Still not one soda. Worst thing I've had to drink was a starbucks energy drink once. Been drinking my coffee black. I have one cup in the morning, then usually water the rest of the day. Some protein shakes to supplement my protein intake.

I've continued to log my meals on noom and have been consistent on coming in under my calorie goal.

Been fairly consistent on working out. Doing a mix of free weights, machine weights, and body weight.

So far I've lost about one and a half inches off my belly and 5 lbs.

Feeling really good.

I drink black coffee, distilled water, and flavored carbonated water like bubly or lacroix. I found it was the carbonation that I was craving not the sweetness of soda. If you do crave a soda type sweet carbonated beverage, you could always add a sugar replacement sweetener like swerve. It doesn't affect your insulin levels or teeth. I usually add it to gin and bubly for a gin and tonic type drink.

Im in vacation in the Philippines and everyone out here drinks soda man. So I don't think I can pull off a soda fast just yet.

I just had one of those powdered nestea drinks this afternoon It was pretty good, reminds me of my childhood. I'll burn this off during a jog, walk or bike ride or something.

Basically, I have a soda addiction. I drink a particular flavor like people smoke cigarettes.
I can relate to that, I used to be hooked on sodas. What worked well for me is I switched to water. Once you get into the habit of drinking it, water is incredibly refreshing. I'll still have a soda sometimes when I go out to eat though, that's my compromise. I don't really like restricting myself from things completely. Whether that would work for someone else probably depends on how many meals they eat out though, most of my meals are home cooked.

I enjoy water greatly now. I have actually come to enjoy coffee without anything added as well.

I will occasionally have a soda again. My goal here is 30 straight days without. Then I will allow one occasionally. The idea is it will be treated like an occasional treat or desert.

Just not having it in the house can make a big difference. I've gotten to the point now where I can keep some in the fridge for guests sometimes, and I won't touch it. I couldn't have trusted myself with that at one time though.
