    I've been struggling with my water for the last few days and have only drank about 2 pints.
    Will this have a bad effect?

    You need to drink your water to make sure you stay healthy :)
    I feel awful when I don't drink enough, headaches, dry skin etc

    Maybe try splitting it up throughout the day in smaller glasses to make sure you get it all down you xx

    I don't lose if I don't drink, but I think it affects everyone differently. Carbohydrates contain a lot of water, so dehydrating is a real issue. I hate water!

    They used to claim that you needed water to burn fat, but I think the Jury is still out on that one. I just need it to stay regular and not be constipated. That and it makes me feel good.

    I thought that water cleared you of ketones, so the more you pee out the more your body produces (???)

    I get terrible headaches if I don't drink enough. Drinking 3 - 4 litres of water a day is a lifestyle change for me now. My skin, digestion, hair and general well being has improved since starting on water. It helps that I like it too.
