The question for me should be "Mountain Dew or Water". To me, Mountain Dew is like Spinach is to Popeye.

The addiction to diet drinks is the aspartame, a chemical, not a food substance.

I am a huge water drinker but once in awhile I need caffeine. Diet Coke or coffee usually fills my craving...coffee probably does the trick a little better.
