    black tea, black coffee, green tea, water, spring water, herbal (not fruity) teas, no squash, and definitely no orange juice! (it will have a fructose content).

    Some of the other VLCD suppliers do compatible flavourings for water - I'm looking into investing in some.

    IF you're desperate, the following are just about compatible with ketosis, anecdotally:- Coke Zero (although not diet coke), Perfectly Clear (only the strawberry and kiwi flavour) and Dr Pepper Zero, allegedly. Basically, diet fizzy pop without citric acid in. (Coke zero has phosphoric acid).

    Although fizzy pop on a practically permanently empty stomach is not entirely recommended...

    So did I originally. What does that say about us? *ahem*

    However far be it from me to suggest that vodka is entirely carb-free...

    Apparently so. Just no added ingredients, aside from the water. :)

    Unfortunately, if you did succumb, you would find yourself to be a *very* cheap date.

    So actually, for the sake of your good standing and reputation (if, unlike me, you have one), it's probably best staying away from the booze at least in the short term. lol

    But seriously, tell your friend it's actually not a good idea at all when not having much in the way of solids...

    That's pretty scary
    oh well the large bottle of baileys, vodka and 3 bottles of wine will have to stay secreted away(well, I have hidden them from view in a cardboard wine carrier under the table!)

    That is very interesting - never knew that and I have been on LT for months - I could have had other flavours than just plain water lol. I used to be a big Diet Coke fan and its interesting to know that Exante "allows" other types of drinks. Of course would not drink them in the quantities I used to but its nice to that there can be an occasional change of flavour and texture.

    Well, I wouldn't go as far as 'allows' (it doesn't, but I'm a grown-up and make my own decisions!), but that is the limited list of drinks gleaned from other areas of the site that, anecdotally, don't interfere with a VLCD, whether it's exante or not.

    Info shared in good faith, and with no promises :)
