It's good to drink a lot of water.. for numerous reasons.. There are the recommended 8 glasses of water..
i was just wondering how much water you drink a day.. all you ppl that workout regularly?

i drink 4 Nalgene bottles worth of water a day.. 32 oz each nalgene bottle..
and i pee like crazy.. i do this to suppress my night hunger and my mid afternoon hunger... plus i dont drink juices or pop.. so this is the only thing i drink..

When I go to class, I carry around a gallon jug with me. I usually drink one and a half of those. Otherwise, I have a big thermal mug I walk around the house with that I drink out of all day. I drink at least a gallon a day, not counting what I get from food sources.

Lol, sorry, but the mental image of someone carting around a gallon jug of water to classes reminds me of some of the ridiculous food/drink related things I did and saw over the years.

I do actually get a lot of smartass comments about it. It doesn't bother me though, since I know I will crush them in their sleep.

I can't seem to get up to a gallon of water. A few days i have got 15 cups in, but went about 17-18 times, and don't want to overdose. How do you all take it going ever 25 minutes?

1 to 2 gallons. After the morning pee, the first one is usually around 10am, then noon, then I CAN go every half hour (but can hold it for an hour).

Some days when im consciously thinking about drinking water, I would just have glass after glass after glass. It's nice and all, but I think I have a really small bladder... or maybe I damaged it while i was young holding my pee in.. so occasionally, i need to pee every 12~15 minutes. I don't think it's too good for me. So that reminds me, anyone have tips to increase bladder.. health/size?

yea i go pee every 15 minutes after like 64 ounces in an hour..

If anything i think peeing more often(within reason) would lead to a healthier bladder.

Maybe a few glasses a day. I drink a lot more when I'm dieting and that's because I have a lot more room in my stomach then;)

today I drank somewhere near 30 glasses. You can drink too much water. It will give you head pressure. I think I drank too much today.

I take my body weight and divide that in half. Then I take that number and drink it in fluid ounces

I can only drink 16 ozs every 2-3 hours. Otherwise I have to go every 15-20 mins. I can hold it for 30. If I go any longer it starts to hurt.

I drink about 20-30 ounces in the morning while at the gym...maybe a couple of big gulps throughout the day...but I mainly drink Gatoraide. I drink about 4 20oz bottles a day. That is all I drink, maybe a glass of tea once everyother day or so...

I think "the amount" is overated... do you need to drink plenty of water when your taking in lot's of protein and working out... YES do you need to drink over a gallon a day... NO...

I think there's an article on this site which suggested you should urinate clear 5x/day.

I usually drink 5-6 16.9 ounces bottles of water a day. I also usually have a cup of coffee or two before noon. With all that water, and all that coffee I only usually pee maybe 5 times in a day, and I don't drink much of anything else, ever. I find that I pee really frequently after vegetable soup. That absolutely wears me out. I guess it's all the water in the veggies, but it doesn't seem like there's more in that than in a good day of water-drinking.

And I'm sure I can find 3 articles to prove you wrong then you can find 3 to prove me wrong... :)

I think alot of ppl just complicate things for no reason...

and just for the record, i'm not saying you don't need to drink alot, I'm just saying alot of ppl go overboard just for the sake of doing it...
