On page 29 it lists negative waters. Coffee, tea and diet soda have an asterick. And says *coffee and tea are allowed but do not count toward your 8 glasses of water. Is diet soda allowed?

That confused me also.

It confused me as well, but I am staying clear of them. As hard as it is… I love my carbonated drinks.

I am going to try to stay away from diet soda too. That will be my biggest challenge.

I was addicted to diet sodas before starting the diet I was drinking 100+ ounces a day. Tomorrow will one week without one and it was easier than I never imaged. You can do it, if I can give them up anyone can.

I’m addicted to diet coke—badly!!!!!  I’m starting the diet tomorrow (just got my book yesterday) and will give up diet coke cold turkey.  Meanwhile, I’m having my last 7-Eleven big gulp before I go to bed!!!!!!!!! :-)

I too was confused about the diet soda, the wat it reads with the * would lead me to believe that it is a negative w1ater, but if you HAVE to have it limit it to very little. So far I have been able to stay away from them. I am also an addict for soda!! Good luck everyone

I’m not a soda drinker, but maybe La Croix flavored fizzy water would be ok and give you a “fizzy” fix.  The La Croix flavors are really good.  I’m not sure if it counts as regular water, but it seems like it is ok – no sugar, calories etc.

I had one small glass of tonic water with lime. It was quite good but I have decided to stay with lemon water and green tea for the first 17 days. I will eventually change to cold, herbal, camomille tea flavored with a small amount of stevia which is really good. I was a diet pepsi lover but have given it up as I have read how detrimental soda is to the body. I am afraid if have “just one,” that I will slip permanently. I think it is a matter of lifestyle change and a huge committment that will be worthwhile during and after the 17-Day Diet.

I’m a diet coke addict (embarrassed to say that I probably drink 6-9 a day). Anyway, the caffeine and other stuff make it a negative water. You can drink them all you want, but you stil have to drink 8 glasses of plain water. Just not enough time in the day for all that fluid. So, I have the lemon water on my way to work. I get to work and immediately have a diet coke with my breakfast. Then the green tea, which has 1/2 the caffeine of diet coke. I start getting a caffeine withdrawal headache at around 3:00, so I have another diet coke. I’m only having them when I start getting the headache. So, I’m down to about 3-4 a day. I’m getting there.

I am a diet coke addict too.  Well until I started this.  I had to go through with withdrawal, but took excederin to help with the caffeine.  it has caffeine in it, so my withdrawal was almost headache free.  I have not had diet coke in 10 days.  I know that it just is not good for me.  I like the green tea cold with lots of ice.  I am shocked that I am okay with out pop.  I really didn’t know I could do this.

I, too, am addicted to Diet Coke. After 2 days off of them I started getting that headache… So I bought a 16oz and take a sip when the headache really get’s bad. I only took 3 sips today. I will be off of them in 3 days. I did it before for 8 months and I will do it again!!!!

I liked my carbonated drinks, too, especially diet Wild Cherry Pepsi but found that I can do without by substituting the plain 11 oz. Perrier or 8 oz. Pelligrino which is just carbonated water and goes toward the 64 ozs. daily. The hot lemon water is another story…have to add a packet of Truvia to get it down!

I also like a soda.  I found Diet Rite Pure Zero- It has no sodium, no caffine, no sugar, no carbs, no calories.  It does not have an after taste.  It does have splenda.  But if I need my soda fix it the best alternative I have found. I just make my self drink a glass of water after I have on.
