Diet soda

As you may have guessed, I'm attempting to give up diet soda. Or at least drink less. Diet soda is really not so good.

Jonah Lehrer (Proust Was a Neuroscientist, remember my sister gave me that book for Chanukah? I'm currently reading. Damn, he's good. A genius, even.) researched and agrees with the Skinny Bitches.

Basically, what we're doing by drinking diet soda is tricking our brain. Lab-study-wise, a little miracle. But scientifically, not so cool. So many things can trick people. I don't want to trick myself!

So, so long, Fresca. Adios, Diet Dr. Pepper. Sayonara, Polar Pom Dry. It's more tea for me. Eventually summer will be here and I'll ice them all out, caffeinated and caffeine free alike. Yum!
