If you don't like water and have a hard time drinking it start out slow, I used to hate water, and now I drink it all the time. What I did was keep a 3 oz. bathroom glass in the kitchen, and everytime I went into the kitchen I made myself drink at least 3 oz. of water, eventually I started drinking more and more.

Of all of the tips I learned while losing weight, drinking my water at room temp was the most life-changing for me! I had been sipping my cold water all day until I discovered (learned from a seasoned dieter) that if I drink my water at room temp I could gulp it down in seconds. 2 litres of water has been a minimum of water intake for me since then...for the last 2 years...and it is EASY.
I do not like drinking water, but I learned how to increase the amount I drink. I just take a full swallows here and there during the day. After this, I find that I have more of a taste for how plain it is. I actually then I find I want to drink juice less. Also drinking hot water (without a tea bag even) also makes water more appealing.
