I read that since your body is well hydrated it actually retains less water. It's kind of like when you're eating enough calories, your body knows it's okay to shed some pounds. Usually your body conserves all of its water like a reptile, but since its always getting water it releases. It's also suppose to clean away all the toxins your release from burning fat. Fatty tissue retains nasty stuff just like muscles do.

I, too, have heard the 8 glasses is a myth, but I try to do it anyway, just b/c it does keep my nice and hydrated, and I tend to eat healthier, overeat less, not drink other things that are bad for me, etc.

does anyone know what drinking all that water is supposed to do? I mean i'm pretty much making my eight glasses it helps with my hunger, i think. I know that it's important to stay hydrated during exercise, how about the rest of the day?

SP actually made mention to that study a couple weeks ago in the health news section. I'm still drinking my water though because it seems to work. I'll drink "normally" for a week or two and then I'll binge. The next day I'll lose two pounds and keep it off. It may just be in my head, but whatever keeps me going.

so I was listening to NPR yesterday (I think) around 6pm central time, and the had this report from this Dr about the British (or Britain) Medical journal and this study 2 professors from Indiana University. The study was all about certain medical myths we are told and believe to be true like reading in low light hurts your eyesight (apparently a myth)and that shaving actually causes the hair to grow thicker and faster. I was really suprised to hear the last one they debnked as a myth that when losing weight or living a healthy lfestyle does not require you to drink 8 8oz glasses of water per day that in fact since everyone's body is different thirst is the best measure for water consumption and for some ( i would guess very rarely)people's bodies that can cause water toxicity. Did anyone else hear this?
