    Hi, I'm drinking at least 5-6 litres. Was told that more was better but not had first weigh in yet so not so sure now.

    I aim for 3 litres a day - honestly don't think I could take more and am happy with my losses so far. I think 3-4lb losses are pretty normal after the 1st week.

    I know there was a thread a while back on water intake and there is believe it or not a danger if you drink TOO much water, the amount escapes me now.. perhaps mini can help?

    I TRY to drink 3 litres but I tend to drink 2litres and a bit. That excludes my shakes, coffee and teas I consume throughout the day.

    I tried drinking about 5 litres a day and got a 1lb loss over a week and a half so I cut down to three and the weight came off. I got weighed this morning and had 5lb loss but everybodys different. Can you retain water if you drink too much? Cos I think I was retaining too.

    I have drunk 2 litres a day for the last 4 weeks but must admit to being a bit "bunged up"!!!!!! Having read this board I have started upping it a bit. Today I've managed 3 litres and 2 coffees, not sure if I can manage much more without spending half the night on the loo!!!!!!!!

    I find it easier to drink if it is very cold.
