I cannot drink enough water to keep myself hydrated. Does anyone have an idea to help me drink more water. I was told I need to drink half of my body weight. So that means I need to drink 195 ounces a day. Which would be three 2 liter bottles. Is that right?

lol,.yes it sounds about right.

Keep it in perspective though as much of our water intake comes from the food we eat;)

oh and that's in a perfect world,...

most of us probably walk around in a state of mild dehydration day-in and day-out.

My nutritionist said 8 - 8oz glasses of fluid a day .... 64 ozs. Obviously if you have a physical job or your workouts are vigorous you will need more. There is such a thing as drinking too much water. When your kidneys are unable to excrete the excess fluid it is called water intoxication and it can kill you. When exercising of course you need more water .. depending how much you sweat during the exercise .. to replace water lost. You should drink water before, during and after exercise. And you also get fluids from the food you eat so 195 ounces of water a day seems to be too much. I drink Fruit-2-O flavored water .. or Crystal light .. to help me get enough fluid if just drinking plain water doesn't do it for me.

The chances of you developing water intoxication is extraordinarily low, and only occurs when you take in so much fluid in such a short period of time that the electrolytes in your body are diluted too much. The 1/2 your body weight in oz in a good reference to go by, but if you are quite heavy due to excessive weight it will be next to impossible to drink that much easily. So take it with a grain of salt. Aiming for around a gallon over the course of a day (two - 2 liters) is a pretty reasonable goal if the other amount is overwhelming. I know my 200lb husband easily drinks that much every day at a mostly desk job.
