It is best to have just one cup with caffeine and then either stop or switch to some decaf. If you have more than one cup with caffeine, then you must add one cup of water for each cup of coffee (or caffeinated tea). I would rather not have to add water!!

Regarding packets you mix:
- it is highly likely your taste will start changing soon as you get away from old foods and eat more "cleanly". You will probably end up liking more of them than you think!
- be sure to use cold cold water and let them sit to thicken a bit. If you put in the freezer briefly, you get a nice "frosty"
- many people blend the shakes with a cup of spinach... Apparently you don't really taste it but it makes the shake thicker and richer. (Counts against your two lunch cups of veg... And is a bonus if you struggle to get all yours in. I LOVE my veggies so never want to add to a shake, but many do.)
- you can use those pudding/shake packets to make waffles then top with WF syrup (even people who don't care for their salad dressings usually LOVE their syrups!)
