If I stop drinking diet coke how much weight will I lose?

I'm 5'8" and 130-132 lbs and a competitive swimmer. I drink anywhere from 2-8 a day depending on if I go out to eat or not. I want to be 115 lbs. I've been dieting off and on for over two years but I've been stuck 130-134 for the past three or four months... right now I'm with friends so it's harder to diet bc I don't know what I'm going to be eating so I can't plan. anyways if I stop drinking Diet Coke or you know slowly decrease it, will I lose weight? will it be visible weight loss? I'm 15

Impossible to say. The simple answer is 'none', as diet coke contains next to no calories. However, studies gave shown you eat more when you consume artificial sweeteners, as your brain thinks it's had sugar when it hasn't, so you get hungry to compensate. Try drinking water instead for a week or two and see what happens.

This is a very debated subject. But since diet coke really don't contain any calories, you shouldn't gain weight from it at all.

yes you will lose weight, not very much though. replace the diet coke with water. if you go out to eat a lot you can get apps on your phone to track what you eat and restaurant apps that show you the fat/calories in their meals

Drink water. No soda if you want to lose weight. Soda also has a lot of caffeine which will decrease bone density

None! None at all. A hot dog has more calories than diet soda. One Oreo cookie has tons more than diet soda.

Reading about Hasimotos disease and they said that stopping diet coke will prevent belly fat. Ice given it up. Too many aspertaine problems too.
