So are you allowed coffee milk and sugar? Lol I can't do without that

Is there a reason for peppermint tea? X

Black coffee...but thats what I drink. You're allowed sweetener and cream but no milk for first 2 weeks during induction stage.

On 2nd pint of plain water. Waiting for 'induction flu' to kick in I've got abit of a headache and a few aches but it'll get worse than this

Feel better already in a way. Its like a detox to me xx

Good luck Hun! I always want to try Atkins, but I dunno if I could hack it it's the coffee thing, I need milk at least! Could you have dairy alternatives?

Think there is something...possibly unsweetened soya. Once you get to day 4-5 its really easy and no cravings for nothing. I found it great for pmt. It was great for the mood plus no weight changes at totm

Lunch was tuna salad today x

Another pint of squash too x

I'm really considering it now! I'm a nightmare, one minute I'm adamant I'm staying in maintain and the next I'm considering diets!
