Drinking Water

Monday, October 15, 2012

I often wonder how people drink 8 glasses of water. I feel I get acidity and feel so bloated. Does anyone have similar sentiments?

    I found that when I first get up to 8 plus glasses of water per day, I feel sloshy. BUT my body adjusts rather quickly! Within a week, my body adjusts. My chiropractor suggests 1/2 oz per pound of body weight. So I should really be sucking down about 90 oz a day. I get there sometimes, but my average is probably much closer to 75 oz.
Drink up!

    If I drink from a glass, I feel like I am drowning, but when I use a straw, I suck it down without even noticing how much. I also vary it up by drinking different temperatures of water. I often sip on a cup of hot water as if it were tea. I tend to guzzle it a room temp. No bloating problems, but lots of trips to the bathroom.

    Eight cups is not that much when you consider our drinking glasses are twice that usually.
Equal to 4 bottled water bottles, stretched out over the day. I guess it takes getting used to. But when I replace my other drinks, no problem.

    You know when I first started drinking water I too felt bloated and was peeing like every 15 min. But after a week your body does get accustomed to it.
I was a manager of Curves, and one lady told me she was at a standstill, Now i know how much drinking water helps to lose weight, so i gave her a challenge to drink 64 oz. Everyday for aweek, she did and actulaly lost more than even i thought she would!
I will drink 64 oz. of water starting Tomorrow if you will, and we will see what happens next. Tues. What do you say!!

    I have been averaging over 12 glasses of water for quite sometime now. The bloated feeling is a part of it. More trips to the washroom. Sure. But it is what the body craves more than anything else. Its what makes the world go round, and what the body go round.

    I haven't noticed any bloating. I am thirsty all the time though!
