    Are you able to drink herbal teas on Exante? I read a post over on another forum & they said no as it would take you out of Ketosis. However another person said it was ok to have peppermint or green tea. Just wondered what you all drink aswell as your water. I like a cup of boiling water in the morning with a slice of lemon but would that also knock you out of Ketosis?

    You can have leaf teas. You should avoid fruit ones as the citric acid could knock you out of ketosis. Lemon could knock you out also.

    Green and peppermint tea are fine. So is nettle tea. Or black tea or coffee.

    Thanks Sarah P. I was hoping to start tmrw but my packs didn't arrive today despite staying in all day incase I needed to sign for them. I had an email from Jackie at Exante ystdy and she said they would be with me today so I'm hoping they will arrive tmrw morning so I can start.

    That's unusual that they didn't arrive on the next day delivery. I am sure that they will be there with you tomorrow. Let me know how you get on with them. :D

    I just hope they arrive today as I'm all geared up to start today only I forgot we are going to friends on Fri night for a bite to eat & a drink but I'm just going to have a quiet word with her today & tell her my plans & OH can have a drink & I'll drive. I'll certainly let you know how I'm doing over the coming days & weeks. Off to bed now for a couple of hours after nightshift.
