    Ok, i've read/been told you can't count coffee tea and coke zero as liquid because they contain caffeine but does that mean other caffeine free leaf teas like chamomile do count - only i've been drinking chamomile and peppermint tea instead so 5-10 mugs (4-5 pints approx) a day plus 2 litres or so of water plus i add extra water to my shakes and i can't see how people possibly drink more. I hate plain water so bought some of the stuff to flavour it but still struggling to drink more :sigh:
    Surely the tea must count ... pleeze :confused:Advice welcome - and if it doesn't count then i am severely not taking in enough water :tear_drop::tear_drop:

    I am sure it says in the yellow book you get that your drinks can either be still or spaekling water and black tea or coffee

    I'm sure someone will be along with better advise soon

    You can't have chamomile as it's made from flowers-it's only leaf teas that are allowed.I'm not sure if herbal teas count as fluid intake or not.I would think they don't as black tea and coffee don't count either, only still or sparkling water.

    Ideally your liquid should be water, however, you can allow tea and coffee in this but water is best.

    I do not advocate any of the diet drinks as from experience I have found many clients deviate from the diet when these are introduced.

    The maximum recommended is 1 pint per day after two weeks, it does come with a warning though that it can make you hungry.

    Camomile tea is definitely a no no as its from flowers, most leaf teas are okay providing they are pure and no flavourings have been added.

    Still or sparkling water is okay.

    CD waterflavourings can be introduced in the third week.

    Page 3 of your SS booklet lists all of this information.
