How much H2O do you drink?
« on: November 28, 2006, 02:20:37 PM »

Just curious.

Personally, I try to drink a base of two liters per day. Then I drink an additional ml of H2O for every ml of anything else I drink (coffee, diet coke, bourbon, etc.) I also drink at least 1 additional liter on my workout days (3-4 x per week). By days end it's not uncommon for me to drink 3.5-4 liters of H2O. And yes, I make a lot of trips to the bathroom/restroom.

Good post.

I made the decision 2 years ago, that I was not drinking near enogh water.
(the math might be tough for me)
I drink coffee in the morning, I would say a lot.
Then I switch to water after lunch. (no pop/soda)  I have a 700 ml bottle, and average about 5 by the time I get home.

Then, of course I switch to beer, so I'm not sure how that figures in.

I drink as much water as I can, but i know I could always mix in more.

I'd guess two litres a day.  I drink from cups so it's hard to say for sure. 

Then... I drink an *awful* lot of iced tea.  Does that count?  Seriously.

Only if its unsweetened decaf.  Disgusted

Unsweetened - yes
Decaf - no

Half count?

I know caffeine is a diuretic but it's a weak one.  Does it completely nullify the water intake or somehow make it count for less?  Just tryin' to understand.   Huh?

No I don't think the caffeine completely nullifies the water, and frankly the sweetener (artificial or otherwise) and carbonation in soda is far worse for you. Quite honestly I don't know why I feel like I need to counter every cup of coffee with an equivalent amount of water. Probably over compensation. No worries, though, I have plenty of sodium in my diet.  Wink

Within sane limits, over compensation isn't a bad thing.  It's pretty tough to get too much water unless you do it all at once.  I'd say your plan is rock solid.

As much as possible. At the right temperature, water is my favourite drink.
