    Hi everyone,

    I see that you are all still doing great! I need advice....I am going out at the weekend with friends i only see every few months. Do you think it would be ok to have a few drinks if i stuck to shorts and diet coke. I know that you can drink Vodka on the Atkien diet...no Carbs!

    dear mini, I'm so glad I read this blog, I have been pressured by friends to just have 1 drink, but I refused, so glad I did, I didn't realise how dangerous alcohol could be when in ketosis. Thankyou!! Me and soda water are becoming best friends..lol

    As mini has shown you with the link it is definately a no no......but just think once you are at target and maintaining your new shapely figure you can celebrate then.

    does quantity of water really matter?

    Hi,
    I think I drank less water last week than usual. My weight los was also less last week than it had previously been. I understand that we should not drink less than 2L per day on Lipotrim, but the range could be between 2 to 4 or even 5L.
    My question is, is weight loss slowed down if you tend to drink just 2L per day?, or is wt. loss directly proprtional to amount of water drunk? Should I be aiming for 3L and above to increase my weight loss?
    Thanks!:)

    I don't know the official answer but personally I'd want to wait just a little longer before consuming alcohol, just for my own peace of mind.

    I'm sure someone will be along soon who can give you a better answer though.

    its just i am going on a stag weekend on 1st August!!!
    i started the diet on 8th July and hoped to go until 25th then go onto refeeding in preparation of going away.
    if this isnt enough time then i will probably go until 22nd as it will compete 2 weeks on and then refeed until 1st.
    i then plan to go back on when i get back.
    i know i shouldnt really go on and off it, but either i could have waited to start in august or start straight away and i thought the sooner i start the better!!

    Hi ya, I was told by my nutritionist that we used to drink 6 litres but they found people were retaining water so now it is only 2 to 3 litres a day. The important thing is that if you feel hungry that you drink because you are actually thirsty. But you definately need 2-3 litres, more if you exercise. If you reduce it too much you can no longer metabolise fat. hope that helps.
