    That's sad! For a nintendo wii Can hardly believe it.

    Caution to all to not drink too much water over a short period. Try to spread it through the day AMAP.

    Thanks Tracie.

    She did drink 6.2 litres in quite a short space of time I think. 4 Litres spread throughout the day should be fine.

    OMG, this may explain why I felt so drunk. I did post about a week ago, "is it possible to get drunk on water"?

    I am drinking about 7/8 litres a day, may be I should reduce this?

    Hhmmm..... The most I'd go to would be 6 litres and in all honesty that would be on account of doing exercise :cool:

    How much water did she drink?

    I completely agree that it is possible to drink too much water. However one cannot go soley on the standard guidelines since on a VLCD one is not consuming food so no proper water content. However since water is added to make up the shakes and soups I wonder why that doesn't contribute to water intake as pound for pound there's more water in a soup or shake than there would be in a bread and butter sandwich ......

    However one thing I wanted to

    I could do 8 plus my packs no problem, Ive only had one day where Ive almost done 10 without realising and did feel a bit off with myself.

    Since my fall of the wagon a few months ago i usually manage 6 a day.
