    Just thought I'd ask, how much do you all drink?

    Here's my little trick - I have two bottles, one 1litre bottle and a half a litre bottle - I have one always at my side and one stored in the fridge so when I finish with one, I refill it and put it in the fridge, that way the water is always nice and cold!

    Also if I have a clock by my side, I will time myself how long I'll take to drink a bottle, for example if it's quarter two the hour, I will make sure I have finished that bottle and move onto the next by the hour.

    And I always make sure I drink lots of water before and after my shakes! (Straight away)

    Little things like that make sure I have plenty of water and keep my weight losses fairly big (Or at least I hope lol)

    Anyway if anyone wants to share their tips that would be cool :)

    Hope everyone is having a good day!

    Nice method. I usually get 4 500ml bottles and drink them with a straw. It's much easier for me that way.

    Aslong as your method works for you but remember to spread your water intake throughout the day :D

    I have a 1.5ltr bottle and drink 3 of them a day. Drink one between 6:15 and 11:15 when i am at work. Another by 3pm and another by 7pm (just before bed!! lol)

    I'm on about 31/2 litres at day. That's about all I can manage. I was only on 2 litres when I started this so I have improved a bit!

    I've been keeping a tally of how much I drink, just to make sure, and realised I'd got to about 4 litres a day. Not including meals.

    I go to full time work next week and hope I'll still be managing at least 2 litres. I'll be working from home some days so that will be easier.

    Also, every time I go out (shopping, to cinema etc) I have a water bottle in my bag, that certainly helps - and stops any temptation/reflex to grab a coke zero!

    I believe that the more you drink the more you feel you need/want to drink.

    I get through between 3 and 4 litres of water a day during the week, but come weekend I'm no where near as good. I think it's because I do so much running around at the weekend that I just forget to drink (and I'm always worried that these flip top sports bottles are going to leak in my handbag. lol) I'm going to make a determined effort this weekend to make sure I get through at least 3 litres each day.

    Someone else does that Toni, I cant remember who, they chill the mint tea and love it. I haven't tried it myself, but I think I may try that myself tonight when I get home from work and drink it tomorrow.
    I have a 1.5 litre bottle, so I drink 2 of these every day, I think I can handle that better by just thinking, I only have to drink 2 of these, where as the 500ml bottles equates to having to drink 6 bottles - I know its all mental and psychological thoughts but it makes it easier for me :p
