    How much water does everyone drink?
    I try to drink between 2 and 3litres a day. Sometimes a bit more. I should probably drink more though.

    How many pints in a litre? I remember missy putting up that link that said what we should be drinking and mine was only 2.5. Cant remember if in pints or litres though. Think it was litres

    I drink between 2-3 litres of water plus countless cups of tea and coffee. I reckon I drink about 4 litres of liquid a day. Next week i'm going to cut the tea/coffee out in a bid to be strict.

    Not sure how many pints in a litre - is it 2? Actually I drink much more than 2-3 as I have a pint of water before work and then countless when I get in. I drink 2-3 litres AT work. I've always got a pint of water on the go and sipping at it. It's the only thing that quenches my thirst and I actually get banging headaches if I don't drink enough

    Recently I havent been very hungry but I do pretty much wash every mouthful down with water as well.

    What brings my uptake up though is that every night I sit with a glass and drink a 2 litre bottle of sparkling mineral water. I used to do it with diet coke (occassionally with a vodka in it. ;)) so makes me feel more normal IYKWIM.

    We should set ourselves a challenge to make sure we drink enough. Or at least start a thread and log it??

    Gosh, you are all very good. I am dreadful at drinking generally, I probably manage about 600ml of water a day a coupleof coke Zero, and a couple of coffee made with soya milk - dreadful failure. I am off work at the moment at home - I think I will try setting the oven timer hourly to remind me to drink a glass....
