    Default How much water do u drink?

    Per day? Im wondering because at work I drink from a 1litre bottle and refil it twice or 1 and half times throughout the shift and I notice my colleagues are only drinking coffee..
    If I don't drink water I will get a headache big time and also prob a urine infection.

    Just dont get how some people can get on without drinking water..
    So do u drink much? Do u suffer like me if you dont?

    I get headachy also if I don't drink enough water. I have a 'pump' water bottle on my desk and probably fill that up 2-3 times

    Not enough. I find I too get really bad headaches by the afternoon if I haven't made an effort. I live off tea usually and forget to drink from my water bottle, and feel like crap later.

    I try to drink about 2L, but I go more off the colour of my urine (tmi) rather than measuring

    If I don't drink enough I find I'm tired and yes get headaches.

    I probably end up drinking 1 - 1.5L per day. I drink more in summer, obviously as it's hotter. I find that I just don't need more than about 1 litre in winter, drinking too much if I'm not thirsty just gives me a crook gut so I prefer to sip from my water bottle which is on my desk.

    2+ litres. I've always got a bottle of water on the go. If I don't drink at least 1.5L I feel really tired/drained.

    I don't know how others can get by on tea/coffee/soft drink and no water. I know I just couldn't do it but I guess it's whatever you're used to.

    Probably 2 litres a day on average, a bit more in summer.

    Well what a great thread! Being an ex hairdresser I lived off coffee all day! There were days where I didn't even touch water which I noticed was not very good for me. With the odd coke zero it was coffee all day for me.
    I've just started a soft drink/ any drink besides water diet. I'm on day 5 and feel pretty good. I have my coffe in the morning and short black in the afternoon but other than that I drink water. As a case of how much I couldn't tell you but I'll guess by saying no more than 1 litre a day. It's not enough but I do get a sore belly if I drink too much,
    I have to add that I thought I would feel a lot better than I do but I don't feel too much of a difference. But it's only day 5 and I'm determined to keep going.
    (Sorry lots of inadequate info just thought I add my 5 cents 😝😝😝)
