Drink more water
good day, I have been on a diet where i drink just water all day and try drink 2 litres or more. It was no problem while the weather was hot but now the weather is quite cold and i have no urge to drink water at all. Do you have any suggestions how I can drink my quota of water a day.

Many thanks

Dear Claire
You can drink any liquid instead of water, such as tea, rooibos tea, and even clear soup consists mainly of water. I think you should switch over to having a normal liquid intake and drinking about 3-4 cups of water in addition, not more as this can cause electrolyte problems.
