    I know you can drink de-caf coffee on atkins, but if you drink normal coffee could it affect your weigh loss or is it purely to stop carb cravings?

    I have unknowingly been drinking normal coffee at work (and quite a bit of it) :eek:

    Is coffee in general limited too?

    I can only comment on charles clarkes high protein diet, where he says to only drink de-caf (tea/coffee) as caffine stimulates insulin production which i suppose could throw you out of ketosis?

    I drink black de-caf with sweetner, occasionally with cream if I'm out and if they froth up the cream for you, its almost like a dessert! Ah the small things :)

    I have been drinking it since day one apparently. I haven't had any cravings so and stayed in ketosis throughout. Must just affect people differently.

    Thank you all for the info :)
