View Full Version : Stupid Water Question

06-26-2002, 11:01 AM
I regularly drink about 2 gallons of water a day with no problem. I take creatine and Xenedrine and am making sure to keep extra hydrated. I definitely carry a bit of water weight. I was wondering if I cut down will I look more cut? Going to the beach this weekend and trying to look my best. Anybody have any suggestions? My bf is around 10%

I would think twice about cutting out the water too much. Keep it at 1 gal/day at least.

Yeah, I doubt the water weight you are carrying actually makes that much of a difference. I am sure you look fine where you are;) Keep your fluids up even more if you are going to the beach:)

If you are truly at 10% you should look very good. If you don't think you look good - my guess is you underestimate yourself (or your bodyfat).

Thats what I was thinking.

That was before I quit smoking; it's not much more than that though. Maybe 12%. I am 6'5, 218.

How are your sodium levels on a day to day basis?

I don't use salt and the only canned food I eat is Tuna. Keep it low.

water is one of the very few things where you can go nuts and nothing will go wrong, i dont care what you're doing lots of water will only help,(as long as you can pee whenever you have too :))

drinking more water makes you retain less
