Pretty sure the entire world of athletes would disagree with ya there
Not really surprising..
Those would be athletes, doing athletic things and actually using the carbs and sugar to covert to energy
For most of us they are nothing but empty calories just like soda.
Sports drinks do help, but like said if you are sweating profusely and then it's usually for days on end where the electrolites get flushed out... I've done it a couple of times that resulted in a docotr visit, and it's from drinking 2 gallons of water a day and still coming home 6-8lbs lighter than when you left for work for extended days... After about 2 weeks of that if your diet isn't tailored around your needs you can what I call "outwork" the water but it takes alot...
Also, coming from a good friend/ dentist who refuses to drink them says that there isn't a worst drink on the shelf for your teeth.. The combination of sugars and acid takes enamel off like no tomorrow.. lLet's not get into kidney stones either...
You know, I keep wanting to calculate it but always get too busy. I have a 24oz Camelbak bottle that I refill several times a day. I drink two pots of tea a day, also, so I'd imagine it's pretty high.
I echo the thoughts of the other guy who works from home. People thought I was a freak in the office - but those guys literally downed four diet cokes before lunch. Yuck!
But his post was about exerting yourself and such
That's interesting. I can't stand it either. Has to be in some other form. Thought I was odd about water.
I drink when I am thirsty. I eat when I am hungry.
I try to make sure I am properly hydrated when I am outside during the summer. The rest of the time, only if I feel the need for a drink.
I have read people can mistake thirst for hunger. They will eat when it is not necessary.
I used to be the same way. Now, I usually drink either water or iced tea plain, nothing added. I need my caffeine. I cant stand coffee.
Coffee is mostly water, soda is mostly water, beer is mostly water, many fruits and vegetables are mostly water, as are most soups, sauces, etc. There is some water in most of what we eat. The "8 glasses of water per day" suggestion that has been widely touted is generally taken too literally.
I probably drink 4-6 liters a day.
I despise water, hate it.
What I do is I have a 2 liter mug I fill with ice and diet soda as the ice melts it get my water flavored with diet soda.
Haven't drank water in years
I know more than a couple people who don't drink plain water
i will not drink water...fish crap in it.
Some of you are ingesting a lot of fluoride.
Um, you know democrats fart in your air, right?
Lets see.... roughly 4 - 8 twelve ouncers a week. Hops and barley included.
This is actually true...
remember...your bottled water, was once your neighbor's urine.
On days I exercise 4-5 litres/day
On days I don't 3.
So usually 4.
If I have a soda I'll spend an extra ten cents and get a natural soda or a mineral water and some juice. I've used coke to remove oil stains off of a garage floor....so it's not really something I want in my stomach.
Depending on how much you sweat and your activity level you shouldn't need more than 3-4 litres a day......or about a gallon a day.
It might be hard, but avoid sodium. Everything in western diets has so much effing sodium in it I'm surprised more people aren't having heart attacks at 30.
