Seeing as Coke Zero has no sugar and no calories, is it actually bad for you? I know it's obviously not good for you as it has no nutrients but I'm trying to lose weight at the moment but I have such a problem with snacking. Not because I'm hungry but because I'm bored. I've started drinking Coke Zero when I feel like snacking as I know it has no calories and I'm just focusing on eating my main 3 meals. I'm just wondering if Coke Zero is going to have a negative impact on my health?

It contains sweetners and caffeine which are controversial, but in reality all the science is they are safe and in fact there is some good evidence for the positive effects of caffeine on mental agility. No ones ****ging off coffee to the same degree for caffeine. I think a sensible intake of these drinks can add interest to life and assist with dieting with no harm.

Because it is fizzy, despite having no sugar, it is still bad for your teeth.

In reality the sweeteners in the juice activate your hunger hormones, so if you ever feel like eating or snacking after drinking them this is why.

I think it's just making it a little harder for you if you are doing well at 3 meals a day, I'm not saying go of it but have 1-2 tins per week

Caffeine in moderation is okay, too much and youll fall into withdrawal on the occasions that you dont get your caffeine.
Often 'diet' drinks will contain horrible sweeteners e.g acesulfame K in coke zero. These are insulinogenic and will cause your blood sugar level to spike resulting in more carbohydrates being used (this is the how it makes you more energetic, caffeine works differently), and unused energy will be stored as fat as it cant be converted back.

According to my experience event drinking diet-coke can harm your overall strength and diet.
