ITS not the carbonation, its the aspartame- that will mess you up big time. carbonation can inhibit sports proformance but not diet. diet coke with splenda would be okay but tastes funny. I know for a fact the diet rite tangerine does NOT affect ketosis... i did my own little experiment.... but i did have a diet sprite when i was very nauseous one day and it threw me out of ketosis for half a day. it is the aspartame. water IS best tho.
