    I have drank nearly 5 litres of water.
    Because i was not at home i bought 2x 1.5 litre bottles poured some flavoured powder in the bottles before i knew it i drank 1 bottle, then another and i early have demolished a 2 litre bottle that will be it for the night.
    God save Evian..I obviously could not et on with cold tap water, i like luke warm water.:D

    I've got to have mine at room temperature, otherwise it takes me ages to drink it. How much did you normally drink.

    My LL "counsellor" told us 2 litres is enough, as previously they said to drink 4, but have since been told that to drink 4 or more isn't good, and to drink too much isn't good for you, which I've also read in health guidelines.

    4 litres is just right if you can manage it. It only becomes a health problem if you drink more than 10 litres a day so don't worry!
    You'll find if you drink more your weight will come off quicker too. I always find I have rubbish weeks when I've not had my 4 a day. Not sure how it works but it does!
    Well done and try and keep drinking- your skin will start to look amazing too. I look like I've been airbrushed!

    yes, 4 litres works best fro me too

    Hi Lynn
    I tried reducing the water when they changed the guidelines, but soon went back to 4 litres a day. It seems just right.:party0027:

    I'm finding as the days go on I'm feeling thirstier, not sure if its because I'm in ketosis. I drank 6 litres yesterday, was in and out of the loo all day though, plenty of exercise up and down the stairs:).

    i'm the same minime. I get thristy all the time if I don't have my daily 4 litres or more. Plus my breath starts to smell too if I don't drink enough. It's the best way to avoid such a lovely side effect!
