Weeks 1 to 12

Drink about 3-4 glasses of water everyday (coffee and tea does not count)

Guidelines:
It's recommended to drink up to 64 oz's (2 litres) of water everyday to boost your metabolism and loose weight faster. Coffee and tea does not count. For me it's hard to drink as much regular water. So I lowered the limit so it would be easily reached by you all. But for those who can drink 6-8 glasses a day, please do!
