Is Coke Zero Good For Diabetes

September 11, 2019


Hello, I’m Ty Mason from TheDiabetesCouncil.com,
researcher, writer and a type2 diabetic. Today I’m going to answer the question, is
Coke Zero good for diabetes. But before we get into that, make sure you
download my free diabetes shopping list, ‘The Diabetes Shopping List: Foods to Eat and Foods
to Avoid’ by clicking the link below.” One of the first fears I had when I was diagnosed
with diabetes was that I was going to have to give up soft drinks, pop, soda, whatever
you call it where you live. The reason being I was told when I was younger
that diet soda caused cancer or you might grow a second head or something. I loved my soft drinks, so I was in kind of
a panic. So I set out to find out the real scoop on
diet soda, and in particular, Coke Zero, one of my favorites. MYTH #1 Coke Zero will cause cancer Coke Zero or any other diet soft drink has
been linked to cancer thanks to a study conducted by Morando Soffritti. Soffritti used lab rats to test the effects
on aspartame (NutraSweet) long term. His conclusion was that aspartame played a
significant role as a carcinogen. The problem with his methodology was that
Soffritti gave the rats more aspartame than a human could possibly ingest in a life time. Several studies have been conducted since
and have found no link whatsoever between aspartame and cancer. As far as Coke Zero is concerned it does use
aspartame but not in the concentrations that some other diet sodas use. It also uses Splenda as an artificial sweetner. MYTH #2 Diet soda is harmless. Because there are no calories, sugars or carbs
in diet soda, many people think it is harmless. But there is a higher concentration of acid
in diet drinks. As a matter of fact, diet drinks are much
more acid than “regular” soda. This can lead to acid reflux and premature
tooth decay. MYTH #3 I can lose a lot of weight by drinking Coke
Zero. While Coke Zero and many other diet drinks
have no calories or sugars, they also have no nutritional value either. There have actually been studies that link
massive consumption of diet soda to weight gain and even diabetes! Is Coke Zero, or any diet soda good for the
diabetic? Like with anything else, a diet drink in moderation
is fine for the diabetic who needs that sparkly fizz now and then. But it is also a good idea to substitute a
few of those Coke Zeros for glasses of water. Coke Zero won’t give you brain cancer or
cause you to grow a second head, but it also not the ideal thirst quencher for those with
diabetes. I hope this answered your question is Coke
Zero good or bad for diabetes. Don’t forget to get your diabetes shopping
list by clicking the link in the description box below. Let me know if you have any other diabetes
related questions. Thank you I am Ty Mason

    Ummm ANYTHING in moderation is ok for diabetes type 2 … living with it…. it's not what you can't consume it's what you can… sure you can live on a low carb diet, free from tasteless foods, or you can have a little of something at a time, half a banana, or half a baked potato, or half cup of rice, or one slice of white bread… 30–75 grams of carbohydrate per meal and 15–30 grams for snacks, with your regular meds, Glipizide or Metformin <– (bad juju IMHO) and Lisinopril to help protect those kidneys and lower blood pressure. So this vid, appreciated but you're preaching to the choir….

    I’m pretty sure drinking something “diet” that will spike blood sugars and insulin isn’t good for diabetics.

    I quit drinking Pepsi and ALL sodas. I now only drink water, unsweetened ice tea with lemon and unsweetened Almond milk. That's it. All sodas regular or diet are bad for you, especially if you are Diabetic.

    In terms of information about overall health as well as diabetes treatment method, I have found this “Vαnοjο Fivu” (Google it) simple to follow and incredibly good. By this plan, you can change your lifestyle and diet without having to be particular about your carb or calorie. After shifting to a more healthy and greener life style, I did not just lose fat but also I`m also free of diabetic issues and also high blood pressure! It`s correct that you truly could reverse diabetes…
