"Doing more exercise with less intensity,"
Arthur Jones believes, "has all but
destroyed the actual great value
of weight training. Something
must be done . . . and quickly."
The New Bodybuilding for
Old-School Results supplies
MUCH of that "something."

I have a couple friends at work that started drinking a gallon of water per day and have experienced positive reactions i.e. no headaches, weight loss, more energy, no desire to drink anything else
I also read the superhydration article on this website....and I can't believe that I have been so dehydrated by following the medical journals recommendation of 6-8 glasses/day

I am gonna start the gallon per day challenge, have any of you folks tried this and can you provide guidance or suggestions on how to drink a gallon of water per day

thanks in advance

I drink about 8 glasses a day. One thing my doctors made sure to let me know after my partial neph was that kidneys love water. I also feel it aids in reducing hunger.

I don't know how much water I drink but it's way more than I used to. It especially helps going number 2 when I drink a glass right before bed and a glass just after getting up. I have to go pretty quickly and it's pretty soft.

I have one of the 32 ounce Yeti cups. I just make sure I fill and drink it 4x a day to get my gallon of water. Most days I get up to a gallon and a half or so. I've done that so long at this point it's just habit.

For as long as I can remember, I've gotten a minimum of 3 liters a day. And I definitely notice that I don't feel as energetic when i don't have my water with me. At home, work , in the car I always have water.

Never been a big water drinker and never had no issues in the form of headaches, lack of energy etc. Imo drinking large arbitrary amounts of water is not only wasteful but also completely unnecessary and calls for certain organs to workmharder.The human thirst mechanism works perfectly fine.

Well maybe and maybe not. A short while ago I got sick and was constantly throwing up. By the time I got to the doctor,a few days later, I was about through throwing up but I went anyway. While at the doctor they said I was severely dehydrated. By that time I was feeling fine and wondered what they were talking about. I had no desire for more liquids but they put me on an IV for two days in the hospital.I had no idea I was dehydrated. I felt better later but I think it was mostly because I got to lay around and do nothing for two days, ha ha.

Good to hear your well Scott, when working in a local hospital, i heard of cases like yours, i also heard about cases were members of the public were in need of emergancy medical attention from water intoxication (mostly young).

What am saying above is, the gallon of water of day thing is kinda like the gram of protein per pound of bodyweight recommendation thats been floating around for years, it comes from nowhere and is certainly not one size fits all.
