    Hi, i'm on exante, and have always struggled with the water intake. i usually struggle to get to 2.5 ltrs bad i know, as you are supposed to have more like 3ltrs i think. and to be honest, mostly its more like 2 ltrs

    From what i read on all VLCD's, you should have between 2 - 4 ltrs of water, no more as it is dangerous for your body. and also space it out through the day. also, if you don't like tea and coffee, what about mugs of bouillon? this is nice, as it's hot, and very tasty. also you can have ribena plus sugar free squash, which is also nice hot. I wish i was more like u all, as i have trouble drinking 2.5ltrs

    I always think I am drinking lots, however when I measured it once it was only about 2 litres. Since then I have managed to boost up my intake to 3 litres, but a large chunk of that is coffee.

    I'm on day 6 of now - I found the water consumption really hard on the first day, I am NOT a water drinker! But I found myself being so thirsty that I was drinking constantly at my desk at work. I had bought a one litre bottle of water which is now my best friend, I take it to work with me, home with me, to bed with me ha! I think I've been averaging at 4 litres of plain water a day plus a cup of green tea and one or two cups of coffee. Needless to say I am constantly peeing.

    When I'm on a VLCD (S&S) I tried so hard to get the water down but wasn't always successful. At the most I would drink 2L a day roughly. Some people say 'the more you drink the more you shrink' but I never noticed any difference in my losses if I did or didn't drink all my water.

    I'm sure I read on the S&S website that you should drink no more than 3.5L a day
    ETA: just found it on their site
    Do not exceed 3.5 Litres of water per day, this can be dangerous on a VLCD
    .

    I'm going to try and average 3-4 litres a day. I normally drink 2 litres a day anyway so I hope the increase won't be too much.
    Goal 1 - Reach 250 lbs
    Goal 2 - Fit into my Dorothy Perkins Dress (230 lbs)
    Goal 3 - Fit into an 18 at Primark

    Treat - Facial peel
