    Diet Coke

    Ok so i went to movies on Valentines day which was my 7th day of induction and I wanted something while I was watching the movie so i had a extra large diet coke i also think i went a little over on my carbs that day too, but they weren't BAD carbs, they were all vegi and meat. Is that bad? i haven't cheated AT ALL on this diet and my keo stix said right before that day that i was WELL into keo. Am i ok?

    Well, diet sodas say 0 carbs on the back so I wouldnt worry too much, you didnt have any refined sugar or flower so I wouldnt worry much about it either.

    Probably not going to hurt you... but still better to stick to water during induction. And Diet-Coke has aspertame, which has been known to stall a lot of people.

    Hopefully you won't be one of them!

    During induction I drank two or three SF sodas a day. At some point during the last three months I've realized that I will now drink them only rarely. If I drink one can in a two or three week period, that would be it. That addiction took care of itself without my intervention. Geez, I sure wish I knew how that came about. I've got other areas I'd like to apply it to.

    Diet Soda

    I have drunk diet anything from day one on Atkins. I haven't noticed any propensity for it to stall me. I keep my food portions in moderation and I exercise daily and those are the important things. I say, if you want diet coke, have it. Just be sure you are exercising and not eating too much.

    Good Luck!

    I used to drink gallons of Diet Coke. But since being on Atkins I find this kind of beverage way to sweet. The only recommendation I'd make is to drink an extra glass of water above the 64oz/day, for each serving of coke to compensate for the caffeine.

    My point of view is that you were fine.

    Keep up the good work.

    I rarely drink soda, but usually have a diet coke when I'm eating out. I'm basically a cheap person, and don't like the idea of buying water

    I drink diet cokes and Dr. Peppers- not in horrific amounts or anything but they dont do me any harm. I ve never had a problem with them. Hilifig you need to quit worrying or you'll give yourself an ulcer. Your doing great, you'll loose weight- say that three times in front of the mirror everyday LOL

    The other day I was in a convenient store and saw Diet Coke with Lime. I just had to try it and I was pleasantly impressed by the taste, I enjoyed it. I was a bit of a soda junkie so I try not to drink to much soda anymore but this is now on my list for an occasion treat.

    Micky, that could possibly be a sign of dehydration, because caffeine is a dieuretic.

    8 glasses is the MINIMUM.... and caffiene does dry you out! I think the rule is for every cup of coffee/soft drink you drink you need to drink an additional 8 ounces of water (over and above the minimum 8-8 oz glasses)
