Diet coke detox

Common Questions and Answers about Diet coke detox


Avatar n tn Good grief! That's alot of diet coke! Glad you gave it up! I think you aren't having detox effects but rather kidney disease. You need a full work up. It is possible your adrenals are shot as well. They don't cope so well on high caffeine and you may have damaged them.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
1034911 tn?1389549666 After starting to come off of the Excedrin on Tuesday, on Friday I had a killer Migraine and started the 3 day course of Decadron and have been doing really well. I have also tried to lower my Diet Coke intake, and will continue working on that! If you have went through this, how long did it take for you to get through this? I am worried since I took the only Decadron I have, that when I go to work tomorrow that a killer Migraine will appear again. Any input??? Thank you!
1198242 tn?1265186518 -) I know, I know - you're trying to do anything possible to feel a bit more human. Not the answer. Try to put only REALLY GOOD things in your body right now. And drink camomille tea - as much as possible. It will calm you down a bit and make you go to the bathroom (#1). Get all the bad stuff out of your system. Eat good food. Replace your electrolytes. And try to get out of the house, even if its for only a 30 min walk. Every day. The better you feel, the more you should exercise.
Avatar n tn Yesterday I felt like maybe my heart rate was up a bit, but I had stupidly had a big Diet Coke right before the drink mix (which also has caffeine) so I think maybe that was the culprit. It didnt last long. No side effects so far, and sleeping great, but I am not drinking this in the evening. I am going to try to skip the diet coke today altogether since the mix has caffeine. I also know I will not double up next week since I am not even drinking 2 a day now.
Avatar f tn I am currently on the hcg injections from the Native Healing Ways clinic. Does anyone have any recipes for this 500 calorie diet? The information that the clinic has provided does list a few recipes but I would like to expand a bit as I am becoming board with current food choices. Also, I am mostly a vegetarian but eat some fish. Thanks!

