Is Diet Coke a clear liquid?
Keeping this in view, can you drink Diet Coke the day before a colonoscopy?
One Day Prior To Your Exam Restrict your diet to CLEAR LIQUIDS ONLY. CLEAR LIQUIDS INCLUDE: water, chicken/beef/vegetable broth, flavored waters, apple juice, Jell-O, Kool-Aid, coffee, tea, Sprite, Gatorade, PowerAde, Mountain Dew, Coke/Pepsi, Rootbeer, and Slurpee's.
Subsequently, question is, what is considered a clear liquid diet? A clear liquid diet is pretty much exactly what it sounds like: a diet consisting of exclusively clear liquids. These include water, broth, some juices without pulp, and plain gelatin. Any foods that are considered liquid or partly liquid at room temperature are allowed. You can't eat solid foods on this diet.
In this regard, is Coke considered a clear fluid?
When a clear liquid is in a container such as a bowl or glass, the container is visible through the substance. Although not “clear”, black coffee/tea and sodas like Coke are ok on a clear liquid diet. Clear liquids and foods (gelatin) may be colored so long as you are able to see through them.
What can I have on a clear liquid diet for a colonoscopy?
The day before the colonoscopy procedure — Don't eat solid foods. Instead, consume only clear liquids like clear broth or bouillon, black coffee or tea, clear juice (apple, white grape), clear soft drinks or sports drinks, Jell-O, popsicles, etc. Don't eat or drink anything two hours before the procedure.
