    Heya
    I'm trying to figure out how much is 'enough' apparently, its your body weight cut in half in oz thats the recommended amount..so say some americans I've spoke to hehe.
    So..if you weigh 200lbs its 100oz that youre looking for daily, I tend to drink about 2 litres or have been trying to last couple of days.
    I think it should help losses as it avoids you confusing thirst with hunger etc. Hope this helps. xxx

    I struggle to drink a litre some days, then others i can drink about 3! it all depends tbh .. weather, what you eat (spicy foods) if your not feeling well, time of month etc, everything changes the amount you feel like drinking tbh! I'd just stick to whatever you was doing before green tea is good! and then i think the recommended amount is 2 litres a day?

    I aim to drink 1.5-2L a day. I have a 750ml bottle to help :)
    Dont forget alot of your fluid intake comes from food as well so you can overdo it on water.

    I drink anything from 0.5 litres to 4 litres depending on my mood and how much pepsi max I have had.

    I've not noticed the amount of water I've had having any effect on my losses at all

    I hate water, drink about a litre and a half of sugar free juice and diet drinks on top of that

    WW say you should drink around 1.5/2l of FLUID a day. Ive never found drinking more or less has any effect on my wi though
