Diet Lemonade

So, to start off my no Coke challenge, I stopped at Chick-fil-A this morning and got a diet lemonade to drink. Man, this stuff is good!

It's got more calories than a diet Coke, but it's still a lot less than I normally have. Instead of having the 256 calories from a large Coke, I'm only having 50 calories from the same size diet lemonade.

Got to start somewhere, right? I wonder if they sell this stuff by the gallon like they do their regular lemonade.

I stopped drinking soda over the summer. At first I switched from soda to lemonade. Then I tried to drink a lot more water and only order a lemonade occasionally. Now I mainly always drink water. I'm to the point where when I do actually drink a soda, I only have a few sips. Good luck!

hehe, make sure you have a bathroom close ... frequent pee trips are a side effect of lemonade.

I should probably try to drink more lemonade and less soda. I've been addicted to coca-cola also and have tried to cut back.

I have a coke problem too. I am sitting here at my desk looking at 5 empty cans and I just opened a new one. Help?

I'm staying away from milky coffees... I've turned mostly towards teas, a bit of unmilked coffee here and there... and a random exciting special 'oh yeah' latte. but for the most part, losts of much more healthy tea drinking!

i love dr. pepper! however, i try to stick to the diet version. although i mostly drink crystal lite and i only usue 1/2 of the tub because it is too sweet if i use the whole thing.

What is this talk of diet lemonade?!?! Where? I have to have it? Oh. We don't have Cik-fil-A here. Figures. *pouts*

Isn't that stuff good? My only reason to go to Chick-Fil-A. They do sell it by the gallon too - but it's pricey. A cheaper alternative is the Sugar-Free Kool-aid lemonade. Yummmm...

Their lemonade is SO addictive!

Another drink idea: Go to your grocery store, freezer section. Find the juice concentrates. If you like iced tea, find the Nestea iced tea (they come in peach, raspberry, and lemon). Peach is my favorite, mmm. I could drink that like there is no tomorrow.

It's more work to make up a concentrate than to buy just a regular drink, but it's a hell of a lot cheaper and I think it tastes better than the bottle stuff, too. And I think it definitely beats that nasty powdered stuff.
