    I thought is was 8 glasses, don't ask me what size glasses, I don't drink water, just loads of tea, orange squash in the summer, so I suppose they both count.
    Too bad if they don't I'm not changing my now, it is tough enough keeping an eye on what I eat, and sticking to it.

    I drink 2.5 litres minimum a day, I measure it out in the morning into a plastic jug with a lid then leave it on the worktop in the kitchen (I don't put it in the fridge as it is too cold to drink). On top of that I have about 4 mugs of tea and maybe a bit more water if i'm out and about.

    I was told that you should have at least 2.5 litres a day. In a normal diet you should be having 2 litres anyway...some people have more but that is their choice. I have been doing CD with 2 - 2.5 litres and all has been ok..

    2.25 litres or 4 pints of water a day.

    There is this terrible fallacy that the more you drink the more you shrink. Cambridge do not endorse that and don't believe anyone who tells you this.

    I'm trying to do about 2 liters a day. It would probably be good to do more, but I can't stand spending that much time running to the toilet!
