Today is the first day of my Great Diet Coke Experiment. On the suggestion of my brother Yutai, I'm going to drink exclusively Diet Cokes for the entire month of December and see if it makes any difference in terms of my fatness. Subtracting the sugar intake from my two-to-three cans a day of Coke habit (addiction?) should theortically make a difference, no?
PS: I haven't gone to the gym in nearly two months. This is just my lazy man's "workout", hopefully it makes a difference.
PPS: I used to despise the artificial sweetener taste. Somehow, I don't dislike it anymore. It's a unique taste that I could see someone developing a preference for.
PPPS: Incidentally, sometime during the past month or so, the price of a can of soda has been raised from NT$18/US56¢ to NT$20/US62¢ in Taipei's major convenience stores.
