I just want to make sure cause I'm just starting the diet. So if I downed a whole can of it, thats still ok?

Depends...what type of sweetener does it use? Some people are sensitive to aspartame and it kicks them out of ketosis.

You will basically have to experiment for yourself! Once you know you are in ketosis, try having a few tablespoons and then check a an hour or two later to see if you are still in. If you are, then up the "dosage" ;) Some people arent sensitive at all (I am not sensitive to anything but carbs) whereas others are sensitive to the smallest amount. If you drink a lot of diet soda, then I am sure you probably wont be!! Good luck, let us know how it goes :D

Mike, Do you train ?

If you do, I would like to encourage you to check out our keto section.

Atkin's is more for sedentary people.

A CKD is for athletes and people who train and want to keep training at a higher level while cutting.

Agree with Chi town, Atkins is not for hard training bodybuilders.
