I was on FB this morning, and someone posted a slushie (1 pkg of fruit punch, 1 can diet crush orange soda, sf raspberry syrup, ice) that I thought sounded good. She even said she checked with Nutrition Support that said it is on plan..

So I bought diet crush orange soda and got it home, then checked the label....did you know it has 25 calories and 6 g of carbs??? Is this true with all orange soda? Would you use it???.

Diet Sunkist would be my choice over diet Crush, but Sunkist has caffeine..

Comment #1

Not all diet soda's are created equal. ALWAYS read the labels..

Comment #2

Aldi & Kroger diet orange soda do not have carbs..

Comment #3

If I were to use it, then I would use it as my snack. There are other sf orange sodas out there that would have less carbs and zero calories. I think diet sunkist is 10 calories and no carbs. I always check the labels when I am in the store. It saves me from buying something that is probably not a wise choice..

Comment #4

Safeway and walmart generic do not.

Comment #5

Does this mean that flavored waters are ok (zero calorie, zero carb)? I love to have a bottle or two each day and would miss them..

Comment #6

I personally would not use it since there are other varieties without carbs. My carbs are precious. I use them very sparingly..

Comment #7

I had a whole glass full the other day BEFORE I got around to reading the label!!! UGH!! I promptly took it to work and have it away, lol. Learned my lesson, that even tho I've used diet for YEARS, they are not all equal! I've never strayed far from diet pepsi!.

Comment #8

Who knew! I always assumed diet sodas were calorie and carb free. But I really only like diet cherry pepsi...i wish it came in caff free. Hey speaking of that, why do we have to keep caffeine low?.

Comment #9

I'm drinking a diet sunkist now and it has 0 calories and 0 carbs. I heard about the crush and make sure I read all the labels to make sure now..

Comment #10

The suggestion to keep caffeine low is because you'll be more sensitive to it as your body gets all cleaned out. If you're happy as a chihuahua on crack, then go for it!.

Comment #11

Keep in mind that even though it says "0 carb" or "0 cal" - under the labeling laws, as long as it is less than "0.9" it can be labeled as "0". Well...those 0.9's can add up.

For example: Drink 3 "0 carb" "0 cal" flavored waters & you just had 2.7 hidden extra carbs & calories. Do that with enough things throughout the day & !.

Comment #13

No, I would not use it. I made that mistake early in the program, using it to flavor my shakes and then drinking the rest of the can. It threw me out of ketosis but reminded me to ALWAYS check the labels. "Diet" does not always mean 0 calories/carbs. Now I use diet Sunkist orange and lemonade. They do have some calories (5), 0 carbs and caffeine so I try not to drink them later in the day..

Comment #14

A very low calorie diet causes some people to be much more sensitive to lower levels of caffeine. I maintained my caffeine intake (didn't limit diet sodas, coffee, etc) until about month 5 when I suddenly started having bouts of what felt like low blood sugar episodes. It took me a day or two to figure out it was actually caffeine jitters, and diet Coke coupled with 2 Excedrin was the major culprit..

Comment #15

Ooops. The diet Sunkist orange has 0 calories/carbs. It's the diet Sunkist lemonade that has 5 calories/0 carbs..

Comment #16

What Da Vinci Sugar Free Cherry syrup in some caffine free diet pepsi? That's how they used to make them..
