Technically, the other cancer causing ones are allowed as well, you know the aspartame and nutrasweet stuff. Whether or not you utilize that is up to you. What’s hard about all this is who knows, we may find that stevia causes cancer in a few years too you know? And there also has to be the consideration of what I like to call sanity saving. If having a very small amount of something is going to save your sanity, and allow you to get over a hump that will aid you to your 50 lb weight loss, even if it’s not the best thing in the world, I might just choose to do that right? So yes, I had a few diet cokes on hCG. I wouldn’t make it a daily thing, but when desperate, a diet coke over an entire Pizza binge on Phase 2 – well you make the choice. When it comes to the sugar alcohols, I think you have to be more careful as it seems that these can more likely interact with your blood sugar and effect your weight loss. When in doubt leave it out (unless desperate) and track what you do so that you can adjust when needed.
