Is it ok to drink herbal tea while on phase 1? I was thinking of trying this one.

Hi & welcome.  Yes, you can have any type of tea on Phase 1.  You can add any artificial sweetener of your choice.  Enjoy!

Thank you so much for answering my question. I was on the south beach diet a few yrs ago but after my son was born I've been on and off and I'm finally "really" starting back. I used to come here all the time and find all the answers to my questions but it seems like things have changed I'm glad to see that if I have any questions and can't find the answer myself there are still people around to ask. Cathy, there used to be a chart with the daily meal plan for each phase, do you know where I can find it?

I'm so glad to see you've come back.  Unfortunately, these message boards had a total revamping and it seems after 5 months they still can't get the glitches out of the system and most of our information archives have vanished.  I will see if I can dig up those lists for you.  I know the original book is widely available in public libraries.  You might want to check it out and refresh your memory.

Hey Cathy. I have a question regarding this topic. In Phase one fruits are not allowed and thus I was wondering whether teas with fruits e.g. apple tea are okay during this phase?
