    Hi All,

    I started Atkins last Friday (25th), I have managed to give up milk and drink black decaffinated tea. I have rather a large cup that hold approx 1pint of tea, I drink 5 of these a day do I have to drink my 4pints of water aswell?

    I will start a diary (in the diary section)and post daily/day after please look tomorrow and tell me if all is OK. Thanks

    Max:confused:

    there are mixed thoughts on this, some say you need to drink the water as well, some say the tea etc counts towards daily total.

    anyhoo....welcome to atkins, and the forum, and wishing you success!

    Caffeine stalls some people so the Atkins experts suggest you give tea/coffee a miss for two weeks and let it flush out of your system.

    If it's decaf tea I'd count that into my fluid intake, no reason not to. :D
