Is Zevia soda legal? I just found it at the grocery store. It comes in several flavors. I bought a couple of cans of Root Beer-Ginger but I'm a little afraid to drink one. It has zero calories, is all natural and is sweetened with stevia. What's the verdict?

It does contain erythritol, a sugar alcohol, that may or may not stall or slow your losses.

For me, sugar alcohols like erythritol, xylitol, etc. cause my weight to stall.
I may not do that for you.

I like the sodas.
Drink with caution on P2.

I will steer clear of them for now. I don't want to spoil my last few days of P2. But you think they are okay for P3?

I don't drink soda pop, as a rule, but thought it might be kind of a festive change from ACV water!

Go for it!

You can always add a little seltzer water to ACV!

At my clinic they say zevia is ok and they even sell it there. I tried the orange flavor and didn't like it, tasted like diet soda to me and I don't like diet soda.

Where you do find this Zevia? Is it in doctor's offices or online only? I would like to try it once I hit p3.

Thanks. I will give Fred Meyer a try. It looks like I am just across the Columbia from you. I appreciate the recommendation.

No. I am going to Transformations Med Spa in Vancouver. They are really quite reasonable, professional, and follow the exact original protocol. I like the doctor so I am actually going to see her as a primary care doctor in her family care practice as well. This way I won't have to explain to my doctor why I chose the HCG diet. The doctor actually offers the program because she personally used it herself and was impressed with the results.

I drank Zevia on P2 with no problems. I like the black cherry flavor the best. I got it at Fry's in their natural/organic area.

I drank Dr. Zevia the other night on P2 because I didn't see the carbs until I went for one today. I put it back, as I had a gain the day after my last one. sad4 BUT it could be various factors that caused it. Once I get a few good days under my feet I might try it again as an isolated thing and test results.

In the meantime, I am pretty darn happy with soda water with Root Beer stevia (8-10 drops per cup), and I know that's safe!
