    Just wondered how many of you allow your self a coke zero, or tesco diet coke? and does it make a difference to your losses?

    I tend to have one can or bottle a day, It's my "treat" I don't like tea or coffe, so I appreciate the caffeine kick too!
    So far my weight loss has been steady, appart from totm, it really slows then.
    Do you think I should avoid, to loose more?

    It's not allowed so I'm not having it. I'm dreading it a bit though because I drink Diet Coke constantly.

    I am very tempted to have one... asked my CDC who said it was a no no, but having seen so many people drink it on here, surely I can have one or two cans a week!

    I have either a can of coke zero or dr. pepper zero as a treat probably twice a week (not in the first 2 weeks tho!). Its done me no harm, i've always stayed in ketosis and my losses have been good to date (apart from week 4 - and no cans that week!).

    Its entirely up to you but everyone is different......

    Good luck

    I have a can of coke zero a day sometimes two.

    If I'm in the pub I have diet coke no ice and no lemon. It doesnt kick me out of keytosis.

    the thing is those of you who have it says it has no effect but how do you know how much you would have lost if you hadn't had it? I'm not saying it does make a difference. I have no idea and would love to know it doesn't (I don't have it) but just wonder how you know. Have you had a month of not taking it and compared results?

    I have the Tesco one but only maybe 2-3 cans a week. I used to drink about 2l a DAY!! I don't know if it is affecting my losses but I'm happy with what I've lost so far. It can make me feel a bit hungry but so does sparkling water - and its not an unbearable hunger. I just need something different sometimes.

    :busted:Step away from the coke you!!

    Seriously, you know my view.... if its keeping you on track, and you are not overdoing it, then fine.
    But make sure you drink the :tear_drop::tear_drop:WATER!!!:tear_drop: :tear_drop: :D

    I understood that Diet Coke was an absolute no no because of citric acid but then told the Coke Zero in smallish quantities was okay. I had one last Friday night to celebrate the weekend as we would normally have a drink(s) on "the end of the week" I had one can split between 2 wine glasses and it made me think I was having something different. IMHO it is good to have to lightened up with once in a while.
