Coke Zero Vs. Diet Coke

I've gotten bored of drinking only water, so I've had a couple of diet cokes this weekend. Kind of gross, but I guess it's good for variety. I tried a coke zero to see how it compared to diet coke. I think the the coke zero is slightly better than diet coke, but it still tastes like diet soda.

Anyone else have an opinion on Coke Zero Vs Diet Coke.

    I like coke zero more than diet coke but I don't drink that much. If I drink a soft drink, I drink xenergy. I can't even stand to drink a sugary soft drink anymore.

    I find Coke Zero to be only slightly less nasty then Diet Coke. Artificial sweeteners are gross. I'm mostly a water drinker, but if I want a soda, I will take the calories and have the real thing.

    I like Zero better. Now if I could just get my hands on the Dr. Pepper Zero I hear exists...

    I wouldn't drink either. Use to drink coke zero. Lost 15 lbs the month I quit. I only drank like 4 a day. Zero tastes better than diet coke. I drink tea sweetened with splenda after I have had at least 3L of water a day. I did have horrible leg cramps at night. They are gone since no coke zero. Aspartames has side effects of leg cramps. Not sure if it was that, but I had had them for years.

    I prefer Coke Zero to Diet Coke but I really like Cherry Coke Zero. It's pretty tasty.

    But, I need to start cutting back on artificial sweetners - I'm having a theory that they are spiking my appetite.

    I like Coke Zero quite a bit and have a couple a week. I used to drink diet coke but the coke zero has way less sodium so I go with that one .

    I like Diet Coke because it DOESNT taste like Coke. Regular coke is too sweet and syrupy for me. No harm drinking them as long as youre not drinking like... cans and cans a day.

    I was addicted to Coke Zero, after everything I read about artificial sweeteners I think I'm done with diet cola. If I treat myself to a cola, it'll be the real deal and make up for it on the treadmill.

    Edit: By addicted I mean no less than 64oz. a day. Anything is fine in moderation and harmful in excess.

    I can't stand the taste of diet drinks but sometimes I'll have them when I'm fed up with water. Pepsi Max is the only diet drink that doesn't taste diet.

    You should try the flavored water from walmart! Its carbonated, so you get the pop craving you want and they have amazing flavors! I have recently been mixing them with wine to cute calories there, makes a wine spritzer!

    I was drinking 3-4 Cokes a day when I reached my HW. The first thing I did to lose weight was drop them for Diet Coke or Coke Zero. I prefer Coke Zero, but until this summer, I had been drinking 3-4 of those per day. I have read all the stuff on artificial sweeteners, so I'm trying to cut back. Except for last weekend when I was out of town and not eating or drinking like I should, I've been sticking to one per day. It's tough, but I think worth it. There is supposedly a version of one or the other (maybe both?) with Stevia instead. If I find that, will definitely try it. Otherwise, gonna keep drinking for now with the hope that I can give it all up before too long.

    To replace the caffeine, I have started trying to drink green tea. Unsweetened.

    i don't like coke Zero because the sweetener (sucralose) makes me feel nauseated. I don;t have that problem with diet coke.

    Either is fine with me. Lately I have been choosing coke zero!

    I prefer diet coke over coke zero, but I really prefer diet pepsi over both. I also use that Mio water enhancer when I'm tired of plain water. The fruit punch is pretty good.

    ^^^ THIS! Glad I'm not the only one who feels that way.
