Depends on who you ask. I'm a believer that 'the more you drink the more you shrink' is NOT true. Yet a lot of people claim it is true. For me personally I retain water if I drink too much. Plus I feel sick if I drink too much. But everyone's different and everyone has their limits.

So long as you get the minimum of 2.25l in addition to that you have in your packs you will be fine. Drinking more water may help minimize the effects of ketosis, and if you don't drink enough can cause retention, but like Debz, I don't believe that drinking more will make you lose more!

i drink 6 pints
any more and i feel ill
i`m 5ft tall so think that`s more than enough for me

some swear by drinking loads just depends how your body uses the water
i tend to retain if i drink to much

trial and error

Can you drink too much water? I think I'm on my 9th pint, will prob have 2 more before going to bed. Is this too much?
