Free Weight Loss Tip: Keep a food diary. Successful "losers" do!
Divide your weight (in pounds) by 2 and that's the number of ounces of water to shoot for everyday.
Example: If you weigh 150 pounds...
150 / 2 = 75
You should therefore drink 75 ounces of fluid (or ~ 9 cups)/day.
(Decaf) coffee or tea, unsweetened beverages and artificially sweetened beverages like Crystal Light, etc. are OK to drink, but water should be your first choice :)
