Question: How much water should I drink when on the Cambridge Diet?

It is very important to consume at least eight glasses of water or other liquid per day. Since our bodies consist of over 60 per cent water, it is very important that we constantly replace our body fluids. Sufficient liquid intake is also necessary to maintain proper kidney function.

Question: Why must I drink so much?

There are several reasons. A good rule of thumb for good health is to drink 4 pints (2.25ltr) of fluid a day whether trying to lose weight or not. If the Cambridge Diet is used as the 'Sole Source' of nutrition, this is the minimum for good health -6-8 pints (3 to 4 ltr) would be even better. The reason include:

A very low calorie diet (VLCD) like Cambridge produces a natural water loss and this must be replaced.

Food is largely composed of water, just like our bodies. On the "Sole Source" programme it is necessary to compensate for the fluid that would otherwise have been taken in through food. It is important to keep the body's fluid levels topped up to prevent the unpleasant symptoms of dehydration - headache, dizziness, fatigue, irritability and constipation.

The Cambridge Diet offers complete nutrition but in a very concentrated form. It is therefore ideal to have 250ml (1/2 pint) of water before each diet to dilute the concentration of minerals and to help prevent any possible feeling of nausea.

Extra fluid enables the body to get rid of waste products associated with the breakdown of fats resulting from weight loss.

I hope that helps to explain it.
