They say that a person should drink 8 glasses of water in a day...For me I can't even consume a glass of water...tsk.tsk.tsk...bad girl right?Well it's weird but I just don't like the taste of water.I drink water but I can't finish a glass of it.Most of the time I drink tea and coke..I know it will be bad for my health and I know the benefits of drinking water and what it can do for the body.My boyfriend will actually hand me the glass so that I can drink water because he knows that i will not even get one.Id rather drink coke and iced tea.

First of all go easy on the coke.Ice tea's fine as long it is natural.Also green tea helps a lot.I drink 8-10 glasses of water daily.Drink a full glass of water as soon as you get up.It keeps you healthy and also can reduce weight a lot.If you cant drink a full glass try taking half glass at half the time intervals...!!!

Unfortunately i am not into drinking 8 glasses of water also.I prefer drinking juices....different fruit juices.But i am trying to at least drink 2 or 3 glasses of water in a day.I hope i'd be able to do that....drinking 8 glasses of water as it really is healthy for your skin also.

Before during our lunch time at the office..I drink green mango shake..I love it so much..Sometimes I mix green mango with apple and orange.Love the taste...Never tried any other fruits...but it costs me a lot for a shake...so I'd go for iced tea...bottle iced tea that is.

I would say that I can drink almost 12-14 glasses in a day. I do this coz once I had a problem of UTI(urinary tract infection) and the doctor adviced me to drink a lot of water. From then on I made it a point that I should drink as much water as possible. Another thing that I like to drink is the watermelon juice but that is seasonal.

Hi my friend, I, like you, have heard you should drink 8 glasses of water a day. I have trouble drinking straight water too. I usually drink a lot of Sprite Zero, Diet Pepsi Max and Diet Cranberry juice. I always have to have a drink right beside me. I think you are one better than me though, because tea is made up mostly of water :D Have a good evening, Char :-)

I think the definition of 8 glasses of water dosen't mean its literal meaning, it's just give us the quantity of water we should have in a day, thus you may have this water in various ways. Tea or coffee is also a kind of water, so, taking them will also works.:-)

My doctor told me that drinking ice tea or coffee or coke will be bad for me or to anybody else.It's different if you will just drink water.I had urinary track infection before and it requires me to drink a lot of water.no caffenated drinks...even iced tea.

Im always trying to have atleast 8 glasses of water a day. It really soothes me and refresh my body. If i dont drink water for an hour then i feel dry. I love water so much so everytime im thirsty i prefer to drink water than drinking softdrinks. It is good for our health cause it oxidize our system and flush out unwanted wastes on our body. To perspire is also important cause this our fats that are dissolved and serves as waste in our system.
