    Hi Guys

    I swapped from LL to CD today and have read somewhere I know that I can drink some diet drinks in moderation. I can vaguely remeber some confusion over which drinks you can and cannot have. E.g. Is it Coke or Pepsi??

    Can someone please enlighten me as to whether I can drink;

    Coke Zero, Diet Coke, Diet Pepsi, Pepsi Max etc

    Thanks so much...

    Hi Lolly and good luck xxx

    According to my CDC, you can have 1 can of Coke Zero a day as it contains malic acid and not citric acid. As far as I'm aware this is the only one you can have tho am open to being corrected on that!

    Hiya

    Current official guidance is a maximum of a small glass of zero calorie drink a day (it is in your pink and blue booklet on page 2).

    I always recommend people avoid them because of food cravings and some drinks jeopardise ketosis but the official line is a small glass.

    Thanks

    Taken from the current print of the sole source booklet :-

    So called Zero Calorie drinks are now always calorie free. Excessive use of such drinks is unwise due to "hidden" calories and too many carbonated drinks can lead to a feeling of bloating. We recommend no more than 660ml/one pint a day. Ketosis should be monitored regularly.

    Cool, thanks guys. I knew I had read it soemwhere but I'm at work right now so don't have the books to hand. You might be right on the craving thing though. Think I'll stay away from it for now - have been distracted by work anyway now.
