That is how I was told to do it by my doctor once. It seems like a lot of water. My coach says 64oz perday, but I drink a lot more than that to make sure all everything is flushed out each day.

Does your coach allow any Crystal Light - most of which contain aspartame and cause insulin spikes - or the kind that contain sucralose, which don't cause the spikes? Just curious because I understood that the insulin spikes can throw you out of ketosis. I haven't had any aspartame since starting IP and am just wondering.

My coach allows one packet a day so I split it up between all of my water to give it some kind of flavor. It hasn't thrown me out of ketosis and I've been doing it for about 2 weeks.

My coach told me that I could have crystal light as long as it was 0 carbs, 0 fat and 0 sugar. I have had it since I started the program. I am losing and feel great. As long as I keep losing and feel good, I think I will keep drinking it. It does have 5 calories per serving.

I stay away from caf because I have a hard time getting my water in anyway, so I don't want to have to drink more just because I've had caffeine! During the winter, I'll be able to drink lots of hot tea, and there are a variety of flavors to look for.
