The Eight Glasses a Day Myth.

While not mentioned on this report, there are situations where not drinking water (or drinking only when one is thirsty) could lead to problems. One of these is when one is losing weight at a fairly rapid pace, crystals known as ketones build in the kidneys. From what I have read in the past, drinking lots of water washes away the ketones and prevents a condition called ketosis which could potentially damage one's kidneys. My guess is that there are other parallels. I feel that water washes away impurities in general and will continue to drink large quantities of it, especially on low calorie days or fasts. After a while, we'll get a new report saying that water is good after all. Very Happy

I would count flavored water but I'm not an expert (unless theres sodium in the drink like in some bubbly water). I also read in an article that green tea or herbal teas also counts as part of "daily intake" of water.

Well you have to drink something, and it's got to be better than sodas, coffee, and (sorry) alcohol! Milk in small doses, but come on! We're better off than we were ten years ago when we all lived on diet sodas.

I agree with Girl_llla. I also know that some people don't get as thirsty as others and the climate we live in plays a huge role among our activity levels and health conditions. My son, my own flesh and blood could go most day on very minimal water. Me and my mother on the other hand, we drink lots of water all day long, always have!
I think it's just like everything else...you have to really listen to your body and know what YOUR body needs. I believe my son is just fine not drinking as much water as me. He's much healthier than I am by all means! (little stinker)
