:lol: I've heard this complaint before. For me, it's more about the taste of diet soda than the "health benefits". Diet soda is an acquired taste and once you get used to it, you can't really drink the regular crap anymore. At least I think it's too sweet.

So bring on the triple quarter pound with cheese with a large diet Coke and don't give me any shit about it! :spit:

Not to debunk your rant, because it is kinda funny, but if you skip the large soda, you are actually cutting 310-550 calories from your meal, not counting refills (some larges are 32 up to 42 oz). That is nearly "cancelling out" the 600ish calories of a large fry. So there kinda is a method to the madness i suppose. And some just prefer the taste. I personally think nothing tastes better than a "red can" coke though, calories and all. And make my cheeseburger a double, add bacon and jalepenos with fries, lots of salt. It don't happen often, but when i do it i do it right.

I can't stand diet so give me a #1 w/ a large coke or sweet tea. :lol:
I haven't seen vitamin water, but I have seen Powerade. As far as the diet soda thing goes, it's not gonna cancel anything out but it will make the calorie intake a lot less than if they had a large regular soda. I've been drinking diet for a while and actually prefer it to regular, but that's just my preference. So bring on the double double animal style with jalapeños and a large chocolate shake.

Another reason is the sugar. Fries are sugar free, and the beef, bread and "Veggies" Are also very low in sugar. So they just choose fat over sugar lol. A large Diet coke vs. regular has a 1100-150g sugar difference. being a 12oz can have anywhere from 35-60 grams of sugar.
