How do you make sure you drink enough water and how do you flavourtite it?

I don't usually drink enough water, I either forget and just don't feel like drinking, I have tried flavouring it with mint of lemon or tea but it is not great, I like it when I put BCAA in it but I am not sure how healthy it is if I don't train but it can be a bit expensive. I would like to know how do you do it and how you flavor your water?

What about fruity teas? You can make them up and let them cool and rink throughout th day.

I have a water bottle, it helps me keep track of what I've been drinking.

I also use the oasis might drops, to help flavour the water, I use much less than squash and means I drink more.....

Also fruit infusions, so your favourite fruits, say strawberry and kiwi in a jug of water overnight, then drink through the day.

Hello Mila38 and welcome to the Weight Loss Forum

Here are a few suggestions on how to get the most out of the forum. Please note if you are using the new HU App many of these features are not available so I suggest you use the full website version.

The first place to look is at the Pinned posts section to the right of your screen (bottom if you're using a mobile), read the Welcome Newbie thread first and move through to the challenges, where we hope you'll find at least one that will appeal to you. Move down to the Topics, to find a variety of threads, collated into specific topics for ease of access and we ask that you also 'file' your own threads, so that others won't miss your important news

Have a look at the NHS 12 week plan, as many people have had success with it. Also use the BMI checker to find your target calories, it's important to eat enough. This was a major turning point for me, realising I could eat anything I wanted as long as the calories are accounted for. Don't forget to take your starting measurements and a 'before' picture, as they can be very motivating on days that the scales refuse to co-operate

The forum also have group weigh-ins every day, as well as a new Daily Diary, if you wish to take part. The posts can always be found in the Events section on the 'home' page. And if you just want to chat, to say hello or share any news or struggles then look out for What's Happening Today thread.

You'll notice a grey box next to people's names, these are achievement badges, and as a new member you have a 'Newbie' badge. We've found that to get the best out of this community, we need to be active on the forum, as it's where we exchange information, get motivation and inspiration and make friends. We hope that you'll join us here, regularly, too. If you have any questions please just ask

Best wishes
