1.5L of water equals how many glasses?

Postby HappyBella55 » Wed Sep 12, 2007 10:27 am

Ok here's another question about calorie king :D

I am aiming to drink 1.5L of water a day.

I'm just wondering how many glasses of water that equates to on CK?

I'm drinking the water straight from the bottle and I'm thinking 6 glasses- would that be a good estimate?

8 glasses of water a day is 2L.

so 6 glasses would be 1.5L.

Thanks guys.

I don't think I could stomach more than 1.5L - I was running to the toilet every 5 minutes yesterday :shock: :shock: :shock:

Rach - take gradual steps with the water (like me) 1.5L is better than drinking none at all. Thanks for your tip it works a treat: out of sight out of mind, in sight in mind lol :P

I do around 1500ml I think... 2 bottles of gatorade worth of water + a glass when I brush my teeth in the morning and night. Plus tea and coffee... but that's not really water is it.

Just think, when you are upping your water and it seems like you are in the loo every 5 mins, every time you go its flushing fat cells and toxins and all sorts of other nasties out!

Drinking water is just like eating food; too little and your body starts to retain what it can as a protective measure.

If you haven't been drinking enough for quite a while, once you start you will flush out more than you are drinking as your body becomes assured there is a good supply of water to hand - so yes, you will go every 5 minutes. But it will settle down once you flush out the excess fluid you've been holding, along with all those nasties!
