    I have been thinking about this and I really must get into the habit of drinking more... I dont drink tea or coffee, just NAS squash, Diet Lemonade or Diet Coke, but like today it is 2.30pm and I havent had a drink yet :banghead: I must drink more :eek:

    i can go ages without drinking anything, its ridiclious! even water with weak squash (no added sugar) must be just as good, surely? :)

    This is often discussed and i think the outcome is that it doesnt have any impact on weight loss. but i could be wrong! dont forget that alot of the water comes from the food you eat as well.

    This website that i was reading was saying that it does something to the liver, which then does something to the metabolism etcetc, basically if you give your body the amount of water it needs to function correctly, it helps? whoooooo knows x

    Nah it doesnt actually make any difference. So long as youre having the correct amount of FLUIDS thats the important thing.

    Water might not make you feel as bloated as fizzy drinks but as far as weight loss goes, makes no difference if its water, juice, tea or whatever

    You might have had the same loss without it though ;)

    Even WW themselves say its not necessary to drink water but essential to have the right amount of fluid. There was a thing in one of the papers recently about how this is one of the big diet myths. But its certainly better for you than things like diet coke and if you enjoy it - go for it

    I read that caffeine can cause fluid retention, so maybe thats why some people might get a better loss by drinking water.
    I used to drink far too much diet coke until i started ww and i went cold turkey, i feel alot more energised and less bloated round my tummy.

    I'm not sure how I'm going to manage when I start Exante. Drinking 3litres of water a day will be torture

    The only reason people say to drink water is because of the other pros like no sugar so better for your teeth etc and also like Starlight said because of bloating, i only drink water / squash dislike fizzy pop.. and my WI's are the same either way tbh

    but if you want something to try to speed things up a lil try green tea! find this helps
