    Right .....Im going to have to lay off the coke ;) hahah, diet coke that is!
    Im only having about a litre of water a day, but 2 or3 cans of diet coke and a few coffees or teas.

    Things have slowed right down. On wednesday I was 10st bang on, yesterday I was 9.13.8 and today Im 9.13.6, so its going very slowly this week. I know I shouldnt be looking every day, and Im going to put the scales away until Wednesday (WI day)

    I think its because Im not drinking as much water as I should, and Im drinking lots of coke/caffiene.

    What do you think?

    When I was on dietchef, I drank one cup of coffee a day and a couple of cans of diet coke. My weight slowed down a bit during the third week so I thought I would experiment by cutting out the coffee and the diet coke too, and I started losing quicker again!

    I def think diet coke and coffee can effect the rate of your weight loss.

    Well my weight loss has been slow the last 9 days (before the V&T!) and I don't drink anything other than black decaf tea and plain water so I can't blame the coffee / pop on mine slowing down.

    Right ....thanks all! It has now gone :( I LOVE coke and may have a slight addiction! I will stick to a coffee on a morning and tea on a night, water all other times.

    I do like water though, so will manage to get a few litres a day. I remember the VLCD motto of 'the more you drink, the more you shrink' hahahah!!
