    I hate drinking water. Simple as.
    I admire people who can gulp down two litres a day.
    I can hardly manage three glasses.
    Any advice on how to start drinking more?
    Thanks x

    Do you drink tea? My mum hates water but she makes up for it by constantly drinking tea.

    I like water, but I hate fruit and veg so I kind of know what you mean. You know you should be consuming it but its not enjoyable :(

    Oh tinkerbelle888 I agree I don't smoke and can just about survive without a bit of choccie but coffee is my thing!!!!!
    I must drink 6-8 cups a day I like it strong with no sugar so don't really see the harm it's made with the dreaded water!!!!!

    Haha when I have anything with veg I always eat the veg quickly and at the start to get it over with!

    well does coffee have water in it...or am I clutching at straws here?! Im not a hot drink person you see.
    But yeah..I'd rather have the wine without a doubt!

    I can't stomach plain water either, so I make sugar free squash. I have a 2ltr jug which I fill and just keep topping up my glass all day until it's gone........ then I can "treat" myself (lol) to a can of diet cherry coke.

    I'm another one who spends all day running to the loo, which is annoying :rolleyes: and I also have to go 2 or 3 times in the night.

    Oh, just had another thought for the water haters - what about sugar free jelly? That's made with a pint of water and only has 32 cals for the whole thing :D
