    Hello - had an iffy couple of weeks and have struggled to be honest. Still not hit the 1 stone off mark and this is my 5th week.

    After a "fat day" yesterday - when I was in tears - have started yesterday and today with renewed enthusiasm.

    Am swimming at lunchtimes and walking at night and drink about 8 pints or more of water a day.

    But is this too much or does it not matter???

    Hiya,

    I drink around 4-5 litres a day depending how I am feeling, The least I will drink daily is 3l,
    Dont forget the more you drink the more you shrink.
    I think the most you can drink is about 6litres..

    Hope this helps..

    xx

    8 pints is fine, it works out at about 4 and three quarter litres.

    In answer to your other question you can drink too much water as it starts to remove the bodies natural salts and sugars, which is fairly dangerous. It's impossible to put a number on how many litres one individual should consume, as we're all very different.

    What you're drinking sounds good, but i may be corrected by someone else.

    at my training day i asked this question... as well as many others lol...

    no there is no limit, this is what the medical director said.
    as long as its spaced out over the entire day and not glugged in the space of 1 hour.

    common sense will tell you how much to have in one go, and also your tummy! only so much you can have inside you!

    so no excuses now, get drinking!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think if you drink about 17 litres a day something goes wrong with your electrolytes (or something to that effect) but your chances of drinking that much are slim.

    hi
    i drink all the time, 2litres of water when get up.
    throught the night another 2litres of water.
    throught the day about 8l. so about 12litres
    thats not every day,
    in winter about 4 to 5litres. a day
    in summer 12litres and above a day.
    we r all different, drink what your body can handle (cos too much water can make one sick).

    lot water, salt, sugar don't go too well together. those 3 creat water retention. (my belief)
    No salt or sugar is added to my diet, water retention never being a problem for me. but going to the loo every 5 mins is. Lol:D

    i know, but my body can handle it and handle it well. thrush, cytisty, or any kind of kidney and urine infection r the things of the past.
    i go to the loo every 5 to 10 mins.:sigh:

    Okay, well click here

    http://www.minimins.com/cambridge-diet-forum/54443-8th-aug-8th-sept-buddies-challenge.html

    Read the starter part, and then add your

    id which is still1 and then add your first name
    then add your cdc name and area
    then add what you weigh now
    and what you like to lose between 8th aug to 8th sept

    Also rep power, is when someone thinks you have left good advice, and the tiny scales in the middle of the green circle and warning sign is the one you click to say someone has been helpful...
