Coffee is allowed but it doesn't count towards water unless it is decaf. Creamers are permitted. 35 calories worth is a limited extra.

Coffee is allowed. I read somewhere you can add it to your coffee flavored protein drink for a little added flavor/change? I'm trying that this morning.
It's been a year or so since I was on the NS Advance program and I think it was counted towards your water intake. (maybe I'm wrong, memory going with age! LOL) But I'm not sure on the Success Program. If I'm reading cgbinky's post right, the new program may not count caffeinated drinks?? Caffeine can have a diuretic effect so maybe that's why those drinks don't count toward your water intake????
That is correct Calvin. All drinks that contain caffeine do not count towards your water because of the diuretic effects.

i have wondered this same thing. I'm on my first week(newbie!). I think I understand what is allowed for creamers.. up to 35 cal. I just purchased a Keurig a couple weeks ago. I really love flavored coffees, and there are flavored K-cups that I'd like to get but haven't yet till I know what is allowed. The coffees that come already flavored, I assume would be the same, up to 35 cal.?
