DIET AND SPORTS SOFT DRINKS

Diet and sports soft drinks

Update to 2004 edition from Elaine:
Diet soft drinks are permitted occasionally. Those sweetened with aspartame or Nutri-Sweet may sometimes contain lactose and should be avoided if possible. However, if this is the only type available, one per week is permitted. Diet soft drinks sweetened with saccharin need not be limited to only one a week: 2-3 weekly would be permissible.
DO NOT USE DIET SOFT DRINKS SWEETENED WITH ANY OTHER SWEETENER
-
some can aggravate intestinal problems to a great extent. Bottled water without any additive is permissible but those which have been marketed as "sport drinks," or have added fiber, vitamins, or minerals should be avoided.

The book should be required reading for anyone with Crohn's disease and we wish gastroenterologists would read it as well. The diet is a real alternative to the drug based therapy from the medical community.
