    I'm hoping to manage to down 2 litres in addition to any black tea I drink. Just wondering how much everyone else gets through. I manage to drink loads in summer but I have a feeling I'll struggle in this cold weather. Anyone got any tips as to how I can keep up to it?

    I'm doing all about w8 - I try to drink about 3 - 4 litres - that includes any tea or coffee that I drink. Have switched to bigger mugs so that I don't need to fit in more drinks - just make the ones I do have bigger. I also keep a 750 ml bottle of water with me at all times and sip throughout the day.

    I have a litre water bottle and make sure I've finished it by lunchtime, and then refill it and drink a second litre in the afternoon. I work in a school and manage to fit in a mug of black coffee at break and lunch time, plus another one at home in the evening. Probably manage about 3 litres altogether, but I'm hopeless without the discipline of my litre bottle! :)

    I drink between 3-4litres.
    I fill 4 litre bottles up in the morning and then drink them through the day, I can only manage it this way coz the water is room temp, I hate cold water in the winter!

    I've only started today but am aiming for 2.5 litres. I just can't cope with drinking and toileting trying to fit in 4 litres. Last time I did CD I was having 2litres a day and I lost a stone the 1st week. I would say don't take much notice of the 'the more you drink, the more you'll loose' phrase ... at the end of the day you do what feels best for you. Exante reccommend 2-3 litres a day hun XOXOX

    Thanks all. I think I'll buy a 1 litre bottle tonight and keep refilling it from my filter jug. Have had 2 glasses so far, will aim to have one every time I go in the kitchen.

    I drink at least 4 litres a day, I have a 1 litre bottle that I fill up and carry round with me. I'm lucky I don't really have to force it down I've always drunk alot of water and I really do feel thirsty alot of the time! I think having a water bottle helps though cause it's always there with you.

    I tend to drink about 3 litres (but then even when not on this diet I normally drink about 2 litres).

    I sometimes have mugs of hot water when it's cold - a bit of variety from cold :)

    Good luck
