    Hi Haley. i'm not sure about this one as vinegar contains citric acid which I beleive is a no-no. However, I see that vinegar is included in the condiments list. I too would like to know about balsamic vinegar as it offers great flavouring in small amounts. I'm currently using a balasmic based light options dressing on my veg at mo but keeping it limited to the 3 x teaspoons daily that the "My Journey" book.

    Hi Haley,

    I've only just started Lite and funnily enough I fancied a bit of balsamic vinagar to accompany 2 tspns of olive oil to make a nice salad dressing... perfect for summer!!
    I contacted my counsellor who advised balsamic is fine! It's included in the vinegar condiments.

    Hope this helps!

    I think you can have a tablespoon or two of it - obviously not too much, but a little is fine. :) I had some on my salads, didn't affect teh weight loss for me! ;)
    Good luck!
