    For the past few days I have been unable to have my full three packs and been spilling most away. I am not hungry but today I felt like a change so got myself some Coke Zero. How do you think this will effect my weight loss. I feel hopeless :cry:

    Coke zero doesn't pose a problem for some people so you may be fine in that respect but I really think you should find some way to get all 3 packs in to make sure you get all of the nutrients you need. Is it that you don't like them or are they too rich for you to finish a whole pack at once? Some people split their packs in 2 so that they have 6 mini-meals in the day or others will add extra water to dilute them a bit.

    If it's a matter of taste then make sure you try all of the flavours before you give up on them and try some of the shakes warm or iced. It makes a big difference to the taste!

    Hiya

    I have had coke zero everyday since Day 1, and had no problems with it effecting my weight loss.

    I agree with Lucky Star though - you really need to make sure you have your 3 packs (even if you don't really fancy them). Maybe consider bars or mousse as a change ?

    I'm glad it doesn't have much effect on weight loss. I know I need to have all my food packs. I am having my WI on saturday, I will ask for bars to replace one of the shakes. i have tried them all and I don't like them at all. They are to rich for me.

    Have you tried the soups? Or making the shakes hot? Like the others have said I wouldn't worry about the coke zero, I haven't been drinking it but was told by my cdc that I could have a couple of cans a day if I wanted. I'm a bit of a diet coke addict so thought it was best for me to stick to water in case I end up drinking litres of the stuff!

    Hope you manage to find some flavours you like.

    Oh and if you look about on this site you'll find some recipes that some people have used to change their packs into something a bit nicer!

    Reading what others have written I feel very excited at the prospect of treating myself to a coke zero!! I am too a bit of a Diet Coke addict so knowing I can have coke zero has really made my day! Has anyone had any negative reactions to coke zero on CD? xx

    I find the shakes rather rich too but I just add extra water to make a thinner consistency ( at least 10fl oz )

    Does anyone know if I could have Diet Coke instead of Coke Zero?

    Diet coke has citric acid in it apparently so no good if you're in Ketosis x

    The reason that Coke Zero is 'ok' (although not sanctioned by CD) is because it is zero calories unlike some other diet drinks and also it does not contain citric acid which can throw some people out of ketosis. There's a sticky about it on the main CD page.

    Some people don't have any problem with citric acid whereas others will be coke zero is definitely the safer option.

    BTW, Coke Zero and Dr Pepper Zero do NOT have citric acid but Sprite Zero and Fanta Zero DO contain citric acid

    I too add more water to my shakes, soups etc

    200ml in porridge
    300ml in shakes
    400ml in soups
    200ml for mix a mousse

    I find it way to rich otherwise :)

    It's so good to know that it is an option if I want it. I think I will speak to my CDC before I consider it though.
