    HI Guys,

    I am on day 6 of SS, and I think I'm doing OK, although still feel hungry.:(

    I’m aware of the general rules around what you can and cannot drink, i.e. black tea (leaf tea), and coffee, obviously water, no cordials etc, but I do not drink tea or coffee.:sigh:

    I do however drink herb tea (which I know must not be fruit or flower based) mainly peppermint and fennel, and what you might call a coffee substitute called "Caro" made my Nestle, or "Barleycup", they; look like, are made like, and taste a bit like coffee but are a blend of Barley, Malted Barley, Chicory and Rye.

    My question though is can I drink it on CD? I haven’t so far but miss it. :(

    Any advice would be appreciated. :D

    Peppermint tea is a leaf tea so you can have that. Didn't think you were allowed fennel as it is made from seeds is it not?

    The berry water flavouring with hot water is lovely too.
