    Hello everyone.
    I started lipotrim this morning. Everything went well and I thought the shakes and soup was quite tasty ( I know I'm a weirdo).
    I'd just like to ask how much water should I be drinking a day not including shakes and stuff.
    Also is there a limit to the amount of tea of coffee one can drink.
    Thanks xxxxxxxxx:D

    And welcome. well done for getting started

    No limit to tea and coffee without milk and sugar , tea has to be leaf (peppermint, nettle or regular) - the recommendation is that you stick to whatever amount you are used to and in terms of caffiene or decaf.

    Generally I only drink coffee as i don't like tea without milk and I take caffiene every time - usually about 8 -10 cups a day but when I started i was up to 15 cups !!

    Water is essential and basically its recommended to take 4 litres a day. The more you take the better your loss will be. I've also read somewhere that it helps with the elasticity of your skin which has to be a good thing.

    Do check in here regularly as the support is fab.

    Cheers :)

    I try and drink as much water as possible, never less than 5 pints on top of what you are having with your shakes and other hot drinks. Just keep a filled water bottle with you at all times and you will soon be racking up your pints / litres..
    Keep at it... you will get there

    I have just started week 3, I lost 15lbs in 2 weeks. I drink a lot of water as i have a horrible taste in my mouth. Peppermint tea also helps. when i first read the literature regarding water consumption , i misunderstood the figures and drank 8 litres instead of 5. My counsellor warned me that 8 litres could make me ill. So I am confused as to how much is too much.........

    Drink between 4 - 6 litres a day as the more you drink, the more you shrink. But dont go overboard, it can be dangerous!

    Welcome and good luck! x

    Welcome to you all and good luck.

    Sip your water throughout the day rather than trying to drink too much too soon. I usually drink about 4L excluding any coffee I drink or the water in my shakes. I make the shakes with about 400ml of water.

    If you fancy a change from the shakes then try making the vanilla or chocolate one with coffee added (latte/mocha) or the choc with peppermint tea (choc mint). I love the latte for breakfast!

    Blimey I didn't realise that the water you use in your tea doesn't count towards the 3 to 4 litres.

    It does count towards your intake it's just me! I don't count it coz I'm lazy!!!! I can never remember how many mugs of coffee I have but I do make a note of how many bottles of water I get through.

    Ooophs, so sorry to worry you, I didn't mean to! However, if you drink a lot of caffeine then I think that helps retain fluid but I'm not totally sure about that. I stick to decaff coffee coz I have enough trouble sleeping without adding caffeine to the equation!!!

    I used to love a cuppa, but hate it without milk!!! Oh well, I'm lovely black coffee and bravely bought some peppermint tea bags to try today. Someone gave me a green tea bag but haven't tried it yet - though I really should!
