Being a diabetic your limited to so many things, especially drinks. No regular soda, no juice, limited milk.....so what do I drink? I am addicted to diet soda. I have to say I probably go through a bottle every 2 days. My family keeps telling me how bad it is because of the chemicals and I know when I was pregnant I wasnt allowed any sugar substitute except splenda so there must be something true to aspartame and all the other substitutes. I recently started with the diet arizona tea with splenda which isnt bad. I hate drinking water but I dont mind some of the flavored ones.
