Does it contain citric acid? cuz if it does think it prevents you from getting in ketosis?
Not 100% sure but 99.9%.
No what you mean about the water tho I'm the same. You can get a water flavoring for the water thats safe to have think I'm gonna look into that, as I hate hate hate plain water.

Good luck.

yea its got citric acid in it :( guess you could still drink it, its better than nothing.
I tend to steer clear of things with citric acid in it there's a thread on her somewhere with a list of stuff that is free from citric acid, i'll have a look for the link.

Citric acid can stop or kick some people out of ketosis. Some people find it doesn't affect them at all. You might be lucky but at the same time you might not.

Have you thought about peppermint tea? I drink lots of that and it's safe to drink on this diet.
Yep that water is a definite no-no.

You can have tescos still strawberry water though. I dont know if that tastes the same as the volvic one or not but it's worth a try if you dont like plain water.

Iv got some ketostix so i might see what they say but get some tesco water in too.


Doing it exante style :)

The citric acid only affects some people, and although it may make ketosis harder, you would still be losing weight, as it's the calorie count that matters for the weight loss. However, most people have the benefit, if they get into ketosis that the hunger cravings are much less.
But drinking water is definitely better than not drinking any; but may well be worth investigating some of the other vlcd water flavourings that you can get, or some of the non citric acid ones.

When I was on LT in 2009 - there was a lady over there that only ever drank Strawberry Volvic and she had massive losses.

You could try a week of drinking Strawberry Volvic and a week on something else and see if there is a difference.
