Tab: 1 Crazy Calorie

This ad for Tab soda reminded me of my childhood:

Click to see Tab 1 Crazy Calorie

It reads:

1 Crazy Calorie

Unsticky. Unstuffy. Uninhibited. The Now Taste of Tab. Not so sweet. With 1 crazy calorie in 6 ounces. It’s what’s helping so many people keep slim and trim. Tab. That’s what happening. To the nicest shapes around.

There isn’t actually any medical proof that diet sodas keep people “slim and trim.” In fact, there is some evidence that says that overuse of artificial sweeteners actually makes things worse.

I am conflicted when it comes to diet soda. For me, it’s a great way to get a little caffeine and satisfy my sweet tooth. There is all that research saying diet sodas are bad for me, though, so I feel like I SHOULDN’T drink it. I enjoy them, but I feel guilty about them. I’m sure a lot of us are dealing with food guilt for any number of things.

I’m sick of feeling guilty about food that I eat. No matter how healthy I eat, there is always some vegan raw food puritan out there telling me ANOTHER thing that I shouldn’t eat. I keep thinking that if I were thin that they would shut up about what I eat, but I have a feeling that even that wouldn’t stop them.

I think I’ll go find a Tab…
