Is there a way I can drink regular (non-diet) soft drinks and Full Throttle before or on Ketosis?

I refuse to give up that which wakes me up in the morning, I don't do coffee, too mainstream, I drink Mio in my 16 oz. cup of water with my Omeprazole, then afterwards if available, I drink my Mountain Dew flavors of White Out, Voltage and original, preferably cold with carbonation intact for the rest of the (day and afternoon), but go back to Mio-enhanced water at night or after the sun has set!

You need sub 30g-50g carbs to keto it up. Full throttle is ~58g of carbs (sugar!) before you even eat food for the day.

Ok, to answer your question, no, you can't have those drinks and come anywhere close to ketosis, nor be on the Paleo diet in any real sense. They have way too much sugar.

You say you don't need the sugar, but I suspect you do, and you won't really know what it is doing to you until you cut it out. If you need caffeine and coldness in the morning, brew strong tea or coffee at night and put it in the fridge and drink it cold and unsweetened in the morning.

When I went on the diet, I cut out all sugars, which really wasn't that hard, even though people say they simply could not survive without sugar. What was interesting was how my tastes changed. After a while I found that fatty foods taste sweet, and now put some heavy cream in my coffee. Sugary foods now taste uncomfortably sweet and feel like they coat my mouth and I don't even want them any more.

You just want reinforcement for your bad habits, no if you want to be paleo, you shouldn't drink any drinks like that. If you need to start your day with omeprazole, and caffeine maybe its time to re-evaulate your dietary choices. Its quite telling of a nutrition plan when your reliant on caffeine and restricted from consuming any sugar, the fuel for every cell in our body. Don't mask your symptoms by bypassing the problem, address it directly and embrace vitality.

Once again, and I'll clarify, I'm 29 years old and I don't get high from the sugar, it's the caffeine, the sugar and the coldness together that wakes me up!

And your answer is NOT the best one, it's 1. non-informative, 2. it's obnoxious and 3. you failed to answer the question!

you understand ketosis is all about avoiding carbs, while soda is essentially fructose in a can.
