I used that calculation in the past and it always worked for me. Yes, it does mean you get to see the bathroom far more often than you are used to, but my skin was clearer, my belly less bloated, and I generally felt better. You get used to it quickly.
These days, I am going through something weird where I need extra salt in my diet. (I know, it's crazy.) So I'm careful not to drink more than 64oz of plain water everyday or it affects my blood pressure. If I want or need more to drink, I use some "hydration" tablets (nuun is the brand name and they are WONDERFUL) that help make a drink that is a lot like Gatorade without the sugar. And that tastes better (strawberry lemonade flavor is outrageously good).
Yesterday is but a dream, tomorrow but a vision. But today well lived makes every yesterday a dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope. Look well, therefore, to this day.
