Patient discussion about soda

Q. Can you tell me which has the less amount of sugar. Is it sweet tea or diet soda? I am 35 yrs old, diabetic patient. I am working as a steward in a club. As you know that I am charge of the table as a wine steward in a club, my work includes tasting the wine, tea, soda, juices, etc. As a diabetic I find it very difficult to control my temptations. I am not in a situation to resign my job because of my health. But I know the importance of health too. Can you tell me which has the less amount of sugar. Is it sweet tea or diet soda?

A. if the tea has an artificial sweetener in it- they are both the same. if it has sugar- then the diet soda. you don't have artificial sweeteners over there? if not- buy some and bring it with you and add it instead of sugar. and you won't have any problem drinking tea :)
