How much water should we drink per day?
I try and get at least 3 litres plain water per day plus about 4 big black coffees and 1/2 litre before work with my berocca.

I have read that if you drink too much your body retains it aswell.
Are there any articles out there that say how much we should drink?

God..I struggle with 2 litres :(

I know with lipotrim you have to have at least 2, its very similar ie you're in ketosis....so maybe thats the minimum?

I can just about manage the 2 litres and then there is usually 3 coffees on top of this .My problem is i am coming and going on school runs ,swimming etc and if there is no loo near i have to curtail my water intake. I am very bad so far today ,must pick it up a gear.

I count everything - some days most of my fluid intake is in the form of black coffees and fizzy drinks (like today) but I always hit about 3L.

LOL (or should that be PMSL?) at the wee being fat coming out Vicky!

The book says no, I think mainly because it can trigger carb cravings in some people. I've been caffeine free for years so don't really know!

I drink about 8 pints of water a day, plus a few mugs of green tea and the occasional decaf coffee.

That's because of your weight loss Linz, I drank way more when I was on induction.

There used to be a formulae, but I can't recall it, something like a pint per 20lbs of body weight a day?

thanks peeps.
Caffeinated is ok on the new atkins and i havent cut out caffiene this time.
plus I googled and if you are 160lb you should drink 8 oz glasses per day and 9 if 180lb etc etc
so i should drink about 2 litres but more if i exercise.
