i paid $12 for an adidas water bottle, it is clear with silver glitter through the plastic and has adidas on it in pink writing, it is very pretty haha :) its 800mls which is a good size for me, cause at the gym the 600ml wasnt quite enough to get me through! i was it with detergent most days, and once a week mum attacks it with bleach for me :)

Just wondering, if you drink heaps of water, doesn't that increase your weight when you weigh yourself? Like if I drink 1L up til 12.30 then weigh myself at 1pm does that increase my weight?

i know it may sound silly but????????? :oops:

yeah it will because of the water weight. thats why its always best to weigh yourself first thing in the morning before u eat and drink anything and after u have been to the loo.

I have 1.25lt and 750ml bottles on my desk and usually get through the lot. Then sip another 750 at home but don't usually get all the way through that.

water and diet drinks

Postby Adelaide_Guy_68 » Thu Mar 15, 2007 9:30 pm

I've only been on the health kick for a couple of days but I am finding it very easy to get through 2 litres of water a day.

I also have a diet coke with my lunch and with my dinner. That is at least 3 less cans than I normally have per day.

I have had headaches for the last two days which may be due to the reduced intake of caffeine. Does that sound feasible?

What is the general consensus on these drinks (diet coke, diet pepsi etc)?

Does a couple of cans a day affect your ability to lose weight?

I really enjoy a nice cold fizzy drink and really do not want to give it up.

What do peope think about diet drinks?

I drink a can of Pepsi Max everyday and if I don't have it, I get a headache in the early afternoon. There's half the caffeine in that can than one cup of coffee, but it stills have an effect on me.

I remember reading that diet soft drinks stimulate your apetite, so you're likely to eat more when you drink diet soft drinks.

Also, the ingredients in diet soft drinks are said to be quite damaging to your health in the long term, especially to your memory - aspartame and phenylalanine. It's been a while since I read about it, but I'm still drinking the stuff! :P

I have a heap of bottles (mostly 750ml) that I half fill with water and then freeze. I top them with water and when I have drunk down to the ice I top it up again. I get through 3 of those on most days - though occasionally only use 2. I find it is good because the water stays cold, and is much more refreshing.

yeah milkyway is right about the diet drinks having side effects from the ingredients in it. ally can also inform you more on that as she has told us about them before on the forum way back. i usually have one glass (250ml) of a diet drink each day and thats at dinner time. i drink water the rest of the time. we used to go through a 30can case of coke (my fiance and i) in less than a week so its certainly a big cut down for us.

I'm terrible with my water intake.

I have good intentions and buy the 24 packs of Frantelle water from woolies but I very rarely drink 1 whole one a day.

I have 1 coffee in the morning, my water bottle during the day and 1 can of coke zero with dinner.

I find it sooo hard to up my water intake.

Im trying to cut back on my diet soft drink intake too; after finding a lesion on my liver(that ended up being benign)I decided I better cut back on the artifical sweetner I was having in a day because I know the side effects of them are pretty dodgy and surely cant be doing my liver any great favours, I have sweetner in my coffee and I drunk about 3 cans of diet soft drink a day, Ive cut back for about 2 weeks now and went thru the whole headache withdrawal thingie too but I seem to be improving now,

I don't measure my consumption on water because I know I drink enough I find I drink more water carring around bottle's of water then drinking out of a glass. Also having all these bottles around in my fridge my children drink alot of water as well

I am a bit worried about my husband thought because he dosn't drink any water at all only in cordial he dosn't drink it at all because he dosn't like the taste of it even when he brushes his teeth he can't stand it
