why do you drink that many or not any? well i try to drink alot of water but it just doesn't happen. sometimes water is the best thing in the world to me. but other times it just tastes weird and flavor less and just doesn't do anything for me except make me hungry. so i only drink 1 glass of water a day or none. i think thats really sad but its true. right now i'm drinking half of cup of water because we ran out of koolid this morning my mom hasn't been to the store in like a week. so time for water this time it tastes good because i'm eating it with cake. yum. so how many glasses of water do you drink a day?

I used to really count up to eight everyday, but I must admit that lately I've been slacking off and I probably just drink about 6, though I also drink juice. Eight glasses is what's recommended, but I am honestly not sure whether this pertains only to water or you can add juices and other liquids to the count. As for me, I only count the glasses of water I drink. I used to not drink water very much, until I had this scare. My grandmother had kidney disease and my mom is really concerned about how I drank so little water. Once, I kept getting UTI, and I would feel like I need to pee, but then I can't. My mom had my urine checked and there was a trace of some kind of protein that shouldn't be there. My mom got scared and made me drink 1 glass every hour for a few days LOL! After that incident, I made sure to really drink 8 glasses a day!

I actually drink a lot of water in the day. I drink between 8 and 12 8 oz glasses of water a day. First off, because it is good for me. Secondly, because I want to lose weight and drinking water helps keep me full. I totally understand what you are saying about water sometimes tasting strange though. We noticed that our local water tastes like chlorine a lot of the time so we got a Brita pitcher and we now filter all of the water that we drink and it always tastes good to me now.

I'm not sure how many glasses of water i drink in a day. Everyday i always drink 1 bottle of 1.5 litres mineral water from the bottle directly. And i also drink many cup of tea in a day. As i can remember, i can drink up to 8 cup of tea in a day. Especially when i eat spicy or hot food, i will drink more and more water. We know that drinking enough water in a day is good for our health. But sometimes, even though we know it, we have no time to drink enough water in a day. Usually it's because of our business. Have a nice day and happy mylotting.
