    I have been told by someone who done ss a few years back that we are allowed this drink after week two? can any of the cdc's confirm this as i am having alot of trouble drinking plain water and my cdc doesn't have any until next week?

    Thanks

    No to the perfectly clear I'm afraid :(

    You can have teas and coffees etc as part of your intake, but good to have some water too.

    Have you tried different leaf teas?

    Don't forget the cambridge water flavourings (from week 3). They're nice, especially with sparkling water :)

    I used to mix a pepper mint teabag and a greentea teabag in a big mug and put in a couple of sweetner tablets which made a really nice sweetish hot drink

    Any sparkling water is fine, as long as we're talking plain sparkling water... no additives, no colours or flavours. Just water with bubbles!

    Peppermint tea with a table sweetner is very nice hot or cold.

    Try heating up a load of mint tea, putting in a couple of sweetners and then leaving to cool.. serve in a glass with ice.. tis lik a mint minty fresh drink.. especially for the summer months.. i know people who used to make pitchers (sp) of it..

    Red bush tea is really good to and just as hydrating as water. - your water count does not include coffee as it's got caffine in it which dehydrates you.

    Offical guideline says you can have coffee as part of your water.. I think you would be bouncing off the ceiling though if you had 3 litres of coffee.. lol!
    although i know what you mean..

    Gosh yes you are right - just looked it up in my book.

    My CDC and the one I had a few years back said I couldn't include it.

    I bought some decaf cos I drink so much anyhow. What a bonus that means I must be upping my calorie free liquid by a litre a day I should think ha ha

    Ha ha Kitteh no he hates mint anything if i brush my teeth on a morning he wont kiss me goodbye lol!

    When i was on weight watchers i used to buy stuff that he didnt like but he would eat it anyway cos he couldn't be bothered to make anything himself!

    Obviously with this he doesnt have a choice although he did try a little nibble of the chocolate bar!

    I tried redbush tea and i hate it its really wierd tasting maybe i need to give it another try since i bought 40 bags!!
