    Noooo way. I’m horrible about drinking enough water! I will say that I don’t drink cokes very much, so other than at breakfast, water is pretty much all I drink. But, I know I don’t drink as much as I should – if I did, I’d be peeing every five minutes!

    I was just thinking about this the other day. I’m real peitite and I don’t drink the recommended amount either. Peeing is hampering my productivity. What do we do?

    I drink from a nalgene which holds 32 oz, so I should be drinking 2 a day, but I probably only get through 1 1/2.  However I drink other drinks besides water too, so I think I probably get my 64 ozs at some point.

    I’m pretty sure I drink *more* than the recommended amount. I have big glasses of water with every meal, carry a water bottle with me wherever I go, and drink more water in the evening as well. Funny, peeing isn’t a problem for me, haha!

    I’m the opposite – I have a 1000ml water bottle that I go through several times during a day.  An average day is 1 gallon of water, a thirsty day is 2.  I wouldn’t say I pee every five minutes… but there’s definitely a well-worn path between my desk and the bathroom.

    i go no where without my water bottle! but for a long time i *really* hated drinking water. it would make me all burpy and everything. but then last year I got a water bottle with a straw attached, and life has been good, I drink a lot now!

    I used to drink way more than the recommendation–probably about a gallon like Entangled.  I actually had my doctor yell at me and tell me I need to drink less water!  I pee all the time, and I don’t think cutting back on the water really made a difference…

    @ErinMarquerite: I’ve been told to cut down, too.  First I was given a half dozen diabetes tests, because I was always hungry and thirsty.  It took that many until he actually believed I didn’t have it.  The 1 gallon/day IS my cut down amount.  I think it’s a psychologically driven thirst at this point because there’s no medical reason I should be drinking that much.

    I only drink water (occassionally a cup of tea) but I doubt that I come close to the recommended amount. I just don’t drink a lot! A bottle can usually last me around a whole day unless I’m really thirsty.

    I killed 1.5L earlier today, and apparently it’s not a common thing?  

    When it’s summer, I definitely try to go for a gallon a day, but during the winter I tend to slack off.

    I like at least 2L a day.

    Ha, I was the one person who voted “I hate water!” I know I should drink more, but I need flavor! I drink more tea (iced and hot) than I do plain water.
