Water accounts for around 60% of the body weight of the average adult so the amount of water we consume can make a huge difference to how we feel both physically and mentally. Dehydration can often lead to headaches, tiredness and mood swings, which can make it harder to stick to a new diet programme.

As a key part of the programme, we ask you to drink around 2 litres or 8 glasses of water each day. This may seem a lot but it is in line with healthy guidelines and will help to make you feel more alert, support your digestion and help to keep you feeling full. More importantly it establishes water consumption as a healthy habit, so that even when you reach your weight loss goals, you can continue to reap the health benefits of water consumption.

Tea & Other Drinks

Combine your daily water intake with other drinks such as tea and coffee and diet soft drinks, in moderation, throughout the day.

  • Fruit and herb teas are a great choice as they are calorie free and come in a range of flavours.
  • Limit coffee, tea and other soft drinks to 3 drinks per day in total
  • Avoid fruit based drinks such as pure fruit juices, smoothies and full sugar soft drinks as they are often high in sugar
  • Say no to lattes or cappucinos
  • Use sweetner rather than sugar when having tea or coffee


Within the Celebrity Slim guidelines you can still treat yourself to a glass of wine or a small low carbohydrate beer 2 – 3 days per week on the TRIM or MAINTAIN Phase.

  • Use a smaller glass (125ml)
  • Choose a dry white or red wine rather than a sweet white or rose as these contain more sugar and therefore more calories
  • If you prefer to drink a spirit, ensure that it is a single measure
  • Mix with a diet mixer such as a slimline tonic, soda water, diet coke or diet lemonade
  • If you are on the ACTIVE Phase, then you cannot have any alcohol as this may hinder your weight loss results
  • Whilst there is nothing wrong with having an occasional alcoholic drink, drinking too much can be harmful to your health. In addition to the associated health risks, alcohol can often have a high calorie content, so we recommend you reduce your consumption to maximum weight loss and improve your overall health.
