    I drink way too much Diet Coke. I have been trying to cut back lately. My doctor really gets on me about it.

    What is your doctor concerned about?

    She doesn't like the sodium. She wants me to drink water only. Boring

    How low does she want you to keep your intake?

    Diet Coke has 35 mg of sodium per can. I know you said you drink way too much diet soda, but is this really a prominent contributor to your overall sodium intake that your doctor feels this is the best way to limit your sodium to a healthy level for whatever condition you’re working to manage?

    out of interest what are the comparative salt figures for Pepsi Max vs Diet Coke.

    did not know there was any significant difference

    sodium is 13mg per 100ml in pepsi max- according to the can in my fridge.

    I do not have any diet coke cans to compare but if anyone does, that would be interesting.

    I’m Canadian so here’s our Diet Coke info,

    Here’s the Coke Zero,

    And here’s the Diet Pepsi which I like because it’s sweeter than those 👆 other two

    I used to drink diet coke a lot - every day 1 or 2 - but started reducing it probably about 10 years ago. I would only drink it occasionally and when I ate fast food. I haven't had one at all since December or January.

    I'm not sure about your particular water source, but the the example diet sodas given above are approximately 70-100 mg/L. Water varies and averages lower, but quite a few municipal water sources and bottled waters have sodium levels that are equivalent or above the levels in diet soda. Some mineral waters are WELL above that.
