How to drink 2 litres of water!

Try drinking a 500ml bottle or about a pint with each meal, plus another 500ml when you would normally have a tea / coffee break, e.g. morning break at work.

When you are first starting out it may be preferable to drink more earlier in the day and taper off your intake of liquids later in the day so you're not up all night needing the toilet!

I followed this "How to" and it's working wonders! :')

I keep a bottle of water with me all day and refill it every few hours. Before I'm really awake in the morning, I enjoy pre-boiled warm water with a big slice of lemon (the peel is as nutritious as the juice/pulp) to get my energy flowing before meditation, yoga practice, TS challenges, and pre-dawn running or cycling. Then I follow your sensible hydration program, Sam, except that I count my 7 a.m. green tea (post-boot camp antioxidant) as part of my total hydration. It sure helps extend my unbroken sleep pattern if I have only small amounts of water after 5 pm!

I used to never drink enough, for years now... Last week we were invinted for lunch and when my friend was about to trash a 2 litres bottle of Evian I asked him if I can take it. So this chllenge arrives just in time for me : I fill my bottle every morning, every evening it must be empty. And the most amazing is that because I see my bottle I often feel thirsty and I have to refill it in the middle of the day. So it's about 3 litres, plus 1 litre of tea a day. 4 litres a day now ! YES !

The visual, aka bottle; helps as a reminder. Good thinking on your part!

Great how to! It may be preferable to drink the 500mL a little while before the meal though - not only does this help you feel full but it prevents the stomach acids (which aid digestion) from being diluted.

I just want to verify if I'm correct... 2 liters are 68 oz.

2 litres is approximately 4 pints, which I think is about 64 fl.oz.
