    Default How much do u drink?

    Ok so as the title says: how much do you drink in a day?

    I'm not referring to alcohol, just water, juice, tea, coffee etc. do u drink the recommended 2 litres?

    The reason I'm asking is coz I've never really been a big drinker, but lately I have not been drinking or thirsty AT ALL

    My diet hasn't changed, I'm not eating any more 'juicy' stuff, but I have realized for the past few weeks I have drunk 1-2 small glasses of liquid per day... Some days half a glass...

    I am NEVER thirsty... (well hardly ever) and when I drink, it's only because I've realized I need to and I force it down.

    Anyone else have this?

    DS takes up all my brain, my main focus is him and his needs and often I don't think of my own needs. I eat, but just never get round to pouring that glass of water for myself. I always forget. I wish I was thirsty so I could remember...

    I would drink around 3-5 liters of water plus 2-3 cups of tea and maybe 1 diet soft drink

    I drink over 2 litres a day of water. I'm always thirsty, my kids prob drink 3-5 cups of drink a day. Depending on how they feel. I can't make them drink more. They always have it where they can reach it and if they run out they ask for more

    I don't think they recommend 2 litres a day anymore but can't remember where I read that.
    I have two cups of coffee a day, quite a lot of water at work and a glass of chardy when cooking (probably shouldn't count that lol).

    Could it be coz I've recently stopped breastfeeding? Maybe my body think because I'm not lactating that I don't need as much fluid? Maybe my body needs to adjust?

    I drink about 1-3L of bottled/filtered water a day. I'm always thirsty and I never exercise and sit at a desk in an office for work. I also make sure there is water by my bed at night because I tend to wake up from thirst, have a drink and go back to sleep. I quit drinking coffee in February and I quit chai latte and green tea as soon as I found out I was pregnant.

    Edit: I also have milk in the morning with cereal. Sometimes another cup of milk later on during the day. I do not drink soda and rarely drink juice/cordial.

    I drink over 2litres of water a day easily, probably closer to 4litres. Also 2 cups of coffee/tea. I rarely ever drink soft drink, juice or cordial but I do add fresh lemon juice to my water in the morning.

    I have the opposite problem, I usually have a drink nearby but I have to force myself to eat more then once a day (not so much a problem since I've been pregnant, my appetite increased and I am eating three meals and a snack or two every day ).
    I wouldn't worry too much unless you find yourself becoming dehydrated (parched lips, dry skin, headaches, tiredness, etc). Maybe try to set up a routine, so have a glass of water, juice, or whatever you like with every meal. It might also help to leave a small glass on the sink, get in the habit of having a glass of water when you are in the kitchen
