I think people who drink Diet Coke like sugar and fat, so they are likely to have higher calorie foods and dishes than those who don't like Diet Coke. However, this is not true of all Diet Coke lovers.
Diet coke tastes horrible. Not bad at first but the aftertaste is disgusting.
diet coke is not for people losing weight... it's for diabetics who can die from normal coke...
All that is true, diet coke is not healthy or better for you. But to claim that no thin people drink it is not true. The majority who drink it may not be thin, but there are absolutely thin people who do.
Diet coke is a visade. The same gos for Marlboro "light", etc.. I think there is a psychology aspect to it as well as a health issue. Your mind says subconsciously that it's diet or light and stimulates you to feel like you are consuming less so you can have a one or more extras for that. The artificial sweetener in Diet Coke is more dangerous than high fructose corn syrup which is more dangerous than regular sugar.
I'm not relatively thin and I drink diet coke
