Forums - General Discussion - How much water do you drink every day?

I only drink about 2 litres of fluid total in a typical day. 1 litre of water (flavoured with squash, usually blackberry or blackcurrant) and 1 litre of lemonade.

Physicians will tell you that only pure water counts for the water intake.

I've read differently:

Water is water. Your body doesn't care whether that H2O molecule comes from food, milk, tea, coffee, sports drinks, soda, or straight water (though the sugar in some drinks isn't good for you if consumed in excess, but that doesn't mean they don't keep you hydrated). If your body needed pure water to survive, I'd have been dead a long time ago.

The body can use all it needs to survive, it even can convert protein to carbo, doesn't mean it is optimal or the healthiest option. The most "contamination" in the water you intake the more you'll need to clean it.

Like in my conversation with the sport physician he demanded me to discount every liquid that wasn't pure water from my accounting, if not it would go to about 6L a day instead of 4. At least from his POV for my hypotiroidism threatment one of the aspects was that I needed to take 4L of pure water every day.

Usually four or five 30 ounce glasses per day. I mainly drink water, I avoid soda because the carbonation gives me hiccups, I avoid coffee because I don't like being caffeine addicted, I avoid alcohol because there is a history of alcoholism in my family and I don't want to go down that path (plus every alcoholic beverage I've tried was pretty nasty). I do drink sweet tea occasionally, and have some milk every day for the calcium.

I do about a gallon a day. If your tap water sucks ass like mine, be sure to get your water from BPA Free containers/bottles.

I don't drink enough.

Why count 1 gross poop coloured liquid and not another?

Tea's not gross.

But more seriously, tea is basically just warm water, which is even better than cold water because it gets absorbed into your body more easily, while the ingredients of coffee are actually hindering your absorbance of the water that's in it. Coffee is basically negative, because it takes water away; it dehydrates. This is also why fancy restaurants, or really any self-respecting one in the Mediterranean, provides you with a glass of plain water on the side if you order a cup of coffee.

I should be dead then, there are days I drink nothing but coffee. Not European coffee though, watered down North American stuff. Last time I had a 'cup' of coffee in Europe it came in a doll house sized cup and tasted like tar. You can't survive on that for sure.

About 3-4L

Not enough it seems, i'm stuck here 5:30 am constipated , haven't shat in days..

Probably too much. Well over the recommended daily intake levels and maybe close to unhealthy territory. Water is my favorite drink. I keep a refillable bottle with me nearly all the time. I drink at least a gallon a day. I stay pretty active on a daily basis. I do not drink soda. My hierarchy of drinks goes water, tea, fruit juice, milk, liquor, beer, coffee, soda.

About 64 fl oz at minimum, so about 8 cups. Sometimes more. Water is far and away most of what I drink. After that, it would probably be tea and coffee.
