Jillian Michael's Daily Tips....

Soda Quota
Diet soda will not make you gain weight. It just won't. People always think that diet drinks are so high in sodium they'll make you bloated, but most contain only about 40 mg of sodium — and that's practically nothing. The real question is, Are they healthy? Heck no! A Diet Coke will eat the paint off the hood of your car; it'll clean your toilet bowl. But you know what? It won't make you gain weight.
Don't get me wrong — I don't want you to think that I'm suggesting you consume chemicals in the form of diet soda as part of your daily meal plan. I'm just trying to give you all the information so you can make educated choices about what's right for you.
However, if you are going to down a diet soda every now and then, the best choice is probably Diet Rite. It doesn't contain any sodium, caffeine, carbs, or calories — and it's made with Splenda. Personally, I'm an occasional Diet Dr. Pepper or Coke Zero girl.
