Healthy kidneys will process up to 15 liters of water a day, these women are only talking of the 2 liters that they should be drinking. You shouldn't be trying to scare them off from something healthy.

Drinking lots of water makes me feel like I'm trying to fill up a bottomless well, does nothing against hunger at all, never has. Can also help you find out that your poor kidneys are not in working order. Obsessive compulsive to drink so much water each day, and it will come back to bite you one of these days...................don't wind up in the ER folks!!

I fill 4 x 2 cup water bottles every night and put them in the fridge overnight. i drink them as follows:

- 1 cup before breakfast, finish that bottle with breakfast.
- 1 cup between breakfast & lunch; 1 cup with lunch - that's 2 bottles down
- 2 cups between lunch and dinner - 3 bottles down
- 1 cup with dinner, the last cup between dinner & bedtime - that makes 4 x 2 cup bottles

Fill the bottles again before you go to bed. Repeat each day.

I try drinking water when I first get up; but, mostly after I get back from my walk.
Drinking before and during every meal helps.
This reduces the desire to overeat.
I drink my water from a quart jar so I do not have to refill often and I track my 8 cups easily!
