    Does black tea and coffee count towards the water intake or do you need to still have straight water. My Pharmacist said to drink 6 pints of water a day, but already on my second tea, so just wondered if this counts towards the 6 pints.

    hey kered,
    as far as i know it does count towards your water intake. other than your shakes, tea coffee etc should count towards it! 6 pints??? thought it was 4pints? how many pints is two litres?? lol..

    1 litre = 1.75975326 Imperial pints

    She told me its 6 pints we have to drink. I am using a 1 litre bottle for my water, so I aim to drink 3 of those, which is about 5 and a half pints, so the teas and coffees should make up for the rest I suppose.

    Hi Kered,

    We have the exact same start weight, what are the chances of that, lol!

    About the water, I started yesterday and my pharmacist said she did LT herself a few yrs ago. She swore by 6 ltr of water daily in addition to tea, coffee etc. I'll try stick to that in week 1 and see if I see a much bigger amount of weight falling off than can usually be expected.

    When I last did LT 4 yrs ago I was on 4 ltr a day and lost 7lbs in week 1, it will be an interesting comparison.

    Good luck!

    Well I will have 3 litres plus the water from tea, coffee and shakes. Be good to see the comparison. Your drinking double my water though, 6 litres? I will struggle with the 3 litres, 5 1/2 pints plus tea, coffee and shakes.

    What height are you? I am 5'4.
    Lets hope we can help each other seeing as we are the same start weight. Little competition does good for the morale :)

    Guyz watch you dont drink too much water as its not good for the body, its normally supposed to be 4 litres but i have known some people who drink more than this. There is an old saying of "more ya drink, more ya shrink" but still be careful and drink slowly througout the day as well..

    Thanks Miss Unknown
    I wont drink any more than 3 litres. Just started my 3rd litre now and have been sipping it slowly. Also had 2 shakes made with 250ml of water, plus 2 cups of tea.

    You have to drink hell of a lot of water for it to have an adverse effect on your health although I do know that if you drowned this is the max your body can take;)

    The maximum a person should be drinking is 4litres, anymore than this is not good. I would never recommend drinking more than four litres to my patients! Are ya sure the pharmacist said 6litres or was it 6 pints? I read in a newspaper once that a woman drank 2 litres in one hour and died so thats why i am stressing to be careful!!

    The maximum is 4 however I do know some people on this site who takes more than that. I can just manage 3 but for those who take more its best to be very careful.

    Mine said 6 pints, so that's approx 3 litres. I couldnt drink any more than that if I tried. 3 shakes a day plus roughly 3 cups of tea/coffee takes it to around 4 litres.
