    Hi all,
    I'm thinking of returning to CD as it has by far the most effective weight loss.
    But i have some issues with the plan. I drink quite a lot of fluid a day, usually diet lemonade and cranberry juice (sugar free- it has only 25 cals a carton). On 810 could you get away with drinking the cranberry juice with soda water as I can not cope with plain water and didn't like the water flavourings.
    Per glass of juice undiluted it contains only 0.7g of carbs. I also walk quite a lot evry day and want to start running. Any thoughts or advice needed. I know that if i could drink this i would be much more successful with sticking to the packs and small protein meal.
    I have 60 pounds to lose and want to give it my best shot.

    I found the CD powders nasty and even though my CDC says I shouldn't have squash and diet coke I still do and it hasn't effected my weigh loss. I think allowing yourself these things make u carry on for longer rather then getting fed up when ur so strict then binging!

    Up to u though.. X

    Thanks i was hoping someone would say that. The drinks are more of an obstacle for me than the food. I'm always thirsty so i'm going to give it a go and see how i get on.
    I won't be drink a carton a day and will just splash a bit in to help with the water.
    So here goes then, starting tomorrow i'll be back again.

    I haven't got the book to hand - but I'm pretty sure that it actually says that you can have low calorie squash in moderation on the 810 plan. So I reckon you'd be fine. Ketosis is a bit of a hit and miss thing on 810 anyway, so it's not as though citric acid will be the problem it might be on a lower plan.

    :)
