YES!! You will still get your vitamins, but not only that, if you are drinking Coke along with it, you're also getting calories with it! Cut down on pop (soda, soft drinks) because it's not good for your health at all. I stopped drinking any kind of pop for at least three months, strictly and seriously. I got rid of a nice layer of fat, and I only weigh about 145 lbs. and only have six percent body fat, so I am cut up and my six-packs are in even nicer shape. Yes, the vitamins and nutrients are absorbed in the small intestines. So, the acid from the Coke will have been mixed with the sugar and the protein to be absorbed after it leaves the stomach.
