    you must must must have all 3 packs - else your body will go into starvation mode and hold on to any extra weight...

    3 shakes and keep gluggin the water :)

    It will get easier to consume the water and it makes a HUGE difference.....maybe get some flavouring from your CDC next time, it's a nice change from plain water. I found it hard to drink at the start, but it's amazing how quickly your body adapts and you really need it after a while........keep at it - the rewards are well well worth it.

    i NEVER used to drink water before CD and now drinking 5l a day has become a routine and i actually like it. when you start seeing the results, you will be spurred on to keeping to the diet.

    i keep getting weird cravings too. pork pie with pickle was the latest one...i have never eaten pickle! xxx

    I find the only way I can do it is by using a STRAW x I can sit at my desk and still type whilst drinking a pint at a time, I find not having to glug it down helps. I swear by it x

    I find it difficult 2 even look at the water on top of the 3 shakes but I add a lot more water to my shakes (750ml) when I make them and I also add ice cubes when in the blender. Some people may not like the shake flavour so weak but I prefer to get alot of my water intake out of the way like this.

    I do not like still water, so i buy the 32pence 2 litre bottles of fizzy water from Tesco. I don't find it has any adverse affects either.
    I drink about a litre of fizzy water and the rest in plain water and cups of green/mint tea.

    Hi Tracey113,
    I have to set myself targets every day. Monday - Friday I have 2pts of water before I go to work, then have a pt in the morning and a pt in the afternoon, so then i know i have drunk my quota, anything on top of that is a bonus! At weekends i find i struggle more, so i try and drink 2 pts before my 1st shake, then 2 pts before my 2nd, after that its bonus time again before my 3rd shake.
    It is difficult though, ive cut down on my tea drinking, which i find hard as i love my cups of tea!

    Keep trying though, the benefits are worth it in the end.

    I was really good at drinking etc but I have stopped doing that so much these days. I am drinking more black tea though so I am hoping that will compensate a bit :)
