I recently saw on t.v. that the whole 8 glasses of water a day is a myth. They can't figure out where it started but apparently completely untrue. The scientists where saying that we get plenty of fluid in a healthy diet and don't really drink unless we are thirsty. They said you do need to drink more when you exercise or when its hot out. They even said.that even drinks.with.caffeine give your body fluids...

Now, that being said, it does fill you up and can be used to help with dieting...

Some drinks are diuretic like coffee, tea, and alcohol so they actually make you lose fluids. They're called "negative water" in my diet book. I can say one thing about drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day; I've never had smoother, clearer skin in my life! I'm sort of floored. It's convinced me that I need to keep doing this.

I've heard that too, anna, but I am experimenting; also not eating 3 hours before bed, and working out at level 7 every day for 35 minutes.
I rarely drink, anyway so its not a lifestyle change, but I'm not doing alcohol either.
*off to fill the giant water cup.

Doing terrible today and likely to be just as bad for the next 3 weeks. Working two jobs is really throwing everything off.

I read the water thing as well. Somedays I do well drinking 8 glasses and others like today not so much.
