    I'm thinking of getting some water flavours. Is it worth it?? Are they nice?

    Whats the vegetable one like? Is it like clear runny soup?

    Oh yeh.... when are you allowed to start drinking them? I'm on day 7.

    I tried the vegetable one on my 1st visit to CDC and it was quite nice and yes just like a soup flavoured water (tried it hot), bit like if you have an ox drink. Also tried the berry one in cold water which is nice. Will defo get both when I am allowed - week two I think.

    We got lemon and apple. Have only tried the lemon so far but it was so good it made me go overboard with the water consumption today! Really worth it!

    My CDC said I can have them and I'm on day 1 so I would expect they are fine for any stage!

    I was told by my CDC that you can't have them until week two until Ketosis is really established otherwise it may take longer to get into ketosis.

    Water flavourings should not be introduced until week 3 then only 1 teaspoon per day.

    Other countries have other rules and regs.

    Thanks Linda, in your experience if your ok with just drinking plain water should you just do without the flavorings?

    Okay, thank you for letting me know, I can't really tell how it would stop ketosis since they contain essentially nothing but I wouldn't want to hurt the method so I'll stop it right now. I've only had 2 of them anyhow.

    My CDC said it was fine from day 1 - and I mentioned that I'd read on here about it stopping you getting into ketosis and she has assured me she called CD the next day and they said that no, it was fine to have from day 1 and 1 teaspoon per 1 litre, nothing about 1 teaspoon a day - so it seems we're all getting mixed information somewhere. x

    We only have orange or berry here, Miss Ama lives in Sweden.

    The flavours are lovely though aren't they, especially made with hot water in this chilly weather!

    Should have never read this thread as it appears everyone is right, I am then 10 days away from being able to have flavours and they were just divine and am now envious LOL

    Don't be jealous that we have lemon here we have NO porridge, NO tomato, leek or curry soups, NO butterscotch, berries and orange shakes and what's worst, no Cambridge Fiber!!!
