I drink quite a bit of water too. For the first week I would say, I went to the bathroom a lot, but then my body was used to it. About 6 years ago I did a very unhealthy weight loss thing where I drank a gallon of water a day, ate one super small meal, ran my butt off at work for 8 hours and never sat down, and after work I had a beer and liquor diet basically. I drank anywhere from 12-24 bottles a beer a night and danced my brains out for about 4 hours a night. The only time I sat was when I was driving to work or to the bar, otherwise I was up and moving constantly, oh and of course sleeping about 6 hours a night. It was CRAZY! I lost 70lbs in 3 months, which felt awesome at the time, but look where I am now....I have gained that 70 back along with about 40 more. So take it from me, please, try to aim for 1-2 lbs a week. Sometimes we like to think YAY its coming off so fast and think its great, but remember its a lot easier putting it back on. I know from my own personal experience- I would never want to lose that fast again or ever be the person I was back then.

I wish you luck, and hope you meet your goal steady, but gradually :)

I average between 80-100oz/day. It's not all straight water because I usually have 2-3 cups of herbal tea/day.

I drink roughly a gallon of distilled water a day, especially now during the heat wave.

A gallon a day seems reasonable for this time of year, I drink almost that much. I would pump up your cardio to an hour a day.

I live in California and it gets really hot where I live. This house is an old house and really keeps in the heat so I do have to drink as much as even two gallons of water a day and sometimes I do. But we are exercising everyday and are active through out the day as well. I have not worries about my kidney's failing me or dying because of too much water. When you live in a hot area you need the water to sustain you so you don't get heatstroke. I had pneumonia a few years ago and because of that I want to be healthier. That was the first time to getting pneumonia. Well thanks for responding about the topic that I posted.

I've been avidly drinking water since it was my "prescription" for kidney stones. -- However, when I was telling my MD that I was taking in as much as 3 qts, he cautioned about electrolyte imbalances UNLESS I was actively exercising quite a bit each day.

Today I got some of my water from 40 oz of tea...1 herbal & 1 not. (I do combine liquids at times to count for my water intake.) For me, technically, that would be liquids without sugars to process.

"I am really in need of some advice for me and my fiance on how we can lose ten pounds in a month with not straining ourselves as we go about it. "

Spark recommend a 1 to 2 pound weight loss per week.

As long as your urine isn't absolutely clear, you should be alright.
But you COULD check with your doctor!

Drinking 16 glasses of water a day instead of the suggested minimum of eight doesn't sound unreasonable to me, but I wouldn't push it farther than that. Peole have actually died from drinking too much water. It overwhelms the kidneys, if I remember correctly. Plus, I think it would be agravating having to go drain the bladder that frequently!

I just started drinking a gallon of water a day yesterday. Me and my fiance have just one gallon a day to see if it will help us. Well I know that I have more energy then I did before when I wasn't drinking a gallon of water a day. Now on our second day of drinking a gallon of water and I have completed the gallon today already and it is only 3:25 pm. I just got done working on my yard. Trying to get it ready for the winter time then summer again with some fresh flowers. I am really in need of some advice for me and my fiance on how we can lose ten pounds in a month with not straining ourselves as we go about it. We do have a work out for 30 minutes a day and then we finish at night with a yoga or dance work out. Before we go to bed we eat and then shower and we feel much better then we did when we woke up. Well I would like to hear what you have to say about your day in the morning's and how much water a day you drink. Weather it be a gallon or more. I am looking forward to hearing from any of you so we can keep this topic up. Thanks for reading and have a great work out and day or night where ever you are.
