Hi all
How can I get my daily amount of water without having to drink it just as it is?
Is it true that coffee and tea doesn?t count?
I know I am blessed to be able to have access to pure drinking water (even though I need to buy it) but I want to start looking at my health and would like to drink more.

Thanks
J

I drink a lot of water. It helps to carry it with you at all times. Eventually you will be just sip it without realizing it.

I don't like the taste (is there even one?) of water so I add some squash to mine. I've been told that this counts

1. Put it in a cup.
2. Raise to lips.
3. Swallow.

That's what I was going to suggest. I rarely go out without bringing my water bottle with me. If I have it with me at all times I'm more likely to drink it even if I'm not thirsty.

They have proven scientifically that you don't need to drink pure water, as you can get the water through any drink including coffee, tea etc plus you gain fluid within fuood. Yes it is true that coffee and tea act as diuretics (sp?) but that would only come into effect over many many gallons.

They tested water drinkers against none water drinkers, they both took in the same volume of liquid and both peed out the same healthy amount.

I don't have a link cos it was a documentary I watched on tv.

i drink alot of water
that is all i drink well that is untill i pick up the
crown royal bottal or tequilla but you need to atleast drink a gallon of water per day
i was in this program once for a health situation and i was allready drinking water but now i drink more
i learned alot there to like if you leave your bottle of water in your car for the day and your just sipping on it as you get in and out like when you go to work then 8 hours later theres still water in the bottle if the car is left in the sun the plastic will cotaminate the water and you will not want to drink the water it leads to some kind of cancer cells docs have proven the safest way to drink water is out of a stainless steel or alluminum bottle
the same is said for warming up food in the microwave do not warm up in plastic containers it will ccotaminate your food i hope this helps on the water subject try it with a squeeze of lemon or lime

Carry it with you at all times.
Also, crystal light works well too. And now they have those lil sticks of flavor that you can add to your water. I have no proof, but it seems to me coffe/tea would not be the same as 'straight' water, kwim? If I have water with me (regardless of conainer) I'll drink that, rather then stopping to buy something which
ends up going to waste. So carrying water with you at all times keeps you healthier and saves money that you would spend on other beverages.
