2 litres of water a day

Postby James » Fri May 30, 2008 4:25 pm

Too those who drink 2 litres of water a day. What time of the day do you try to have consumed it by so that your not up every 1/2 throughout the night?

I drink my 2 litres while i am at work. I start at 8.30 in the morning and slow down the amount i am drinking by 4pm so i can make it home from work without desperatly needing a bathroom. I still have a bit of water during the evening but not as much.

Seems to go through me pretty quickly especially in winter and especially after cutting my sodium intake down from astronomical proportions to well under 1000mg a day.

I'm the same as Tara, I try to drink the majority of mine during the day at work. I have one big glass in the morning to take tablets with then the rest at work - maybe a small glass at home.

I have a 750ml bottle that I make sure I drink 3 of a day - just to make sure I KNOW I've had my 2 litres. Knowing me, if I went by glasses, I'd lose count!

Me too - I generally get though 2.5L while I am at work. I also drink at the gym but don't count that in my total as I think I'm just replacing lost fluids. I also try to drink 500mL at night time because I find that helps heaps with my night time eating... I really don't eat as much when I've got my water with me 8)

I've been trying to get mine down earlier and going easy later on in the day so that I'm not up and down all night going to the loo.

I usually drink about 4 litres of water a day, mostly early in the morning, and between 6 - 9pm.

I am unsure. I just drink all day long. I have a big glass of water before bed.

Is it healthy to drink more than 2L a day. I could understand if you live in a hot area or do lots of physical work but there has to be a limit. i would drink aout 1.5L a day, hot weather I'd get through 2L. At what point is it to much?

Cheers

Rosie :D :D :D

I know that even with strenuous activity, you can still drink too much water with out eating...
If you drink too much water, you can dilute the amount of sodium in your blood and its not good.
Football players sometimes have salt tablets to stop this...

I know this topic has been and gone but I just thought i'd ask everyone if they have any tips on jazzing up the water?

All this water is making me feel a little ill :cry: Do you add anything to your water to flavour it? I'm not quite sure if getting some low fat/sugar cordial is defeating the purpose. Are there any alternatives? And does anyone know of any cordial that isn't TOO bad for you? I really dont like the plain taste of water :(

Also, how vital is it to drink this 2L of water? I'm also trying to do it in work time so i'm not running to the bathroom during the night (i already have a problem with this, i dont want it to get worse), but im finding that i've had about 300ml of water in the las 45mins and my stomache is hurting. I mean, its really quite painful. I don't know why this is happening, i only started drinking the water today. Does anyone else have this problem? Is my stomache just trying to get used to having all this water without all the other crap in it?

Your stomach shouldn't be hurting from having water, that doesn't sound right. 2 litres is vital to flush out all the toxins in your body plus gives you healthy glowing skin BONUS!
Some thing to try is do you prefer your water ice cold, luke warm or hot? I like my water ice cold, i can keep drinking heaps if that the case. If you like your water hot have a few cups of green tea (i found out yet=sterday that i can't stand it)
Try to avoid cordial, its unnecesary calories cos of all the sugars in it. First thing in the morning its recommended a luke warm glass of water with a bit of lemon juice in it, to help the liver.
I hope you find a way to drink ouour 2l.

whit3tig3y - u can add some lemon juice to the water.

*****
I drink 2 glasses of water before breakfast, drink 1.5L of water @ work & 2-3 cups of green tea - yum. I'm now drinking 2 glasses of water b4 dinner - as of today. All this water is making me run to the toilet. :oops: Since i've upped the water intake i've broken out in zits - is this normal, like my body getting rid of toxins?
