    2... Drink plenty of water..

    Hi missme.

    I 'm follwing weightwatchers and all diet soft drinks are 0 points (free) so I would say its ok to have diet pepsi. Maybe not too much as you might end up with a sugar free side effect!

    I have just started these today!

    I went to the not very helpful doc, with no advice but handy with the Prescriptions, and so I need to sorta guess what I should be eating.

    I know what I should NOT be eating - everything I am used to doing the last however many years as its made me be 5 st over weight and Im very short so I look like a big apple (Not NYC though LOL!) :wink:

    I would suggest to drink as much water as possible but Im sure diet soda is ok, as the WW book says 0 pts.

    I wonder if it is still ok to drink the Nescafe Vanilla Latte sachets!! I love it, in the morning instead of boring coffee! (yes, Im one of THEM!)

    take care xx

    Vanna731 - I don't know about the Vanilla ones but I can tell you the Nescafe Cappuccino (Unsweetened) is 73 calories and 3.3 grams of fat....the Skinny Cappuccino is 51 calories and 0.7grams of fat.....unfortunately the Skinny ones don't seem to work the same as the fatter ones...they don't seem to mix well. I only use these when we picnic - and half a sachet makes a mug of coffee for me. No milk is needed. This for me is a treat. I imagine the Vanilla things are high in fat too....check it.

    thanks for that, quill-drill.

    It seems about same fat/cal as the normal one so I have that (however I am bad and add milk and a tiny 1/4 tsp sugar :oops: (which I will need to wean myself off of!, cereal, and a yogurt or fruit for breakfast. (Not at the same time, I tend to not get hungry till I've been up an hour or two!

    good luck ladies! smile
