If anyone is losing 30 to 50 pounds, can you tell me how much you're losing a week?
Yes, the water is in addition to
the HNS. After a time you may end up increasing the water even more. I started with nearly 80 pounds to lose back in mid April. I have lost almost 40. This works out to about 1.5 pounds per week. I purchased an additional 17 weeks last month (for $99 when they had a special) so I could keep going to get to my goal by mid-December. I was told that 64 ounces of water per day was the minimum, and that I should add another 8 ounces for every 10 pounds I want to lose. So that means for me I should be drinking 96 ounces per day!
Different people lose at different rates - I have never lost 3 pounds a week, but overall I am very happy with my progress. Good luck to you!
