    some people say you shouldnt have it because of the aspartame content but ive been on induction for 1 week and lost 7lbs whilst having one can a day.
    so it works for some.

    It also has citric acid in it which can stall some people... coke zero is free from it tho. x

    yes it's allowed, but Coke Zero would be better as Linzi says.

    yeah thats what I thought, thought all coke had caffeine in too so it'd be always off-limits? I ask cos I used to live off the stuff but kicked it to the kerb since monday, not exactly a bad thing :)
