    like i said it doesn't cause me to over eat, If anything it stops me from over eating.

    I drink 1.5+ liters of water a day on top on a can of coke zero.

    Shouldn't be a problem then?

    If you are drinking that much water and only 1 can of coke zero a day, I wouldnt worry about it. As someone else said, the plateau is probably coincidental - we all have/will hit at least 1 plateau on our journey, regardless of what we eat or drink.

    it has 0 caleries= how does it have 2 caleries when its called coke zero- wow !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! all diet pop has 0 cals
    and fake sugar

    If you read the back of a bottle of coke zero it says 2 cals.

    I have a bottle of Coke Zero in front of me and it says 0 calories per bottle in several places on it. Are you sure it's Coke zero you are talking about? Or is it different in the States? (I'm in Canada)

    cliffs: unless you have Phenylketonuria and you are not drinking litres and litres per day, don't worry about it. Your weight loss plateau is coincidental.

    However, don't give your pet rats diet coke as they "may" get cancer :laugh:

    Just what a like to hear!

    I can enjoy my can now :flowerforyou:

    Diet Coke also has 2 calories. The Zero is not for calories, it's Zero SUGAR.

    Personally I had a huge Diet Coke addiction. I have tried and tried to kick it and every single time it's crept it's way back into my diet. At the moment I'm 1.5 weeks off the stuff and I feel better. I was drinking masses of it though and eating heaps of sugary and salty stuff along with it.

    I personally don't think that a small amount is terrible, however I will let you know that I have fatty changes in my liver - there have been links between artificial sweeteners and liver changes/damage. I think if you're drinking small amounts it's not an issue. But if you are replacing sugar then I recommend going with plant-derived natural sweetenersxylitol, stevia or agave rather than aspartame or phenylalanine.

    The rest of the Time eat eat pretty cleanly, I'm not a huge processed food fan anymore (peanut buttercups still get me though). Also if i have sugar in tea or whatever i have sugar I have never used a replacement before coke zero is just my weekness

    Not long because of the low cal factor, I really just don't like regular coke either!

    In this case the Zero Is for zero calories, as that's how they advertise it on the Coke site =)http://productnutrition.thecoca-colacompany.com/products/coca-cola-zero#nutrition

    Either way I totally agree with you about small amounts not being terrible. I've never tried stevia, but use agave once in a while and it's a good sweetener.

    I was drinking Coke Zero off and on and still losing weight earlier on. =) So don't think it effects it too much as long as you don't over do it.

    I only drink Coke Zero once in awhile, or even just once a month, as a treat. So I should be safe there, right?

    That is so wild! I wonder why it's different there?? That's it, I am going to start adding 2 Calories to my food list when I have a Coke Zero, just in case. I wonder if that 0 calorie Mio water enhancers are the same?

    Hello again ;) haha.

    when I was anorexic, drunk diet coke all day every day along with 400 other calories and lost 63lbs, so I call lies on the fact it can make you gain weight, but then again I think it's impossible to gain eating 400 calories.

    edit : 63lbs in three months.

    I was just reading about the calorie thing. From what I read the formula is basically the same, but the ingredients vary by country. Something gives its an extra couple cals. Its funny though, because unless they changed it, In the US anything with 5 or less calories can be claimed as no calorie. Sorry to hijack. Nerd tip of the day.

    the reason it's different is because in the US anything less than 5cals can be labelled as zero, just like all your cooking sprays.

    Australia is just a little bit more accurate :laugh:



























































    And that's why we overtook you guys as the most obese country in the world :tongue:

    From my perspective as a nursing graduate..if you check on the nutrition label sodium and sugar has the highest numbers.sodium causes water retention specially to us dieters who tends to drink alot of water and can make you gain weight.. also goes with sugar too much sugar can cause you diseases like obesity which is also one of the risk factors of diabetes milletus..so most doctors recommend sugar substitute but be careful with too much sugar substitute too it can cause too much potassium - potassium also can give you heart dysrythmias if taken too much.

    There is no sugar in Diet Coke.
