    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Eliminate Diet Soda From Your Diet -
    johnbevil posted:
    99% of all diet soda contains significant quantities of aspartame, a chemical that confuses our bodies and is associated with unhealthy diets and the inability to lose unwanted belly fat. I was once a Diet Dr Pepper addict, consuming 10 cans a day. I stopped cold turkey by switching over to drinking brewed tea. I now sweeten my drinks using Stevia or Truvia, a natural sweetener (made from plants) that contains zero calories. I have not had a diet drink now in over 5 years and amazingly, have not missed them one bit!
