To work out the amount of fluid you need, times 30ml of fluid per kilo of body weight; so if for example, you weighed 50kilos you do 30 x 50 = 1,500mls. Obviously if you are exercising or if it's hot then you will need to increase this. Remember drinking too much can be as dangerous as not drinking enough. Good luck with giving up sugar, it's in so many foods, and despite what people say, I am sure for some people it is very addictive.
Good luck in your diet.

Blimey 30ml per kg is an eye opener! shock

As I have rather a lot of weight to lose, that takes me over 3l per day. I am struggling with 2l and seem to be on the toilet the whole time!
