Diet Coke – Blech

I think I’ve nearly rid myself of any affinity for Diet Coke. I’ve been avoiding it due to my scare with high blood pressure, and the fact that the only listed nutrient with a nonzero value is sodium.

I bought a bottle today from the machine at work to perk me up a little, as I was feeling a slight afternoon dip in alertness. I only made it halfway through the bottle before I stopped drinking it. Later I tried to make myself drink a bit more (waste not, want not, plus mmmm — caffeine). No dice. I just threw away the bottle with at least 1/4 of the contents.

This is a good thing. I don’t need to be drinking that crap. The less I crave it, the better.
