    coke zero, its not in the book so you shouldnt have it as it can make you hungry and can kick some people out of ketosis. if you do have it no more than 1 can a day

    Use this time to get over your coke addiction. Trust me, as an ex addict, once its gone, you will feel MUCH better.

    i wouldn't risk it personally. it can make some people crave things again and knock you out of ketosis. the longer you resist the quicker you'll be able to have it again :)

    I used to have a can of coke zero once a week on a saturday night as a treat. The official line is NO but it didn't do me any harm.

    was told by my cdc that it used to be in the book but was taken out... i still have the odd can of diet coke at work... as long as you don't have more than 500ml per day... that's what i was told and it's done me no harm...

    i don't tend to have a can everyday... maybe two a week tops

    As Coke Zero has no carbs and no citric acid, I have been having it as a once a week treat for the past two weeks. It has absolutely no bad side effect for me at all and it's really nice to have something that feels a bit naughty. It's not for everyone and I guess you'd need to try it and see if it affects you - if it does, abstain, if it doesn't - then have it as an occasional treat. x If it means the difference between keeping you on the diet, then I think it's worth a try x

    Official guidance is now to not have Coke Zero or any zero calorie rated drinks.

    Hence the recommendation is water, black coffee, black leaf based tea, or cambridge flavourings.

    The main reason behind this I believe is due to the natural flavourings in the drinks as they can spark food cravings, also from experience of seeing many clients the losses were less uniform on a coke drinker.

    Diet Coke and Coke Zero are not allowed on CD. Maybe the CD's mentioned above are unaware for some reason. Also current research has shown that Coke has been linked to osteosporosis in women, apparently it doesn't affect guys, so cutting it out on CD may stop you using it later.

    This is the current guidance on allowable fluids taken directly from the uptodate Sole Source Booklet. For best results stick to what is allowed.

    I caved in to my Coke cravings about a month ago (it was either that or fall off the wagon altogether) and started having Coke Zero, initially once a week and now every day. It hasn't affected my losses, so I shall continue being naughty ;).
