    When I asked my GP what was safe he said never drink more than 12 litres of water.

    I always say to clients never anymore than 8 litres to be safe.

    I recommend to girls they have 4 litres and 6 litres for boys.

    Hiya!

    6 litres works well for me - my losses have been consistent and I never feel hungry.

    Hope this helps
    Much love, chelle xx

    Physically your body can cope with 15 litres of water but I've yet to find someone who can drink that every day!!

    I used to drink 4-5 litres of water when on LL, now I drink between 2-3 per day.
