After succumbing to the inevitable metabolism death, I underwent The Great Diet Switch . Since that fateful day when I swore off regular sodas, I have rarely to drink one. When a diet choice is available, even a particularly nasty one, I always take it.
Such is my commitment. Even though I haven’t lost a single pound, I haven’t gained any either. Victory or Mexican Stand-Off?
Either way, during my quest, I have learned some very important lessons.
One: Mother Nature always wins. There are certian rules in this Universe that can’t be altered or broken. And she made them all.
Two: Two green tea bags, half a packet of Sweet-N-Low and a single serving of Crystal Light mixed with 64 oz of water is heaven in a bottle. The Lemonade Crystal Light is the best, just the right amount of sweet with bitter. Simply refreshing.
Three: Some drinks can never be diet. They are awful, no matter what. Off-brand diet colas always upset my stomach (read: give me gas) and usually taste like they forgot to add something. Namely, the taste.
Four: Some diet drinks, however, are amazing! Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper tops my list. I call it liquid candy. My next choice would be Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi. Do they put real cherries in there? Third would be a tie between Diet Sundrop and Diet Mountain Dew.
I may have had to give up sugar as I’ve gotten older, but I need not give up taste. Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper is proof of that. One more question, when do I get paid for this raving endorsement? I’ll take a case of the stuff, anything!
