I drink diet soda too. I think the issue that nutritionists and the like have with diet soda is that the artificial sweeteners can cause you to crave sugar and the sodium can cause you to retain water. Also it's not particularly good for your brain. That's all I can think of. When I do drink a can, I never let myself count it as water. Water has to be water or green tea, and nothing else.
