I decided that I don’t drink enough water, and in my last ditched effort before my wedding I want to clear my skin and keep as healthy as I can. So I purchased a 1.5litre bottle of water on my way to work.
It’s nearly hometime for me, so in 8 ish hours I’ve finished it. I also had 1 cup of coffee, a cup of tea and a small bottle of water while at the gym.
So my question is this, do you drink alot of water? Do you think it makes any difference to your general wellbeing?

I drink a TON of water (usually between 60 & 80oz daily) and I have been that way as long as I can remember. I’m pregnant now so I make sure I drink lots of water, but even before as a distance runner I’ve always been aware of my hydration level. I have one cup of coffee in the morning, and a glass of milk with dinner from time to time, but other than that ALL I ever drink is water. Oh, and a sprite or ginger ale if I go out to dinner, but more often than not I order water.

Water absolutely makes a difference simply because you’re NOT drinking soda or other sugary drinks! I drink water all day every day. It’s really the best thing you can do for yourself. Say no to soda!

I don’t drink nearly enough water. I keep trying to do the 8 glasses a day, but it makes me have to run to the bathroom every 20 minutes!

I drink about 8-10 glasses a day. I am a thirsty girl. Up to a few years ago, I never drank water — big on juice. But I realized all the calories I was consuimg. I starting mixing juice with water, then just let it go. I love staying hydrated. lol

I am one of those weirdos that don’t like water! I hardly drink it. I would say maximum a glass a day and sometimes I’ll go a day without having any at all!

@abbie017: Once your body is used to drinking more water, the rushing to the loo every 20 minutes stops.
I tend to drink between 1.5 and 3 litres of water per day.

At work I drink at least 3 16 FL OZ of bottled water a day; not so much on the weekends.

A LOT. I really love the taste of water, especially cold water. So refreshing!
I think it does make a difference to my general well-being, because my health is generally very good and whenever I don’t drink enough I feel really thirsty and can even get a headache.
I think I used to be water-deprived and would suffer the consequences of that but not realize it, but now my body immediately complains if it happens.
I do go pee a lot, and it is not a weight-loss miracle or anything (for me anyway… I weigh the same as I did when I didn’t drink a lot of water). But I do think I am healthier.

I sip on it all day, every day. So probably between 64 and 80 oz. a day.
I used to HATE water. I wouldn’t drink it. But about 4 years ago, I had a nutritionist tell me that once you start making yourself drink it on a regular basis, your body craves it and you learn to love it. She was so right! I have to have water now.

About 12-13 cups when I’m at work. On the weekends it’s less since I’m travelling or running errands. No sodas/juices/coffees/teas

I don’t really like water, and it often gives me that sloshing around in my stomach feeling. I need to drink more, so I actually avoid water, because getting enough liquids is more important. I drink tea (all types including herbal infusions), cranberry juice, water with lime juice and club soda with lime juice.
I can still easily go with only drinking 3 glasses throughout the whole day if I’m not thinking about drinking more. I do find drinking more makes me feel better, and I’m less likely to end up with a UTI.

I usually drink about 6 bottles a day. They are 500ml so on average I get 3L a day. And I pee ALL THE TIME!
