I drink atleast 5 litres of water a day. I have heard that Doctors all over the world say it is very important to drink lots of water as it is very good for the body. But does drinking water really makes a difference for a healthy body?

Yes it does. but I thought 2 litres of water per day is more than enough for your body. I drink 2,5 litres per day. How could you drink 5 litres of water per day? I could not imagine. You must often go to toilet, dont you? anyway, it is good for your body

I dink on an average about 5 litres a day. It is true bcos i my job involves working on the computer and meeting deadlines is a really tiring and strenous. Also as you said drinking water does lead me to the toilet very often, that part is really bugging, but again after i return from the toilet i feel really fresh again, so i guess water does help, right?

hmmmm..considering the fact that you drink 9 300ml glasses of water a day, then that is too less..maybe u gotta try some larger glasses and drink upto 18 glasses a day, now that would be good start ... all the best dude!

I drink a miminum of one litre a day - usually around one and a half - going up to two in summer. If I don't drink as much I am likely to get a migraine the following day and leg and body cramps during the night.

I have made an effort over the past 2 months to drink at least 6-8 8 ounce glasses a day. I can honestly say that the biggest change I have seen is in my skin. My skin was so itchy and dry before and now it is soft and supple and no longer itches. Of course, I also spend a bit more time in the restroom, but for me, that is no problem to be rid of the itchy skin!

I think drinking at least 8 glasses of water everyday is sufficient enough. If you are exercising, increase the intake to 12 glasses. If in a hot weather, 12 glasses. It actually depends on the temperature. The hotter the weather, the more you take, the colder, the less you take. The reason for this is, you sweat more on hotter weather than in cold. Drinking water is good for the body as it helps assists the liver and kidney to expel toxic waste from our body, so it doesn't strain that much in taking out wastes from our body.

I drink about 2-3 litres of water everyday. It is good for your health do drink as much water as you can, but don't drink too much because you will have to go to the toilet very often :)).

Yeah you are right. I have also heard the same and I am also conscious about it. I feel difficult to drink 5litres a day. If it is hot weather then I can manage 3 litres otherwise 1.5litres.

I am not so sure about 5 litres of water daily.Earlier I was having as much or rather trying to drink as much as possible.Later I realized that my stomache looked bloated all the time.Then I read in some health book that too much water may not suit everybody, and their bodies may swell like rice grains swell after imbibing water. Now I feel, experience what is best for your body.If you feel good with a lot of water intake then go ahead, but if less intake is ok with you, then dont simply monkey the other guys.
