Hi,

I'm new to the SBD; I'm on the third day of Phase I. I need my cup of tea in the morning. Is it okay to have caffeine?? Has anyone else had caffeine at all and done okay??

Cheers!

Most people still consume a cup of coffee or tea even in phase 1. I've always had my tea. I switch to decaffeinated after the first cup or two but I've never had a problem.

Before starting the diet I read the books and did my research and while there was a lot I was willing to give up and change about my eating, my morning latte was not one of them. I still think my espresso machine is one of my most favorite and the most frequently used gifts I have ever received.

Also, in the first few weeks when I craved sweets I would have a cup of tea (regular old Lipton) with enough Splenda to get me passed the craving and on to healthier food.

Have you caffiene and enjoy.

Default Thanx for the caffeine!

Thanks a lot!! I feel better now. I always have my steeped tea w/ milk in the morning. I used to have a couple throughout the day, but now I've limited it to one a day, and I have green tea for the rest of the day. But it's nice to hear about the lattes. I got an espresson machine for Christmas, and I hate to give it up. So I won't.

Cheers!
