Discussions that mention potassium

Weight Loss board

I was wondering if acesulfame potassium is bad on the Atkin's diet? Like, can I still drink it with my water. I pour the powder packets into my drinks and I drink it that way. I've only been on this diet for 3 days, but I don't want to ruin it from the start, I want to know all of the facts and everything before I really get into it. So, acesulfame potassium is like Splenda, would I be able to drink like 3 glasses of this stuff in water? I mean, it's just little packets like those Crystal Light on the go stuff, but it's a different brand and has 0 carbs, 0 calories, and 0 sodium. I mean like I said, I'm on the Atkins diet and it has 0 carbs....so please help!!!
