Another good way to calculate how much water you should drink a day is this: Drink 1/2 your body weight in fluid ounces of water daily. So for me it's 73 oz. But....if you exercise you should drink more....for every 10 minutes of physical activity you should have an 8 oz. glass of water. I do this every day and if I don't I feel like crap. It completely flushes me out. I honestly used to hate drinking water and I forced myself to do it, because what is bad about water??? NOTHING! So now I'm addicted....it's my beverage of choice. And amomono ... the peeing problem should subside. Of course you go to the bathroom but I've found that I don't have to literally run to the bathroom after a while. Your body adjusts to it. In the beginning you will feel like you're a peeing machine but only because your body wants to flush all the bad stuff out as fast as it can. Drink up everyone!

This is an awesome post! All I drink is water! I don't know if even I can get my water intake up that high though. We'll see! lol

a sticky is one that will always be at the top of the particular forum. I ensures that anyone browsing this forum "Weight Loss Through Exercise" will see this great post.

does it have to be plain water, or will any liquid (calorie free) do the trick????

of course there are 2 sides to every story. you should always consult with your doctor first to help decide what amount of water is right for you. obviously, everything printed on the internet cant be true and i think we all know this.
as for me, water DID help me to lose the weight that i have lost so far. and contrary to the article sungod posted, i find it does curb my appetite. i have also noticed my skin is not as lumpy (cellulite, lol) in some areas. i think the article depicted water as a money making scam in some sentences. and as long as you dont overdo it, i feel the benefits of water far outweigh some of the negatives - if there are any.

So how much more if your exercising?
Does your body get used to drinking more water and you don't pee as much?

I don't really pay attention to how much water I'm drinking I just go by the rule that I drink enough so I'm never thirsty. I just can't imagine trying to drink so many ounces so I don't concern myself with them and it seems like I'm drinking something all the time. Like if I go for like ten minutes with out a drink my mouth becomes really dry and I immediately go find something to drink. It's nice to know that I'm actually doing something that is on the right track.
