    The past 3 or 4 days I've really found it difficult to drink my water, I've got flavouring but even that's putting me off now!

    Any tips?? I'm only managing 3 litres a day and want it to be 4.

    What size bottles are you drinking from? or you drinking from a glass? I drink 500ml and refil from a 2litre from the fridge. I find the 500ml easier to drink and seem to drink it effortlessly as if i had a one litre bottle it would seem like forever drinking it. sam with 750ml at least this way i can keep track so 8 500ml bottles is 4litres hope this helps.

    Id say everyone has a diff way but this is what works for me. I really struggled to in the begining in week one i drank 2.5l daily, week 2 drank 3, week 4 drank 3.5litre. and now on 4litre a day but i could drink more if i wanted :)

    This little piggy goes wee wee wee all the way home!

    Me too,,, I seriously struggle to drink the water......
    have bought a big jar of decaffeinated coffee and just keep on drinking that.
    Water to me, (unless i am really thirsty) takes some shifting to get down. Specially the amount we need to drink.

    And the amount that I do drink makes me feel like the little piggy who goes wee wee wee all the way home! How do others cope????

    At work I take 2 x 2ltr bottles and use a large glass which I top up - I can't refill a bottle at work I'd ending up probably spilling!!!

    At home I've got a 1ltr bottle at home that I refill from the tap - this seems the easiest as it's only 4 refills but still, I can't seem to get the last one in and I HATE drinking late at night cause then I have to get up in the night for the loo and I'm not good on broken sleep!!!!!

    Just keep a 1 or 2ltr bottle next to you all the time, and fill it up when ever its empty...

    I find I have managed better since using water at room temperature. Iced cold water is hard for me to get down at the mo.

    God, I retch when drinking thr water, it's awful. I seldom manage two litres even. I have to hold my nose and just glug then put up with about two minutes of retching haha!! However, my CDC who is also a RGN tells me how vital the water is, it is as important as cutting things out. She says it's as important as the shake!! Still bloomin grim!!

    I have good and bad days, I actaully reached 4 litres on Thursday. I used to drink 4-5 litres a day last time, but I just cannot manage it anymore, even with the flavouring

    I can totally relate to that. I used to drink 4-5 litres when I was on LL. God knows how.

    I can not believe anyone can drink more than two litres and not lose the will to live LOL!! It is GRIM, awful stuff!! I can't do black tea so I have to have a dribble of skimmed milk which I know won't help with the ketosis! Grrrrrrrrrrrr!!

    Have you tried drinking through a straw?
    Kitteh suggested it a while ago and it definitely works for me!
    I'm usually a little naughty though and add sugar-free squash. Not recommended for SS but for me it doesn't affect ketosis.

    Oh right, i suppose a tiny dribble of sugar free squash won't kill it all too much. Better a diddy dribble and drink lots more water than no squash and not enough water!!! Does anyone else use a diddy bit of sugar free squash on SS?
