    So... I think Cambridge recommend 4 pints of water daily... something like 2 1/4 litres.

    So far I have tried to drink at least 3 litres a day.

    Just wondered how much everyone else drinks and if it makes a huge difference.

    I know.... "The more you drink the more you shrink" heehee

    thanks, in the wekk leading upto me starting cd i worked my way up from 1ltr to 3ltr then the day i started cd i started 4ltrs, pre- cd i never drank water lol, so it was hard for a week or so, but now its not so bad, i have a 2ltr jug that i bought from tescoes in their picnic range and i know i have to drink two of them a day, i tend to have drunk 3ltrs before 5pm and the last ltr after that, otherwise i will be up peeing all night hehhe, some days i have to go out for a few hours and its a struggle to get the 4ltrs down but i make sure i do it, on the days i struggle thats when i need the loo more often, i think drinking that much has really helped my bladder control lol,

    thanks,
    the water i think is really the key, i did have a week where i didnt do 4ltrs and only did an average of 2 or 3 a day and i had a crap loss, so i made sure i went back to 4 pretty smartish lol, i have a weak bladder too, but its a lot better now,

    Hiya...

    Having previously been on LL...the minimum water was 4 litres, and i was guzzling down 5-6 litres...and lost 45lbs in 12 weeks...

    I took a week break (oops!) and switched over to CD...but because i was so used to the water...i kept guzzling like mad...

    Got my weigh in tonight...!

    More water you drink, the quicker the fat goes! ;)

    I recommend the water too. I drink 6l's a day and lost the most on my 100 days of all my group despite most of the others all having more to lose than I did and I drank the most.

    Tea and coffee can dehydrate you because they are diuretics (sp?) which means that they make you pee more :)
