    I haven't been drinking as much water the past 3 weeks and have definitely noticed a difference and not for the better! Not sure if it's the water or running up and down stairs to the bathroom that did it, but need to kick my ass to start drinking more of it again!

    I used to have an old 4 pint milk bottle that I would fill up with water and drink during the day and it seemed to help.

    Heaven knows why I don't do it anymore!

    I drink loads of diet coke a day. It cant be good for me but I like it and it does help wth the diet as I feel full and pee a lot (its a dieretic I think).

    My plan is to switch to water which is better for me but at the moment I kinda need the coke and so will think about giving that up further along in the journey.

    I have always drank lots of water and it helps if you drink plenty to reduce the water retension.

    I drink Diet coke too, the co-ops own brand one is only 59p and i think it taste much nicer then the brand stuff. Some own brand ones are a bit gross though. Cant even remember what normal coke tastes like!

    I always think I will do this and forget, I don't seem to be a big drinker. I like the idea of washing out a 4pint milk carton and putting water in that and seeing if I can drink more though so going to give that a go, got an empty one out on the side luckily I haven't binned it from breakfast this morning

    I don't touch water as water, but drink a minimum of 10 coffees a day, plus at least 2 2-litre bottles of diet fizzy.

    Yeah I drink my fluids with Asda lemon cordial, it is really nice.

    I have also found that since I made the effort to drink 6 pints + a day, I am not as hungry and my losses have improved. I don't think the effects can be understimated :)

    Yeah the Asda sugar free lemon squash is really nice, this is how I drink all my fluids.

    I have also found that since I've made the effort to drink 6 pints + per day, I am not as hungry and my losses have improved.

    Apparently even this is not enough, everyone should drink at least 8 pints of fluids per day, more if they are exercising or over 25lb overweight.

    I don't think the effects can be underestimated :)
