Do you prefer fizzy water? I don't think there's an easy way round it, but it is really essential that you do drink 4 pints (and that's a minimum really) to flush out all the toxins and fat. You could try to make your shakes/soup thinner - that would increase your liquid intake.

I'm sure with a bit of perseverence it will become normal to you to drink lots of water. Like other aspects of this diet you have to get your head in the right place. Good luck with it Sazzles.

Just drink bits at a time rather than trying to drink alot all in one go, you will see a big difference in your weight loss if you get the water down hun

My top tip- get a 1ltr sports bottle of water, buxton 36p at tesco at the min. Have it by your side at all times i am over half way through my 2nd one today and then anything i drink on top is a bonus! I struggled too before i found this bottle, hth

Hi Sazzles, What I do is fill a 2ltr bottle with filtered water every day and then I just work my way through it. Any tea or coffee is extra as far as I'm concerned so I down at least three litres a day. It does get easier as your body adjusts to the higher intake.

Just make sure you know where the nearest loo is at all times. (LOL) You'll definitely think it's worth it when the weight starts to disappear though.

Best of luck we're all behind you here.

Cheers. Pat

I use a sports cap bottle too!! never one for drinking water before LT but aim for 3 1L bottles a day. i get up with kids at half seven ish i try to drink one bottle before 11 am to 12 then have my first shake then another bottle between this time and about 3-4 pm then have my second shake and yes you guessed it another bottle between this and about 7-8pm before my last shake. I'm also managing a couple of green teas during the day just for the warmth. Never would have thought i'd drink all this water but I am and when I haven't drunk enough i feel it???? get the water down ya its key and you'll get used to it in good luck for your first weigh in xx:)

Some days though that 2 ltr bottle looks like you have a mountain to climb! The 1ltr bottle doesn't look like it can hold 1ltr so it kinda tricks your mind into not thinking about how much you are drinking, weird i know but it really does work.:)

I used to struggle drinking 2 litres of water but, the cap bottles that you can squirt in your mouth are my saviour! I have a 1L bottle with me at all times and just keep sipping from it, it's a lot easier than trying to drink a glassfull at a time. Good luck.
