    Diet coke

    Hi there

    I am new here and have done atkins before but did not read the book. I want to start again and was wondering if you were allowed to drink diet coke or coke zero while on the atkins? and is it also allowed in teh first two weeks?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks

    Totally agree. I normally only have one sugar free drink a day because they aren't that important to me, drink lots of water, and it does not seem to affect me. During OWL I would even drink a bottle of the store bought sparkling flavored water which had "some" aspertame in it, and it never bothered me.

    Still, push the water. AND read the book. Get a copy at a thrift store or used book exchange, or go to the Atkins website for their Induction series.

    Linda's low-carb site, www.genaw.com/lowcarb is also very helpful in its menus.

    And be sure and take your measurements...now! Write them down...track them...you will be astounded at the change in a short time! That's all my advice for today! LOL!

    My best to you!

    Thank you for all your advice, I think i will go out and buy the book to get a better understanding of the diet.

    I will definitely take some measurements and will keep you all posted.

    Thanks again

    I drinking diet soda's all the time. I wish that I didn't, but it doesn't seem to keep me from losing weight. I did kick that habit the first time that I did atkins. Its certainly on my list of things to do after I get at my happy weight.
