The black kind, not the white kind! I have a bad gut, and had 14" of it removed about a year ago. The Doc said "no more soda for you". I still drink about 8 cans of Coca-Cola a day, and nothing else. I've tried several times to stop, but I can't. Without it I have no energy and get bad headaches. And I can't eat anything without drinking a Coke. I think that me quiting Coca-Cola is comparable in difficulty to a smoker quiting smoking. Any advice from the Brotherhood? .
