I have to admit one of my (many) weaknesses is energy drinks. I work as a programmer and do the clichéd think of throwing down as much energy drink as I can whilst typing as many lines of code as I can!
I recently found out that on the Slimming World diet Diet Red Bull is free – I was pretty shocked because I figured that all the caffeine, taurine and everything-else-ine would count as at least as many Sins as Lucozade or other more sugary drinks, but no, because there is no sugar we can have as much as we like. (Of course I wouldn’t recommend packing away as much as an average programmer does!!)
A really welcomed side effect is that I didn’t get as much of a crash as I normally would with the normal Red Bull. Brilliant!
There are many people who have a sweet tooth and really enjoy Coke.
Unfortunately Coke is pretty bad for you, it is full of sugar and can really affect weight loss if drank any more than as an occasional treat.
The obvious solution is Diet Coke, but many people dislike the taste of it.
People in this situation may have ignored Coke Zero when it hit the scene because surely it would taste just as bad as Diet Coke, if not worse, but many find it far tastier than Diet Coke and it is far better for you than ‘Full Fat’ Coke, on Slimming World for example it is free.
You can pretty much pick up Coke Zero in any shop – it seems to be the masculine alternative to Diet Coke and has taken off quite well from what I can tell.
Some people also think Pepsi Max is sweeter tasting than Diet Coke, so again, that might be a free alternative you could try.
Me – I am fine as I like Diet Coke and actually prefer it to any other type! 😉
This was actually something mentioned at my group session, so I can’t really claim the kudos for it!
