    Hi , I really struggle to drink plain water so use the orange flavouring and manage to get 1 tsp to flavour 2 litres .. but I know they dont recommend more than 1 tsp a day so struggling to drink more .

    I have just looked on the tub and each tsp is only 0.1 g of carbs and 10 calories .. so why are you only allowed 1 a day .. surely an extra 0.1 g carb is not going to throw you out of ketosis ??? anyone shed any light on this ??

    I would be able to drink 4 litres no prob if I could use 2 tsp !!

    Could you try and use only half a teaspoon? or three quaters to stretch the flavouring to make at least an additonal litre of water??
    My other question if it is due to sweetner is I always add a sweetner to black coffee, if i drank more than 2 cups would that mean i also run the risk of knocking myself out of ketosis?
    Good luck

    I dont think there is a limit to the sweeters for coffee so long as they are the tablet form and not the granulated stuff

    I know I shouldn't but I have 2 teaspoons and it hasn't affected my losses (although I know it does for some people). I just couldn't drink all my water without it.

    Just a thought - but why are you trying to drink 4 litres of water? Cos you don't need to, you know. :) 3 litres is plenty. In fact, 2.25 litres is all you need to get down you (in addition of course to the water in your shakes and the glass of water required if you have a bar or a tetra).

    So why not just enjoy the tsp of water flavouring in 2.25 litres (I think it probably wouldn't hurt if you used a smidge over a teaspoon just so it tasted okay)?

    Fair enough. I wondered if that was the reason - after I posted, doh. :)

    I definitely hear what you're saying about trying to avoid the use of too many laxatives. Mind you, it doesn't seem to matter how much water I drink - the constipation issue remains, *sigh*.
