Hi Sarah,

As has been said already, you're probably best sticking to water or sparkling water if you can't get any of the zero drinks. However, I have had the odd diet coke/other diet drink when in a tight spot and had no problems with it knocking me out of ketosis at all. So I don't think it's automatic, just possible depending on the person.

Enjoy your night!

Diet coke throws me out, I go for sparkling water

Citric acid affects some, but not all. Also even if you are one of those that gets affected, you may be able to tolerate a bit.

In reality it is a safeguard so that you stay in ketosis.
