    Ok so explain...

    Why do we have to drink 2 litres of water when the more we drink the more we pee anyway!

    How does it help/effect weight loss?

    And any other random water facts you've got lol.. xx

    I'm not sure hun......... though sometimes I think I'm hungry, when actually I'm just thirsty, so perhaps this is why you're meant to drink lots.

    I drink 3 x 750ml bottles of water and day, and since I have I feel so much better. x

    I dont think I drink as much as 2 litres but I try and drink as much as poss, to flush out the system and also as a distraction from food! I get really bad head aches anyway if I dont drink water...

    Quite often people mistake thirst for hunger, so that's one reason. It helps hydrate your body, making everything work more efficiently, flushing things out and whatnot. It also helps fill you up a bit!!

    plus when you drink it helps kick start your liver so it's not relying on your kidneys or vice versa cant remember so your fat dealing properties are better!

    I drink quite a bit of water. Oddly I find it better to drink it out of a sports bottle than a glass. I tend to drink more that way cos I just keep taking a slurp every now and then.

    I dont drink any water, only diet coke or dr pepper zero. I always make sure that I never run out as well. But I drink a lot and I think its the drinking of fluids that is important rather than drinking water.

    But, if you dont mind drinking water then its got to be better for you than drinking diet drinks or tea and coffee. Plus, I really think that drinking helps us lose weight.

    Hi Alice,

    Yes, if you can... calcium and all that, but I guess it's not the end of the world if you don't. Don't think anything will fall off - apart from the pounds! ;)

    When I drink 2 litres a day I definitely lose weight easier, plus my energy levels are higher and my skin is better - I either drink plain fizzy water or flavoured no calorie fizzy water.
