    Hi there

    Just a quick question - is it OK to drink soda water and or Indian tonic water? I have been drinking both and I'm in ketosis on day 4 but don't want to slow my weight loss down.

    Thank you!

    I'm afraid it's a nono for both of those. Have you tried sparkling mineral water?

    It's more than carbonated water. Sparkling water is carbonated water. Tonic and soda water usually have sweeteners, extra salts in the form of potassium etc. The potassium can cause water retention which can be demotivating. The sweeteners can interfere with ketosis. Sure there's other reasons too, but it's recommended that you stay off them

    Sparkling mineral water is allowed though as it's just carbonated water :)

    just a thought, if you use a soda stream, once you have the fizz in is that ok to drink?
