    Hi Everyone,

    I am personally struggling to drink enough water for this diet, and drinking 8 cups of coffee to get enough fluid is keeping me awake, i'm wondering if i have found something that can help...

    Volvic have brought out a sugar free flavoured water in strawberrie and lemon and lime. The nutritional label says that in 250ml it contains 7 cals 0.2g sugar. For the carbs it say Trace...

    Can i/we drink this without coming out fo Ketosis?!

    Oh lord..someone say YES!!

    Rozzy :D

    I am struggling too, I had a cup of black coffee last night, but it tasted awful....so I've just in the process of trying it with a teaspoon of sweetener to try and see if I get that down. I would only do one or two cups a day just to keep me awake....I'm feeling tierd all the time.

    I've just checked my fav drink...diet Vimto...nearly cried when I saw the 3rd ingredient is citric acid!!! Oh well just had a cup of coffee but with the sweeteners....not too bad although I had to do it with 2 teaspoons thou...but like I said before it would of be 2 cups a day just to keep the tiredness at bay.

    Volvic sugar free does contain citric acid...i was allowed it in moderation on a different type of ketosis diet before....but you would not be able to drink it on Exante or any other vlcd that i can think of.

    What about trying to drink decaff for the majority of your coffee drinks.

    Do you chill your water? Perhaps try carbonated too? Personally I think that there is nothing worse than lukewarm still water :eek:

    I'm struggling with plain water too. I've bought Perfectly Clear, kiwi and strawberry flavour. It contains malic acid, and according to some posts here is allowed on some diets. I dilute it with tap water, and I find it quite good. It's too sweet for me undiluted. My biggest craving is for a glass or two of dry white wine!! Struggling with that one - is there anyone else!!

    There was a lady on Lipotrim that could only drink the Strawberry Volvic and she had amazing losses each week - but then she drank that water all the time before the diet anyways - dont know if it was just that her body was used to it :) hth
