I would say 90% of my days I fall between 1-2 gallons. Most training days are closer to 2 gallons.

11-06-2001, 11:49 PM
Hm.. ~1-1,5gallons.(~4-6L)

11-07-2001, 06:38 AM
I usually drink a little over a gallon at work. And than on training days I'll drink another half a gallon or more.

what does 3 liters equal?

11-07-2001, 07:33 AM
0.75 galons
1 gallon=4 liters

Probably about a gallon. I down 2 quarts at work, then another one in the gym, and yet another one during whatever time I'm at home. I keep a quart water bottle around so I can always grab it... I have one at home, at work, and I keep one in the Jeep and take that into the gym or wherever I go.

several gallons i down a good gallon during and before my workouts.

How much importance does the amount of water you drink make? I never really drink water. I always drink milk when I'm thirsty or not. It has calories and water doesn't. Thats how I look at it. Why drink something that won't make me gain weight when I can drink something that will?

11-07-2001, 08:24 PM
1 gallon=3.75 liters

11-07-2001, 10:05 PM
umm, water cleans your system and hydrates you. Plus, I'm damn sure you can consume more water than you can milk. Try 3 times as much actually.

11-07-2001, 10:47 PM
Yeah If i drink more than 24 oz of milk per day my ass explodes.

Hey buddy you can go weeks without eating but I believe it's something like 3 days before you die if you don't drink water. I know I wouldn't like to find that out myself though...:eek:

uh...there are plenty of sources of water though...not just tap or bottled, so if you are drinking juice, pop, etc you have to factor in that it's mostly water also...so I don't think you'd die if you went without drinking straight H2O.

Well you said you can drink 3 times as much water as milk. I drink in between half a gallon and a gallon a day of milk. Most of the time I drink about a gallon. So you're saying if i wanted I could drink 3 gallons of water a day?

11-09-2001, 12:20 AM
Usually I drink 3 liters while working out, sometimes 4.

During the rest of teh day usually another 3 liters, so about 6-7 liters a day on average.

ironman15, you must be getting between 1700-2000 calories a day just from milk, what is you total daily caloric intake.

11-13-2001, 07:18 PM
well a lot depends on what type of milk it is. I usually drink 2 percent so each 8 oz. has like 120 calories. So you figure 16 times 120 is 1920. And thats if I drink a whole gallon, usually my total calorie intake from milk is about 1300-1400. My total calorie intake during the day is usually between 3500-4000 as of the past couple of weeks.

do you not feel like a bloated elephant?

11-18-2001, 09:33 PM
Sometimes I feel bloated but its worth it.
