As an aside it's probably easier on my fatty liver as well.
Probably a good idea to cut out both. I've heard diet soda is also bad for you for various reasons. One was something like it tricks your brain into thinking you have had sugar when you haven't had any calories, so when you do eat sweet, you eat more because your brain now equates sweet with no/low calories. Also read something about a study that said the artificial sweeteners may lead to heart problems.
