Weeks 1 to 8

Drink 2 liters of water a day.

Guidelines:
Try and take time out of your day to drink 2 liters of water. It is a great way to keep you system clean and help you digest. Many people forget to drink while eating. They will drink before they start and at the end of the meal, but try and take time between bites to drink water too.
