    Hi everyone, I know there's a bit of a debate going on as to whether it's ok to have Coke Zero when on CD since it's not in the official book (although apparently some CDC's are saying it's ok).

    Well, just letting you know that Coke Zero and Dr Pepper Zero don't list citric acid in it's ingredients whereas Sprite Zero and Lilt Zero does have citric acid in it.

    Just thought it would be handy to know if anyone does give in to a bottle of pop. At least if you know you can do a bit of damage limitation! :devilangel:

    cambridge don't condone zero cal drinks, not because of carb content, but because they tend to give people the munchies and make them crave conventional food again and people come off plan. it used to be allowed and was removed for sabotaging people's stamina on the diet.

    hope that helps.

    Well for those who either choose to ignore that advice or have a weak moment (we're all human!) then atleast they can see which drinks are more likely to knock them out of ketosis rather than assuming all 'Zero' drinks are ok (but obviously none are ideal)