EX: We are all junkies! Just one big dysfunctional family! Addiction was a term used to describe a devotion, attachment, dedication, inclination, etc. EX: I am devoted to Vicodin! Detox, short for detoxification, in general is the removal of toxic substances from the body. EX: Detox fukin' *****!
921998 tn?1278363878 I have been successful. but not under doctors care while doing this....I have also reduced my intake of diet coke from 12-14 a day to 2....Amazingly my pain has been remarkable....but I am very depressed with no energy .....My family is giving me a hard time telling me that this is very dangerous....Does anyone have any knowledge about detoxing yourself....I have no desire at all for any of my pain meds....just so tired with no energy....
362249 tn?1441318618 , there are a ton of other helpful tips on foods to eat to increase your chances. And there is a detox diet specific to fertility if you are taking a cycle off or taking a break for a month (like me). I'm hoping that a changed diet, combined with acupuncture and some physical therapy will help. Good luck!
2169060 tn?1337634832 Then one day, I went into a grocery store and picked up a six pack of “regular” Coke, not diet. A recovering food addict I was with noticed it, and I took it back. Soon after, I started drinking whole pots of decaf coffee at every meal, then more than one pot per meal. I was unwilling to stop until I got some help from a recovered food addict.
464044 tn?1343705643 Good luck.I don't think I could go without my diet coke for caffeine so I understand.I've been doing my detox at home and haven't had any help.I'm glad that you will be in a place with support.My thoughts will be with you.
Avatar f tn took the edge off the extreme symptoms of bloating. also acupuncture did really help. i had forgotten about my stomach and had an iced diet coke and the bloating started up again.
9299142 tn?1402945143 I'm now 7 months pregnant n I have completely quit drinking alcohol but every once in a while I still drink a diet coke n I've heard diet sodas r bad but how bad n how much damage might I have done ...
Avatar f tn Does anyone know what the vitiman supliments are and what is the best way to get aspartame out of your system the safest. My main sourse is Diet Coke. 6-8 per day. If I don't drink it my throught get scratchy, major headache, very thirsty (even water doesn't cure the thirst).
5685035 tn?1423936569 Then the 90 days of hell I stopped eating again, mostly because of the crack and coke but even when I wasnt using I stopped eating. During detox I couldnt physically eat. lost a LOT of weight... Well Journal NOW I cant eat again...but I know its not healthy and at work i do eat 2 times a day. i try to eat once a day on days off..I started working out...I know its control & self esteem though the need 2 feel thin consumes me...
Avatar f tn I was a Diet Coke addict (down to 1 can a day) until my Lyme symptoms got pretty bad. My research led me to magnesium deficiency (I had 9 of 10 symptoms) and it said that soda contributes to mag deficiency. I also read about how bad aspartame is, especially in someone who is not completely healthy, and decided to stop. I have been drinking only water with the occasional lactose free milk or herbal tea, and I can say that after about 15 months, I am well over my addiction.
Avatar f tn It's me...I don't like feeling this way.I've always been so strong.But I guess we are entitled to a pity party once in a while,lol.I wish I had planned this better and had more of a support system.I had no idea it would be so rough.My son,when here,has been great.He is so funny...he brought me ice cream & diet coke and I was thinking yuuukk,lol...but I ate a little bit so he would feel appreciated.
306455 tn?1288865671 Holy ****!! I drank Diet Pepsi for years! My Mom drinks Diet Coke and she has MS.........thats ****ed up!!
Avatar f tn I've been avoiding Caffiene every time I have anxiety attack episode (which is from opiate WD.) So I feel anxiety and suddenly stop all diet coke and coffee cold turkey, feel like hell with flu like symptoms and anxiety for days, then feel better and start to drink Caffiene.....and repeat. I just looked up Caffiene withdrawal and among others mood swings, depression, anxiety, insomnia, fatigue and flu symptoms are some things listed!!!
Avatar m tn I am 52 and have been addict since 17, always the pot and then the coke. I went into the military to stop the coke, married a man who kept me away from that. But still and always there were the pills. I got divorced and started with the coke again. That led to the crack because it was cheaper and it destroyed my life I had to leave town to get away from it. Then pain management out here the last 3 yrs, thought the pills were better than the crack.
464044 tn?1343705643 I got them from my boyfriend and stayed right around 60 a month. So on January 23, we broke up. I had this rebellious attitude, knew better than to try coke, but really didn't care. I was depressed and self concious. For some crazy reason I thought I could do coke as a diet drug and a f#!k it drug and quit when I was ready. Yeah right!!! When I started, I'd spend like $20 a day, in about a week it was $50.
Avatar m tn It will greatly increase you cortisol levels. Even if the drink is just diet coke or black coffee. Please read my thread. I plan to add more to it later.
Avatar n tn now it's strictly diet coke or water!!
Avatar f tn I do take Prozac and drink lots of diet coke ( for depression and tiredness, respectively) I am stunned at how easy it was to get the Vicodin from my Doc and then on the street. I was hooked about 3yrs taking about 60mg's 0f hydro/day. I thank God everyday for HIS power in Christ.
7174034 tn?1390854110 Congrats Em to you & your husband. I'll be there in 20. I can relate on the pop/soda thing. I was a diet pepsi guy & would chug at least 8 12oz cans a day. In college i was in love with Coke (not that coke!!) but put weight on me. I had to keep to a weight of no more than 245lbs for football so i went to diet coke. That started keeping me up at night & then went to diet caffeine free coke. Then found Pepsi was better in the diet dept...

Avatar f tn These are best to try before formal detox and drugs like Suboxone. I had to do formal detox because I tried everything else, including alcohol to get off and nothing worked for me. Keep in mind that when you try… make it a good one! Have some time off of work if you can… maybe a four day weekend or more. Make the last day of work without any drugs, because the first day is usually the easiest.
Avatar f tn I'm an on day 18 from vics and morph addiction. I am so tired I keep drinking diet coke to help me get some energy but I wonder if it hinders the healing process? Anybody have any advice, I am sooo tired I just want this to end! HELP me please!
