can wreck havoc on someone who is already suffering with high blood pressure. It was not a good choice for me.

I am not sure about your reference to weight gain since I do not have that problem.

I'm certainly not arguing with your results, or that diet soda is good for you, but most diet soda (at least those I drink) are not high sodium. Diet Mountain Dew, for example, has 35mg per 8 ounces, which qualifies it as a "very low sodium" product.

I started drinking diet sodas a few weeks after diagnosis (1 a day at most). I tried the stevia all natural ones first but they were a poor substitute for real coke (not diet). About a month later I got to were I couldnt tell if diet coke was diet. But I kept buying the more natural brands anyway. Now I prefer the natural (more expensive) stevia and erythritrol sweetned sodas. I acctually like the aftertaste now, the standard diet drinks have a chemical taste to them that I don't like. Its not the sweetner taste, its something else almost salty and metalic, I only started to notice it about a month ago. Its wierd how my taste keep changing in this area.

I also don't worry about eliminating diet pop, although I do prefer the Nestea Splenda-sweetened powder you can buy in the 6-pack. So good!

I drink mostly water, ice tea, black and green, but the occasional A&W diet root beer is a nice diversion.

Control is with Diet modification, exercise, supps.
