I told SO I was going to try and drink more water, maybe closer to the recommended amount and less caffeinated drinks. His response was that drinking 8 cups a day is a myth and that if I drink too much water I'll drown, because my body is already made up mostly of water. :roll:

You won't drown from drinking 8 glasses of water a day.



But I read somewhere that they don't make it a 'recommendation" any more because if we eat proper balanced meals we get enough water from our food. Anything else would just be extra.

I've been drinking a gallon a day for the past few weeks. You can get sick from over hydrating, but everyone has different limits.

Well, it is true that bad things happen if you drink too much water. But your body IS made up mostly of water, how does he think it stays that way if you aren't putting any water in? :lol:

Ya, I read it's now based on food intake and weight.



In the summer I cannot stop eating watermelons, so I can't even manage to drink water aha
