I've read that you should try to get some of your water by drinking it and some by consuming it through foods that are high in water content, like vegetables or watermelon. In my own experience, when I consume more water I feel better and lose a bit of weight. When I have days that I forget to drink it as often I feel bloated and my jeans are tighter.

im terrible at drinking water. ive just never been a big fan of it at all. this is my first goal, to drink water. maybe not whats required but to just be drinking it everyday. drinking water is substantial to losing weight because it flushes your system of toxins and curbs your appetite. sometimes what we perceive as hunger pains most likely is from being dehydrated. recently i read also tho that drinking large amounts of water during a meal is NOT recommended. that all it does is dilute our food of all its nutrients and causing our systems to pass it faster rather than absorbing all its goodness. not sure where i read that but it made perfect sense to me. a glass of water before a meal the article stated was fine tho.
