Hi there, I am a bit confused as since starting the Atkins diet I have been told by many people that you must drink around 8 glasses of water to lose weight on Atkins. I started Atkins about a month ago and lost 6lbs in my first week and 2lbs in my second week and then nothing at all for 2 weeks. I upped my water intake etc and was not cheating at all. However, I thought to myself on Monday "right im not going to drink any water and see if it makes a difference" Since Monday I have only drunk sugarfree sucralose sweetened Asda lemonade or sf squash and have lost 8lbs since Monday!! I am confused! That sort of shows me that if anything all that water was actually causing me to stall, im better off with no water(except water in the squash which is about 2 glasses a day)/ Any thoughts on this? V confused!
