hey Katie welcome to the LT family!!! I used to take milk in my tea and coffee and I must admit I still miss it but you do get used to the taste of it and you actually learn to like the taste of the tea and the coffee without masking it with milk!

Welcome hun! 11 weeks is enough time to get you very close to that goal and possibly even achieve it! I have seen people do it! Just keep at it. First week is hard but you have to keep thinking of the big picture. Second week on it gets soooo much easier!

You'll be in that bikini for the hols yet!

Katie,

This is my third time on this diet, on the first occasion I gave up because I could not manage to drink the tea or coffee without milk. I don't take sweetners in my coffee and tea. On the second occassion I attempted the diet sticking to it rigidly, but put a tiny amount of skimmed milk in my tea and coffee. I knew the worse it could do would be to take me out of ketosis and make me hungry, but I had to try it. Thankfully it did neither and I did manage to loose weight. I had to come off the diet, after loosing 1 and a half stone, as we had a family tragedy. I am back on the diet again, and this time determined to see it through to the end, and get to my target weight and keep it off, but again I just could not do this diet without a small touch of skimmed milk in my tea and coffee, it is the only thing I look forward to in my day, as unlike most other people I do not like the shakes and just get them down as quick as possible, but have a relaxing tea or coffee afterwards, my treat after the shakes. I am still in ketosis, not hungry (that was after the first 3 days), still drink 3 litres of water, and my required shakes, and I have average weight losses.
I do agree with everyone that you should not cheat on this diet, and I do not pick or cheat in any other way, but know I could not do this diet without the tiniest drop of skimmed milk in my tea and coffee. Try your best and see if you can manage your tea and coffee without any milk, if not try the tiniest drop of skimmed milk, but be aware that everyone reacts differently, so you would need to monitor yourself.

Welcome Katie,

I'm in my 8th week and used to be an avid tea and diet coke drinker. I tried black tea but hated it!!! I do like black coffee and often have one in the evening when I feel peckish. It does help!

This diet is great. It works best if you don't cheat at all and drink plenty of water. I started drinking just 2 litres a day but have found it easy to increase that as long as you spread it out during the day and don't try to drink it all in the evening. So far today I've had 4 litres and 2 cups of coffee and I'm planning to drink another 1/2 - 1 litre tonight!

The worse thing is the constant dashes to the loo!!! My bladder always seems full!!! Lol!!!

If you find yourself weakening then pop on here as there'll always be someone around to gee you up.

Good luck.

Hi
Yes coffee without milk is rank...but dont use milk as it has carbs in it esp skimmed and semi skimmed!!! you can use your vanilla shakes with coffee to make a latte ...i am a complete caffine addict and use i full bag of LT a day as coffee whitener... wck you coffee in a blender add on spoon ful of van LT and whizz ....lush!! Hope this helps xxx
Good luck on your first week

Thanks for all the replies think i will try the vanilla pack in coffees although i have just had a black coffee with a sweetner and it was not too bad at all. Can mange without tea for now, can we have herbal tea I cant remember a quite like peppermint. Off to a wedding reception tonight so hoping that this will distract me from the hunger. will try and leave off having shakes till as late as possible. Hope you all have a nice day x
