How much water do you drink?

Saturday, March 02, 2013

Before I renewed my determination to improve my diet and lifestyle, I would drink about 6 to 7 glasses of water a day. Recently I upped that to double the amount. I didn't know I was capable of drinking that much water, but really it isn't hard!

I think it has cut down on the pain I feel in my joints and muscles. I think of it as a similar effect to watering a thirsty plant. When plants are thirsty, they wilt. I think that when I am thirsty, I wilt too!

So how much water do YOU drink? What benefits to drinking water have YOU discovered?

    I drink a lot of water and have sparkling water as my beverage with dinner instead of any diet beverages. If I don't drink much, I actually start to feel bad, so no problem for me. Love water! emoticon

    I drink a minimum of 64 oz. a day, but usually go way over that. My hubby drinks 2 gallons a day! emoticon

    I drink at least 64 oz a day. I can attest to the fact that if you start early in the day it's not hard. Also can attest that it does help with joint pain! I am currently trying to up my challenge. My biggest problem is that since I teach, my restroom access is limited and if I drink a lot in the a.m. I find I need to go more often than I have access. However, this does get better over time!

    I drink about 100 ounces a day. I just read in WebMD that you should drink 1/2 your weight in ounces....200 lbs should drink 100 ounces. The results that you speak about is what is listed in the article as a positive article. Good for you!
