    I try to drink about 2-3 litres per day and seems to be doing me ok but I was just wondering how much everyone else drinks and is there an optimum amount?

    well I have 3 x .75l bottles of water a day
    and I also have 4 large mugs of Decaff a day too so at least an extra 1.5litres
    I also make all shakes up with at least double the water
    so my intake is more likely to be nearer the 4 litre mark

    I drink between 4 and 5 litre a day.

    I take a 750ml bottle of water to work with me and try drink two-three in the morning. I have 500ml at breakfast. In the afternoon I have 1 or 2 (try for two) refils of my 750ml bottle.

    Then in the evening I have a large 500ml glass of water with my shake and then try and have at least one more in the evening.

    Hi, I drink at least 2.5 litres - very often more. I love water so lucky in that respect. Even before starting this - I would panic if I run low of bottled water. I wake up in the night and drink it too.

    What is the maximum to take I wonder?

    As long as you don't drink large amounts (say 2 litres) at one time, I think you can have as much as you want, just make sure its spread out over the day/evening. I have it during the day though, because if I had it in the evening I'd have to sleep on the toilet lol

    I drink about 3-4 litres a day plus lots of black coffee, so me days are easier than others though but it is habit forming to drinks lots of water and a good one!

    i really do notice it if I have not drunk enough.

    There isn't really a maximum though I've heard some VLCD diets put it at 4L as this is amount that most feel is maximum needed before there is no health benefit, but it does depend on our own bodies, heat, our size, how active we are.

    Fluids are needed for good health. There's no evidence that it burns more fat or anything weird like that.

    As long as you follow your body cues, though get at least the minimum, you should be fine and space it throughout the day.

    Remember that all the allowable fluids (water, teas, coffees etc) count towards fluid intake:)
