this: fructose raises uric acid levels and does many nasty things to the body including making you insulin resistant.

In addition, and this is what counts for putting on muscle: it (as can glucose spikes which drive up insulin) can lead to decreased Nitric Oxide output leading to less of a "pump". A little is okay for a young guy, but don't go crazy or it will hurt your routine.

Soda is o.k. as long as you just drink it for the flavor ( 1/2 can a day). If you are using it to quench your thirst, then you'll get in trouble.
