I have noticed in the past few days that i do not finish just one bottle of water i take to college everyday now in chilling winter, even though i take good amount of water in summer. I don't feel like being thirst now in winter often. And i hate chilling winter's, i like summer's better. What do you think? Do you feel thirsty? If you feel thirsty, please drink water before you respond. :-) Bye.

I used to follow that wisdom, but the problem is that I have gotten bigger, stronger, and more active, not to mention heavier, so my consumption actually increased over the winter. for example, last summer, I was drinking 2 gallons of water a day on average, but now, I am drinking that much when it is freezing cold. I catch the bus, and lately, when the temperature has been in the single digits, I was drinking a gallon of water at the bus stop. I like that my consumption rate is freakish to other people, and how I could drink a gallon of water before a average person could drink a water bottle. My water bottle is a gallon jug. this summer, I would probably go through 3 gallons on average. I am going to cause a drought because I have to hydrate muscles.

hi, yeah you're right that we oftenly drink water in winter, maybe because the weather is cold, so less water in our body could be used. we dont sweat to much in winter.

Her body was found in her home shortly after she took part in a water-drinking contest that was sponsored by a local radio show. Entitled "Hold Your Wee For A Wii," the contest promoters promised a free Wii video game machine to the contestant who drank the most water without urinating.Whenever you disregard your sense of thirst and strive to ingest several glasses of water a day just because you have been told that doing so is good for your health,you actually put unnecessary strain on your body in two major ways.

Hello ritwick, Yes, i have observed the same. I guess our body pores release more water in the summers when it is hot and that is why we drink more in the summers. However it is best if we keep drinking nice amounts of water in the winter too. The only problem is that you would need to attend the toilet more often. he he. Yeah, same thing about being thirsty, i don't feel that thirsty in winters. Well, i guess i can have a glass of water now!

Yes, its true, i also drink less water in winter because of coldness, and less thirst, but we must eat winter fruits like oranges to recover or water level in the body and also drink hot drinks and soups to maintain water level in our body.

Indeed, winter because is cold we do not feel the need to drink the same amount of water that we drink in the summer, but because the body needs moisture in winter like summer,water is best to replace the more tepid tea.Have a nice day!

I went for a walk after getting up this morning. I must have been out there for an hour or so. After i came back in, i did drink a little bit of water. Probably about 6 ouches. If it were warming, i would have chugged 16 or more ouches for sure. My heart rate went up, but because of the temperature, i didn't sweat. That's probably a big factor into how much water you want to take in. Cold water brings your body temperature down anyway...So, naturally our hot cocoa intake would likely increase during the winter months.

It is understandable what you are saying. After all we think of water and as cool and refreshing, and in the summer time that is a wonderful thing but in the winter time that last thing we want to think about is more cold. I stay indoors a lot so I am drinking about the same, I drink Crystal Light usually though instead of just plain water, except after a work out then I will usually have 2 good sized glasses of plain water.

I usually drink less water in winter because in the summer when it is really hot I drink a lot of water,but my thirst also depends on what I eat,because there are some meals which make me thirsty.Anyway,I know how important it is for health to drink water every day and I try to do that,but there is undoubtedly a difference of quantity between summer and winter,at least in my case.

I drink just as much water in the winter, if not more. I have the same amount of thirst as any other time. I think many people just tend to do it less often because they are cold.
