it is part of the plan.
That is the simple answer.
You can have caffeinated, you're just supposed to have an extra cup of water for each cup of coffee.
Coffee is dehydrating. Ketogenic diets are dehydrating.
I do the extra for both caff or decaf. But if I wanna sit around on a winter Saturday morning and have 3 cups of coffee, I will. I just counter it with water for each cup.
Most days I'm down to 1 c and I'm working toward black.
