Hello,i am going to start my diet on the monday and i was wondering apart from tea,coffee and water what else can i drink on induction phase. The weather is hot in fact it is too hot i don't even feel like drinking tea and coffee and just drinking water is going to be a bit boring. My atkins book says i can drink;
essence flavored seltzer(must say no calories)
decaff. coffee or tea
herba tea(no barley,dates,figs,sugar)
clear broth/bouillon(not all brands)
cream(heavy or light);note carb. content
diet soda(read label)iced tea with artifical sweetener)
natural and arifical orange soda(contains some carb.)
lemon or lime juice(each contein 2.8 gr. carb. per ounce)
when i read the topics here i notice that you mention about drinking fizzy drinks such as diet coke and diet dr. pepper(if i am not wrong)
They also sell flavored water here either still or sparkling which contain a small amount of carb. which is not too bad.As long as the label says it includes this much carb. will it be ok to consume them?(lets say 2 gr. carb per 250 ml. of bottle)
My dr. atkins easy carb. gram counter book says a no no for diet fizzy drinks because they contein carb. but when i check the labels here they claim to be 0 carb. , it is so confusing.
thanks in advance for the answers.
