    Does anyone have a list of drinks we can have instead of water that won't take us out of ketosis??

    I think Coke Zero is ok and also the Tesco flavoured waters as they don't contain citric acid.

    Is peppermint tea ok? Green tea?

    Thanks!

    Any leaf tea - but not fruit teas, so peppermint is fine. Also Dr Pepper Zero mmmmmmm, I limit to one glass a day. The Tesco hi juice squash does have fruit sugar in tho, therefore crabs, so I only have one glass a day too.

    I bought some really nice tasting Twinings Rose Tea in the supermarket, but am now worried that it is forbidden because it is a "flower tea". Is rooibos/redbush tea allowed?

    As far as Im aware flower teas would be ok. Id think they are closer to leaf tea than fruit tea.

    I know flower teas weren't allowed on LighterLife, as I couldn't have chamomile tea for that reason, maybe check it out first?

    Dr Pepper Zero is also okay. As is Coke Zero which was mentioned earlier.

    Pepsi Zero is not allowed as it contains citric acid.

    Thanks for advice, coke zero is keeping me sane. Does anyone know though if you can count toasted your water intake though? Same with tea and coffee can these be used towards it too. At moment I'm doing water plus the rest

    I wouldnt have thought Coke zero could be counted towards it but the tea and coffee can I believe.

    LLC used to say that tea and coffee (anything with caffiene, so coke too) are diuretics so shouldn't be counted towards water intake as it makes you pee more than you drink. Decaff tea/coffee can be counted tho. I don't suppose a few cups would make much difference, but if you were drinking large amounts of normal tea and coffee you would theoretically be dehydrating yourself anyway.

    I am counting all liquids including Dr Pepper zero and tea towards my total. That could be slowing down my weight loss. I've just checked the literature and it says drink 2-3 litres still or sparkling water and that tea and coffee can be counted towards your target, but it doesn't mention other drinks.

    Also what boullion are you using? Is it just something like the knorr stock cubes or something else which is more tasty. I am really hungry with 3 Exante packs a day and need something else like boullion.

    BTW, Dr Pepper zero (my personal favourite) is currently half price at Tesco

    I think the concern with flower teas such as chamomile is they often have added ingredients, such as citrus peel, which could throw you out of ketosis
