    I just had a giant mug of coffee with half a vanilla shake in... I swear this is too good to be allowed!?? It means I could have 2 enormous mugs of coffee instead of 1 vanilla shake.. is this naughty or ok? xx

    i like it with half caramel shake in ... tastes like a caramel latte. That was my evening drink for weeks and weeks. Haven't had it since I discovered the joy of tetras in my coffee ... means I can have 3 (decaf) coffees a day from one tetra (could probably have more but then it wouldn't be as scrummy)

    Wow.. I know I've just started so it's all still a bit novel, but there's so much variety with this diet that aside from temptation when you see other food sometimes, it's really not that bad at all considering it's less than 500 calories a day. The only real problem is when you have to go to functions and stuff and want an alcoholic beverage! Aside from that, all good

    well I found half a vanilla shake to be really creamy and lovely and it was one of those huge bowl mugs as well so I'm sure it'll be fine for you, though I don't know the joys of a full one so you might not like it!

    caffinated coffe can increase water retention and some people have noticed it affects weight loss. In most cases this is likely to be due to water retention HOWEVER for people who are very insulin resistant it may affect ketosis.

    So, if you drink coffee and are not happy with your losses - at least try cutting it out or drinking decaf to see if weight loss improves

    if you drink it for a few days with half pack you will probably adjust to it and forget the other was nicer (? maybe? ... I would) ... that way you can have two scrummy ones a day instead of one :D
