    Hey people! Recently I've fallen back into the whole "drink a ton of diet drinks to avoid actual food" cycle and it freaks me out because I really don't like to have artificial sugars more than once a week. I used to love drinking things like Bai and Zevia - both that claim to be either 5 or 0...

    Does anyone know of a good unsweetened or stevia-sweetened soda? I love fizzy drinks but I can't have sucralose or aspartame and most of the stevia sodas I've had were terrible. As of now I just drink perrier or hiball with no sweetener, but I do miss cola and root beer. Also, I apologize if...
