hi, i am emily.
and i love diet coke.
it is my only vice when i am trying to diet.
and if i could have 2, it would be diet coke and chips and salsa. mmmmm
for the most part tho, i'll take a diet coke
preferably from this place:
every time i drive past one of these, my car just automatically pulls into a parking spot right up front.
and i always have 75 cents to pay for a 32oz
purified fountain soda+crushed ice+styrofoam cups=AZ dream.
then it happened. july 1st, 2010, 10am. scottsdale, az
i am waiting for the results of my knee MRI.
dr waslewski walks in, and gives me the good news
i just have tendonitis and have to wear a band around my knee when working out, thats it!
well then i had a word vomit
a word that i didn't want to bring up
i asked him if my daily dose of diet coke would have a part with my knee pain
he said yes
he explained to me that diet soda (and regular soda) has phosphate+calcium or phophate+something.
well you pee out the phosphate along with the calcium or other substance that your body needs and it can cause easier bone breakage when you are older. (like 60+ older, but knowing me and my bones probably much sooner)
he went on and told me that teenagers/college students who drink diet soda after diet soda stunt the calcium level that your body needs. and if i want all of my levels at the peek they need to be when i turn 30, i need to discontinue drinking my daily DC now...
Dr. Waslewski did say i could have one periodically.
so i will start leaning off of them by going to Soda Saturday's only and then once i am strong enough, i will only have one periodically.
but you know what, if going off of DC will cure my joint problems and help me to keep my body strong, then that is just a.o.k. with me. i'd rather go off of the DC then get another surgery that's for sure!
