I don’t drink quite that much, although I should. Usually in a day I will have 3 bottles of Nestle Pure Life. Each bottle is 1 PT & .9 fl oz, and 3 bottles equals 50.7 oz total. So I guess I’m still falling short by 13.3 oz, but it feels like I drink a ton of water.
I guess I need to add ONE more bottle to my day, but I already have to pee constantly so I don’t know what I’d do.
There’s always adult diapers I guess LOL.

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 just drink around 24oz a day!

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.

@ Entangled & Erin – Whoa! A gallon a day? No way! I’d NEVER leave the bathroom hahaha…
Do you all think that drinking water stretches your stomach out? Like, so you’re hungrier? I’ve heard that drinking water can stave off hunger, but my body doesn’t buy into that crap LOL. It’s like “THAT is NOT food. I NEED FOOD!” So then, I must eat 🙂

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.
