I drink between 1.5 and 2 litres. I aim for 2 but as long as I've had 1.5 I consider that job done lol. I don't count tea and coffee as part of that. I definitely think it helps, firstly because it helps fill you up and secondly because if you don't drink water your body retains it because it thinks they're isn't a ready supply, which can cause weight gain.

I know I don't drink enough and it is supposed to help with weight loss. Must try harder!

You'd be surprised how quickly you get used to it and it just becomes part of your routine habit to drink more. If I don't drink it now I get really thirsty

I manage to drink plenty as long as I have a sports bottle top!

Also theres an app you can get for your phone called "waterlogged" where you input daily and when you've reached your target you get a "You're successful" message which feels just like getting on the scales and being told you've lost! Lol

I used to have an app ( sorry can't remember what it was called) but basically it made a splashing noise every so often to remind you to drink.

Must find it and put it on my new phone..

I try and aim for at least the 6 cups of fluid a day suggested in the booklet. This isn't always straight water, though - I do love my herbal tea. It's hard during the colder months of the year - I sometimes have to force myself to drink as much, as I don't get thirsty very often (and, of course, when you are, you're already pretty dehydrated!). I have had some good losses on the weeks where I've been conscientious with my water intake, and I always make a note of drinks in my food diary so I can keep track.

That app sounds a brilliant idea, Ponytales!
