Dear Lox
Drinking water in quantities of about 4-6 glasses a day is an excellent habit, but a) this does not actually cause you to lose any body fat, and b) if you overdo your water intake you may develop electrolyte imbalances as excessive water intake washes important minerals like potassium, sodium, magnesium and calcium out of the body. To lose weight you need to basically change your lifestyle. Reduce your energy intake by eating an energy-reduced, low-fat, high-fibre diet (click on 'Diet' at the top of this page, 'Weight loss', ‘Balanced diet' and then on 'Slimming Diet' for a copy of such a diet), and increasing your energy output by doing regular exercise (running, jogging, skipping, cycling, swimming, join a gym or Walk for Life). You can drink any liquid that does not contain added energy (check on the label of the flavoured mineral water for its calorie or kJ content).

Drinking water helps with digestion and stops you from retaining water. Diet doc can explain what they add to flavoured water because i haven't checked.
But you also need to exercise and watch what you eat to lose weight !!!!!!!!!!
