Diet Coke

11 posts in this topic

I've been gluten free less than two weeks and things seems to be going okay. However, I have given up Diet Coke due to the fact that I don't know whether or not I can have it. So far it seems to be the only item I've missed. Being so new to this, I am doing research but haven't found an exact answer to whether or not I can have Diet Coke. Does anyone know whether or not it is allowed on a gluten-free diet?

Side note: I visited Chili's restaurant this week and my server actually knew what gluten-free was and brought me an appropriate menu--I was completely surprised by this. (We live in a relatively small town and I was afraid that eating out would be a nightmare) I was able to enjoy my meal and didn't have any side affects!

Diet coke is gluten-free, but some people who are sensitive may react to the artificial flavors and sweeteners.

Re: eating out - it can be difficult and emotionally trying. I usually bring along my own condiments (gluten-free soy sauce, cocktail sauce, sald dressing, etc.). It does seem like more and more restaraunts are getting on the gluten-free bandwagon - I don't know if you have a Chipoltle's nearby, but nearly everything they have (including the chips and maragritas!) minus the tortillas is gluten free. I LOVE that place.

Good luck,

zax

Completely off topic from diet coke, but, was the Chiles gluten-free menu kid friendly? I know the Outback has a gluten-free menu also so I have been checking out safe places to go with a 5 year old.

You are correct. It's bad for you. Moderation is key.

Diet Coke along with most soft drinks are gluten free. All soft drinks by Pepsi and Coke are gluten free. I have heard that it interferes with the absorption of calcium so I try to limit my intake. I have heard it takes 30 glasses of water to neutralize the acid in one can of soda!

Most people have coffee with their breakfast. I drink Diet Coke with mine. I like my caffeine cold :D . I figure I could be addicted to worse things. B)

Yes, there were two entrees for children, one was the burger without a bun and I can't remember the other one-sorry. The shake that they make for kids was also on the menu--if a dedicated blender was used. Good luck!

Enjoy your diet Coke, it is gluten-free.

Awesome! Thank you--I will limit my Diet Coke dosage, but I am so glad to know that I can have one every once in a while!

Me too! I've been drinking OJ instead, it's nice to know I can substitute a Diet Coke!

    • Hi Matt. Nice to meet someone from the U.K Thank you for your encouraging reply :). Yeah, I'm sure we all make mistakes at the start. I have however changed all my cutlery, plates, chopping boards and binned my toaster as I can't eat gluten-free bread due to the egg intolerance. I do think my house is completely gluten free. I do wish I could eat more. I can't do rice/grains or potatoes either. The only thing my stomach seems content with is chicken and veggies. Thanks for listening.   R
    • Wow, I was on the EXACT same stuff, it is basically medical speed, amphetamine. Yeah it will motivate you but it is addictive and withdrawal is a real nightmare with it. I use EXTRA b-vitamins and give myself a extra kick with a red eye coffee sometimes now days to avoid those pills. And I do not want to go through that withdrawal again. I would honestly suggest a 5-hour no sugar energy shot and some cocoa nibs and hemp seed snack mix over those pills anyway. Sorta what gets me by now days.  THIS is going to sound really really odd, but I makes this great sprinkle for depression and energy made with ground cocoa nibs form ciro bru, hemp protein powder, and a sweetener like pyure, or xylitol and just sprinkle it over or in stuff. The blend of hemp and cocoa really helps my mood in combination with the Stress & Energy mix. I think the magnesium I take daily also contributes. I honestly can not get mad, sad, or depressed no matter what for the past 3 weeks.....like the most messed up stuff has happened and I just go "Oh well it will work out" ....and I mean some really bad stuff has happened this month lol.
    • So I have one pesky symptom that in the last few years has cropped up and never gone away. Lack of motivation to do some very basic things. So basic it's embarrassing to talk about. I barely manage to do a lot of adult tasks these days. It's a real stretch. It's like something is blocking me. Anyways, so I'm talking to my psych and she suggests adderal for it as we've tried lots of different avenues for this issue and none have helped. My bipolar is totally under control, for an entire year so far. My anxiety is ok with a script. It'll be even better once I get one major thing that I won't get into here taken care of. But I'm not the super motivated, extremely hard working person I used to be. It really changed basically when I got sick about 9 years ago. So, does anyone else take adderal? I've got the pills next to me but worried to take them. Not sure why. Any help, advice, reassurance is welcome.
    • Yeah I need someone to attend with me, I had someone else but they canceled on me. The hotel room is booked from the 16th-20th of August. I can pick up from the airport, greyhound, or train station and drop off if need be, room is booked from the 16th technically a day before the convention so you have time for sightseeing. Room is a double queen and you get your own bed. It is a anime convention with many Japanese guest this year, I will provide snacks, meals, etc with the room fee and I will accept paypal, credit card, or cash. Meals will be made decided on after talking with whoever is rooming with a diet build around what you can eat. The room will be gluten, corn, dairy, and peanut free. I do bring a chef kit with me including griddle, steamer, rice cooker, etc.
    • No anti-sm(lupus)? Yes, anti dsDNA is for SLE(lupus). No ENA panel,anti-RNP, anti-SS-A, anti-SS-B, anti histone, scl-70, etc? I'd ask for a referral, if you feel that there is something going on. I think that would be a logical step because of the positive ANA and lack of investigation. 1:640 is definitely positive.
