    Dr Pepper Zero doesn't have citric acid in it either like Coke zero so if you're having Coke zero, DPZ wont be any worse!

    Watch out tho because it's not all of the Zero drinks. I know that Sprite Zero and Lilt Zero have citric acid

    When I met my CDC for the first time on Sunday she said that I could have a can of coke zero or dr pepper zero per day, but not lilt or sprite zero.

    The official line is that zero calorie drinks except for Cambridge water flavourings are not allowed on the diet. :) It explains this in the Sole Source booklet.

    Drinks that aren't in the book can kick you out of ketosis. Because some CDCs have drank these drinks in their period of doing CD and didn't get kicked out of ketosis they're prob. advising it to their cliënts..

    My advice? Don't do it... better to be safe than sorry really, is that 1 can worth getting kicked out of ketosis for?

    the zero drinks also tend to give people the munchies and make it harder for them to stick to the diet. it used to be allowed on cd i believe, but because of this, because it encouraged people to fall off the wagon as it were, it was removed from the plan... at least that's what i heard.

    At the end of the day, LL and CD is about ABSTINANCE from food - unless it is one of the shakes/bars/soups provided, then you shouldn't be having it.

    Doesn't matter that it does/doesn't kick you out of ketosis, it's about MENTAL attitude, and if you can't give up just 1 can of coke a day, what are your chances of overhauling your eating habits in the long run?

    The "yes you can have it" /"no you can't have it" goes back to when Cambridge use to say it was acceptable to have the odd coke zero - now new findings have suggested that although it maynot kick you out of ketosis - it can make you eat other "no no" foods. So it is no longer endorsed by Cambridge. If your CDC trained in the era when it was "allowed" then he/she may say you can have it.
