    Sorry another question from me.

    But have seen that people say they add coffee and that they drink tea (can you drink it with milk?)
    I know you can have coke zero every now n again. But what else? xx

    FAQ's


    Leaf teas can make a refreshing change, for example...green tea, peppermint or nettle but herbal teas made with flowers or fruits like chamomile or lemon should be avoided as these can contain hidden sugars.

    Hiya,
    I add a bit of light soya milk to my tea/coffee without any real probs and I know some people add skimmed milk to theirs.

    Bouillion (sp?) veg stock(I use the marigold brand) is a life saver between packs especially in the cold- u just add half a tsp or a tsp to a mug of boiling water.....mmmmm

    good luck with it

    You can have tea and coffee. You're meant to have it black but I add a dash of skimmed milk

    You can have coke zero and any drinks that don't have citric acid. The only one I know of is Asdas own diet coke

    I tend to have lemon green tea at work or I use a HEA of milk to have tea/coffee.
    If you dont want to use HEA sw say its 0.5 syns per dash of milk.

    I also like syn free squash such as Robinson's no added sugar squash and also Ribena really light, no added sugar.

    If im having alot of scan bran I make sure I drink plenty of water too.
    And occasionally I have fizzy drinks such as Diet Coke or Lilt Zero which I love :)

    Have you tried scan bran which sw sell and you can also buy it from Holland and Barrett too.
    That certainly helps get the bowels moving lol! Or sometimes I have Senakot tablets. xxx

    I think the key to avoiding constipation is to keep your water intake up by drinking little and often. I find this easiest by always having a litre bottle of water with me and just taking sips throughout the day and refilling it every time I've emptied it.
    Good luck (and you never know some people get the opposite problem...) hopefully you'll be happily in the middle and take to it easily xx
