    Na, I think it's junk, promoted by water companies. Loads of the water you need comes from your food and other drinks. Even things like tea and coffee that are diuretic are only a little bit, not to the extent that they dehydrate you IMO. Check your pee- if it's a light colour you're drinking enough so don't mess, if it's dark- drink a bit more. Drinking too much is BS, it dilutes all your minerals and electrolytes and stuff, just... go with what feels normal for you.

    I think "What would happen if..." (TV show on Nat Geo) did an experiment which basically ended up as only needing 1.5 litres of water per day. Partly due to what Katralla said above about food.
