    Coke Zero during Cutting?


    Would Coke 'Zero' with 0 sodium, 0 calories and 0 sugar offset your insulin, GH, glucagon, leptin, or cortisol levels to any significant degree?

    It contains sucralose, which is 600 x more sweet than sugar but similar to stevia and splenda in structure which is does not metabolize but simply passes through your digestive system making it calorically free, and acesulfame-potassium. Thoughts?

    Seems to good to be true to me.

    In other words, chug away?

    I think I'm gonna tear up a bit, what with just having weighed up my meals for the next 3 low carb days..what a relief.

    I go weeks where I drink a 2 liter Pepsi Max a day and then sometimes I wont drink it at all. No difference at all.

    Okay thanks. I find it ruins my appetite for water, as it so sugarly tasting that you can't drink it nearly as fast as water, nor do I want to.

    Afterwards I notice that I've been sipping it, mostly to wet my mouth here and there, instead of gulping down water like I usually try to do to get my 2 gallons minimum a day.

    Just a few cans @ first, I've noticed I've amped it to like 1-2 a day but I think I'm gonna cut back a fair bit, I don't like how sugarly it is. Maybe only on weekends when I'm studying for my college CSEP.

    I have 1-2 diet sodas a day. During prep more. At teh end of prep I drink up to 4. It makes me feel full and it tastes awesome and sometimes it just helps put me a good mood. I enjoy the hell out of it. I've even drank it up to the day of the show with no problems.

    I keep diet soda in my prep (just for sanity) up until a week before show or photo shoot and suffer zero detrimental effects in terms of fat loss results.

    Do you have any biological interaction evidence to support this claim?

    Good info here. I've been avoiding Soda's like the plague cause I thought the carbonation had some effects on muscles...
