and sports soft drinks
to 2004 edition from Elaine:
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
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
DRINKS SWEETENED WITH ANY OTHER SWEETENER
- some can aggravate
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.
