    Hi all,

    I would really appreciate the advice of those who KNOW (not people guessing-i need definite facts) about what is the best thing for me to drink tonight when I go out. I won't be drinking alcohol but I don't want ppl to know bout the diet so want to drink soft drinks disguised as vodka and coke or something-but not sure whether I can have diet coke. i know the pub we are going to dont do coke zero so not sure what to do!

    Please let me know whats the best thing to do!
    Thanks,
    N xx

    If your fully in ketosis, a couple of diet cokes might be ok....but be warned, I am fine with diet coke, but you might not be....the only actual SAFE thing to drink is water and I know thats a bit of a bummer, but its true.

    I have had nights out where I drank fizzy water all night, and said I didnt want soft drinks cos I had an upset tummy, and made excuses that I had an early start the next day to get away from the issue of not drinking alcohol

    Hope you have a great night watever u decide to drink hun!

    Drink sparkling water, and say its vodka and lemonade. Thats what I did, you get wierd looks from the people at the bar, but hey!
    Or take some water flavoring out and add it to sparkling water, its nice!

    Hey ok so facts - coke zero and diet coke...there is absolutley no difference in the ingredients except for the citric acid in diet coke and the malic acid in coke zero. they both have no sugar and very little calories. its the citric acid that can make u really hungry but if your out it might not be as bad. But like one of the girls said it can affect people differently and even coke zero can throw you out of ketosis. So it is up to yourself....but i know how you feel i actually havnt ventured out for a nite out minus the alcohol with my mates since i started (and that was jan) but i must admit iv had a few bad nites out n did have alcohol (but only on SPECIAL occasions - ie like valentines or my bday which is on monday so had my "bad" nite last nite hehe)

    Neway i hope you have a good nite - in both the senses of it bein a good nite and you being behaved lol :bliss:

    Hey all!

    Well as you can see- I'm back! Had a wicked night and didn't even touch the diet coke :) decided there was no point risking it, and why pay when you can have water for free? I was driving as well so it was a free night out for me :) was also funny watching my friends get bladdered and taking the p out of them, and topped up my water consumption for the day at the same time.

    Surprisingly didnt miss drinking, although I did leave earlier than all of them, but I am just so proud of myself for taking the plunge and getting involved but staying off the drink!

    Btw told a couple of my mates about the diet and they were rly supportive and said they had wondered if i was dieting as noticed i looked slimmer, especially around my face and hips! Woohooooooo!

    So as you can tell, I'm in a good mood and so glad I went out rather than being a hermit. Looking forward to next week :)

    xxx

    Glad you had a good night! It does get easier, and as your mates get out of their faces they dont even notice wat anyone else is drinking anyway!
