Another problem is the unavailability of sugar free yoghurt and drinking yoghurt.  A friend who works in the sugar industry told me that Thai yoghurt producers were amongst their biggest customers.  Basically all yoghurt products with the exception of a few local specialty products and some imported brands have at least a couple of spoonfuls of sugar in them.

Perrier has lemon and lime flavored soda water.

It is expensive but no sugar or calories.

Generally, Soda water has no sugar.  Tonic water has sugar.

It will not kill you to squeeze a lemon, lime or orange in soda water and add 1/4 to 1/2 pack of equal to it.

Much better then diabetes full sugar sodas.

There is no such thing as totally sugar free natural yogurt.

The lactose in it creates sugar.

But, natural unsweetened yogurt has many good things in it which outweigh the low sugar content.

What was reported missing is Coke Zero aka Coke No Sugar.

My wife seems to have a pretty easy time in BKK finding cans of Coke Light, which I gather is no sugar and no calories. (Don't ask me what's in it. She drinks it, not me!)  Coke Light is the kind with the red can and silver top ring.

 

Carbonated Water, Colourant (Caramel), Acidulant (Phosphoric Acid), Non-nutritive Sweeteners (Aspartame, Acesulfame-K, Sucralose), Flavouring, Preservative (Sodium Benzoate), Trisodium Citrate and Caffeine. Coca-Cola Light contains 2kj per 330ml serving due to 100% reduction in sugars compared to regular Coca-Cola.

Coca-Cola Light

The body treats artificial sweeteners the same as sugar so just as bad for you. Drink water instead.

You need to know what you are buying with sugar free. It only meens actual sugar has not been added.

They have to use sweetener of some sort and some of that stuff they use is worse than actual sugar. Read the label contents and look them up on google. 

You need to buy a goid blender machine and Mae your own drinks from natural fruits. Or fing some natural fruit drinks in cartons etc. that state no sweeteners added.

i have been sugar free for 30+ years, do not drink Coca, or other black shit. And no machine drinks. I am 78 and my sugar readings are around 6 all the time. 

not after a meal at night I guess my sugar readings are similar to yours

but after a meal at night time (2hours after ) I go up to about 8

Soda water, even bottled water and a dash of freshly squeezed lemon is quite refreshing, yes contains a little sugar.

 

Those chemically concocted sodas seem to be not too good for ones health.

There is currently no evidence that carbonated or sparkling water is bad for you. It is not really that harmful for dental health and seems to have no effect on bone health. Interestingly, a carbonated drink may even enhance digestion by improving swallowing ability and reducing constipation.

Rather than buying sugar free soda, which always has artificial sweeteners, which may or may not be carcinogenic, but are most certainly unhealthy to consume, Oishi has one green tea, which is 100% green tea, with no sweeteners, or additives. It is quite good. Available in alot of supermarkets. 

I understand what you are saying but what if I hate tea

Pitcher of water, squeeze in half a lemon... and cut up some ginger to add ... great refreshing drink without the chemicals. Always keep on hand in the fridge.

 

From what I have read, the sugar free's are worse than the sugar for the body.
