Long Answer: Dr Pepper Zero is not ok
Yes I know I just contradicted myself but here is why.
Diet drinks have artificial sweeteners in them to give them that yummy taste we all love. Unfortunately, even though the sweetener is fake, the body still reacts to it as if it’s real.
This is bad because it triggers an insulin response. Without going into too much detail this can basically slow down your body’s ability to burn fat and remember on a keto diet you want your body to be as efficient as it can at burning fat.
