You will get more responses if you post questions in the Daily chat threads, more people visit there!
But to answer your question, diet soda is NOT recommended when you are on IP. Even though it is 0 calories and 0 carbs/0 sugar, diet soda contains sodium (not the same as the sea salt we are supposed to have) and phosphates which are not good for your body and can throw off the pH balance in your digestive system. Also many diet sodas are sweetened with aspartame, which should be avoided as well.
