Will drinking Coke Zero, while doing the Keto diet, kick me out of ketosis?

  • Some say yes, some say no. I鈥檓 guessing no?  

    You can Experiment by checking your blood ketones after having one because we are all different .  馃憤

  • I have been in  ketosis for 3 months straight and has lost  50 lbs as of this morning and even though I think I should quit,  I still drink Coke Zero daily.   I also put artifical sweetner in my coffee.   This morning I am now down 50 lbs  and my Glucose to Ketone ratio is 1.

  • I doubt it would truly kick you out of ketosis, but it could still have a temporary effect. Anytime there is a rise in insulin the production of ketones will be slowed or stopped.

    There was one study I heard of where even the mere taste of sweetness in the mouth, whether from actual sugar or from certain zero calorie artificial sweetener, caused a rise in insulin levels. The test subjects never ingested the sweet liquid, only held it in their mouth and then spat it out, but the body still responded with an increase in insulin levels.

  • This must be person specific.  I have taken blood samples pre an post artificial sweetener consumption and have noticed no difference.

  • Mpetershat  There are 2 that I know of      Keto Mojo and Fora6. They are not cheap though, at least to me they are not. I have a Fora6

    Another model for checking blood is the Precision Xtra. The glucose and ketone test strips are separate. Ketone test strips for all devices tend to be pricey.

    Looks like the one that Dr. Boz recommends is the Fora6 as @Mpetersthat mentioned.  It used to be called foracare?

  • HelloDolly HelloDolly  If you were to vomit into a toilet, that would also clean toilets except it would not smell as good.  It is all about the acidity level.   

    hydrochloric acid

    Gastric acid. Gastric acid, gastric juice, or stomach acid, is a digestive fluid formed in the stomach and is composed of hydrochloric acid (HCl), potassium chloride (KCl), and sodium chloride (NaCl).

  • HelloDolly   I also drink and eat many things with the  "chemical" vinegar in it.   Yet I clean and sanitize almost everything in my house with it.      Chemicals are necessary for your body.      Salt is on the periodic table, a chemical.

    Mpetershat wow amazing. I have been on Keto since the end of April this year. 2019. I have only lost 16 pounds but not truly complaining or thinking of quitting. I feel better look better clothing fits better and I鈥檓 happy I am not consuming sugar as I am a cancer survivor. But wow 50 pounds! Unbelievable, are you a male? My daughter has lost over 100 pounds and her husband too on keto but took them around a year. He lost much faster.

    Andrew Meyer oh my Lord that would be my body. Maybe that鈥檚 why it takes me so long to lose a pound. When I allow myself a strawberry the sweetness is overwhelming!

  • Take2asap   In general, males lose weight easier.  I went all-in on this eating plan and included intermittent fasting and occasional extended fasting.    I am currently off of all medicines,  without my doctor's approval and will get new lab tests paid by myself in a month or 2 to follow up.    I monitor BP daily.
