A popular diet coke has been accused of having high levels of sugar, as well as having “lots of junk food”.
Diet cokel, which is made with coke and diet soda, is one of the most popular diet foods in the US.
It is available in some supermarkets and at popular restaurants such as Chipotle and Shake Shack.
But there have been some controversies over the past few years.
In July this year, a US judge ordered a recall of Diet Coke after he discovered that some bottles were laced with more than a dozen chemicals.
“It’s not something you can just put in a cup of coffee and enjoy,” said Mark Korte, a professor of health psychology at Columbia University.
“People are going to have a hard time consuming it.”
Diet cokes are made with sugar and sometimes contain large amounts of sugar.
A Coca-Cola advertisement for Diet Cokel claims: “No matter how much you’re eating, Diet Cokee is still your favorite beverage.”
But the label warns consumers that “this diet cokee is low in carbohydrates, so it’s high in fat and calories”.
It also says that “you can feel full but you don’t have to”.
The coke can contain up to 5 grams of sugar per 100 millilitres, while Diet Cokes can contain as much as 4 grams of sugars per 100ml.
“You can get a lot of sugar out of Diet Coke,” Kortes told Al Jazeera.
“They make it so easy.”
Some people claim that the ingredients in Diet Coks can cause them to get heart attacks, diabetes and even high blood pressure.
Some diet coks contain a mixture of carbohydrates and fats that are thought to contribute to obesity and heart disease.
“There are a lot more ingredients that are used in Diet Coke that are not really healthy,” said Kortel.
“And that’s why there are concerns over the sugar content of these things.”
A Diet Coley can be made with up to 4 grams (1.5 ounces) of sugar in the bottle.
