    Hi

    I'm a newbie and just wanted to say hello!:wave_cry:

    I've been an avid reader of all of your inspirational posts for a fair while now and have decided to take the plunge myself.

    I started Exante TS on Monday and on day 4 today. Gosh the first few days aren't easy are they?! Hopefully I'll be in ketosis soon!

    I'm having 3 shakes a day, as much water as I can get down my neck but I'm also drinking Coke Zero and having splashes of skimmed milk in my tea/coffee as I just cannot drink it black. Do you think this will slow my weight loss down at all? Is anyone else doing this? I have a fair bit to lose and this will make it a million times more easier to stick to 100% longterm (well with Coke Zero and splashes of skimmed milk!! lol)

    Jo :) x

    Hi Joey

    Nice to see you. I am on Day 3 so a little behind you. I would like to know the answers to your questions too.

    I am coping on black coffee by a splash of skimmed milk would make a huge difference!

    I cant do Coke zero as I get a bad reaction to Aspartame. I would love to find something fizzy without the citric acid and aspartame!

    Good Luck on your journey. I am focussing on day by day right now!

    milk wont harm losses but if you are v sensitive to carbs it might kick you out of keto... most people do it and are fine as long as you aren't drinking a huge number of cups.

    Hi Jo and welcome :D. Well done on getting to day 4 on TS. I am not really a tea/coffee drinker, although I always seem to really crave it when I am dieting :confused: and I hate it without milk... so let's see if I crave it while doing exante. If you had a vanilla shake I wonder if adding a bit of it (once mixed up) to a cup of tea coffee would make it taste better than just black... hmm, maybe I'll give it a try.
