    What's the current thinking - yes or no? I remember last time it was what got me through - my bottle of Coke Zero mid-afternoon.

    Thanks!

    Be careful with coke!!

    I was addicted to coke, and drank about 3-4 cans per day, with all those funny dangerous ingredients it's just not good for us. I have'nt had a drop of the stuff since Sept'06.;)

    Personally i would say yes - its nice to have something that you can cheer yourself up with if u had a bad day ...rather that than food!!!

    Although it not on the "approved" list - my cdc said it was ok in moderation - i have a can every now and again.
    I think the main concern is just that it may wake up your taste buds and make you crave something else :rolleyes: but i find you just have to have a bit of variety now and again :D

    you are allowed 660 ml, a day. which is two cans. I have mine at weekends only like a treat!!, you must not include that in your water intake though.

    Thanks Littlelegs! I just like 1 of the 500ml bottles, so it's good to know I'm within limits! And funniliy enough I've never included it in my water intake, so good to know I was along the right lines!

    Recently on the pink site there was talk of other zero drink's that we might be able to have in moderation, anyone know the outcome of that?

    Penny - I think I remember looking at Sprite Zero, and it had citric acid in it. But that was a while ago, and my memory isn't what it used to be!!!

    My 2 year old twins are in bed sleeping so the pressure is off a bit!! Just one more to get to bed now! Wanting to eat desperately but not going to. When I get to this time of the day I think - it's not worth ruining a whole days effort now!

    how are you getting on??

    Hi guys - don't want to be a spoilsport, but officially Diet Coke isn't an approved drink because it can knock people out of ketosis. That said some people drink it and are fine with it, so just take it carefully. Bear in mind too that your CD diet is giving your body so much goodness and a diet coke is not exactly a healthy option! :p

    My advise to clients is that if an occasional glass will help you stick to the diet, then so be it, but if you can manage without all the better.

    Hi Jan - I seem to remember that Coke Zero hasn't got citric acid in it, so is different to diet coke in that way? :confused:

    Yes I think you're right there and that's the main difference, but even malic acid can cause problems if you're very carb sensitive.

    Oh thanks Jen I didn't realise there was another acid that did that too! I'm not too carb sensitive (thank goodness) but I will keep an eye and make sure. I think I will use them til I'm off and running and then cut them out.

    Penny - never tried the crisps, think I'd destroy them! I'm quite happy with my shakes, though the truffles sound nice so I might give them a go at the weekend.
