If you're a diet coke drinker, are you skinny?

I'm curious - the biggest people I see crack open a diet coke. Does diet coke really help you be thin? Please, hopefully the poll will have integrity but I'd love to see from the thin people, if you drink diet coke.

Well, I'm not exactly skinny, but I recently lost 40 pounds and part of that was due to switching from regular soda to diet- obviously, exercise and eating right played a bigger part, but hey, every little bit helps.

i think that "diet" sodas should be labeled- sugar free instead of diet. the word diet implies that it will help you lose weight, when in fact it just won't make things worse by adding extra calories.

this post reminded me of something i used to see all the time when i went to fast food places.... hearing the large person in front of me order- double cheeseburger with extra mayo, extra large fries, a chocolate shake and a large DIET coke. i'd still be chuckling when i ordered my salad and DIET coke.

Well - I drink diet coke. I am 5'10" and 145 so I miss your 135 pound cut-off.. However, I think like many diet-coke drinkers I know, I don't drink it because it's a 'diet' drink but because I like the way it tastes. I would drink it regardless of calorie content simply because I like it.
