You might be better posting this in a specific diet thread, where they know more about ketosis..... maybe a vlcd thread.
Personally I have no idea. Sorry!

Citric acid is a big nono.

malic acid is also a 'no' I'm afraid. There was a theory that malic acid was okay from week 3 in moderatation, but many people found that it was making them hungry and starting to crave so it's not 'allowed' any more.

The CD drink flavourings from week 3 are often a life savour. Sparkling water is also good if you need that 'fizz' and you can have that from day 1 :)

Therefore the CD water flavourings are a no-no. The flavourings containg Malic acid also. :confused:

Well, not exactly, but I can understand the confusion. The flavourings are restricted for a start. From week 3 (as earlier can cause problems), 1 teaspoon a day (which would be hard to translate into cans of coke), and only with care as the CD flavourings can also cause problems for those 'more sensitive'.

I know that some people can drink these things without a problem and that's fine, but I also hear of people drinking them, thinking it's fine, feeling okay after, but then wondering why the diet is so darn difficult and why they keep craving other things.

Might not be related, but IMO it's best to keep to the CD stuff for the best possible outcome :)
