H20 Aqua water

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,323 The Mix Honorary Guru
I was reading an article the other day, I have started going to the gym regulary and they say i should drink at least a minimum of 1 gallon of water a day.

Thats 4.5 litres (i think)

How much do you drink ?

I am sure somewhere they recommend that we drink 8 pints a day, do you come anywhere close ?

    Not anywhere near it. I usually get by on a can of diet coke & a couple of glasses (if that) of squash. How unhealthy does that make me?

    When I'm at work I drink loads - not sure how much - more than needed?

    Its an excuse to get away from the desk every 20 minutes - any excuse will do. :D

    Plus, I find my eyes dry really quickly staring at this sodding screen all day, so need to drink loads - otherwise my eyes are like :yeees:

    I'm handily situated right next to the water cooler in my office, which is a good thing now, cos when I signed up for the gym a couple of months back n had my health review I was told I was really dehydrated and should drink loads more, unfortunately tho, I'm not next to the loo too :crazyeyes: :lol:

    I certainly don't drink enough.

    I used to buy bottles and bottles of water and drink them constantly. I was rarely seen without water.

    I would say I drink about 3 glasses of liquid a day. But all this talk of water is making me thirsty.

    8 pints!! Nah, must be 8 glasses or something. I think if you drink TOO much water it can cause you probs. I'm sure if I'm wrong you'll all be quick enough to tell me :p
