Hi, I'm at home due to the bad weather with the kids. And I want to eat the things I shouldn't. Temptation all around. I have lost 13lbs so far. I know I need to drink more, anyone have any tips for the 2.25ltr

It doesn't have to be just water. Have u tried any of the herbal teas? Or you could also try the veg flavourings from Cambridge?

I thought I'd brought herbal teas and was reading something about being careful between herbal and fruit tea, So after drinking the first one I looked at the box and I had brought fruit teas. I'll put them on the shopping list

I fill up a 50cl bottle of water and I drink one as soon as I wake up, still in bed.
One after my breakfast, and so on
I find it easier to drink from a 50cl bottle, and I know I have to drink 5 of those.

I do what above poster says but with a 75cl bottle lol.

Water flavourings help a lot too and green tea is lovely!!!

Fruit teas are fine - just check the calorie/sugar content to be sure - but all herbal and fruit teas are allowed now :)

Just to clarify - the rules changed in June last year. If your CWPC is insistent that fruit/flower teas aren't allowed, ask him/her to look at the June 2012 version of the Cambridge Weight Plan book. :)

I also use a 750ml bottle, one with a sports cap, which I find a lot easier to drink from for some reason. If I have 2 of those at work thats 1.5 litres, which is easily done in 8 hours.

I also have a "travel bottle" which is 500ml, I drink one on the way to work, and one on the way home, which is another litre. That's 2.5 litres in total. I try not to drink much more when home otherwise would be wee'ing all night.
