I started this act of calculating my water intake quite a few months before and noticed immediate effects of regularly drinking it on my overall health. The appearance of acne drastically reduced, my headaches went on a vacation, and alcohol cravings came down.

The most effective result was that my hair became less brittle. I used to wake up in the middle of nights with a sudden feeling of dehydration, so I decided to drink at least a glass full of water before sleeping so that my sleep isn’t hampered. Again a miracle, my pillow, which previously had broken hair on it in the morning, now has no trace of any hair strands. My hair became less brittle and I also witnessed less hair fall.

This question is still a mystery for all who are running behind facts and I can firmly say that because I have been a part of the same club for a long time. I kept asking and researching about the quantity of water to be consumed in a day and surprisingly received unique answers every time. 3 liters, 8 glasses, an ocean full, etc. were the answers I encountered.

Indifferent to all the information, I started monitoring my water intake to see the results. Swimming is one thing I have embraced to stay fit and healthy, so my morning routine always includes 1 glass of water, say 250ml. After an hour of exploring the underwater world in the pool, I drink one more glass of water to quench my thirst.

I have also discovered that my breakfast affects the amount of water I drink until the lunchtime. Eating fruits or drinking fruit juices leaves me satiated and I never look for water for almost 3 hours, resulting in less urination and also a yellowish one, indicating that I actually need to drink more water. As right as this could be, we never know the worth of water, until the well is dry! On the other hand, a breakfast full of bread and cooked food always leads me to the water dispenser frequently. Simultaneously, my loo trips increase too.
Irrespective of all this, I just make sure I drink water whenever I feel thirsty and surely agreeing to this, thousands have survived without love, but none without ‘water’!

Would love to know how you drink water for staying healthy!

I am on a detox diet for shedding some pounds as I am getting married in a year. I
got engaged 3 years ago and since then my fiancé and I have been staying together,
which leads to partying more than 3 times a week. Alcohol and junk food are the
chief guests of the parties and I am a beer lover. Every time we hangout or hang in, I
have a new brand of crate full of beers.
Being adventurous was taking a toll on my body. I started putting on weight like a
baby elephant and was no longer the hot babe my sweetheart gave his heart to  And
then… it was like I have to get back to my normal shape. I had to give up on hanging
out, partying, and drinking and eating junk that also included giving up on my fav
thing beer. So then I started going swimming, walking, gymming and what not. But
guess what, nothing came to my rescue and I just got frustrated.
The next stunt I did was then giving up on food, skipping meals, and ended up
feeling all the more weak.
A friend of mine, whom I cribbed about my failure told me over phone that I was not
doing the right thing. When I asked her what did she mean by that, she said go and
see a dietician and stop trying out stupid experiments.
Afetr a few phone calls and googling, I landed up with this dietician in my
neighborhood, who helped me identify the actual problem. To everyone’s surprise,
the greater problem in my case, was ‘water intake’. I had stopped consuming enough
water and this caused an accelerated weight gain. Water being made up of oxygen
and hydrogen only, fills up the stomach on consumption and leads to less hunger
trips. I patiently worked on all the points she had asked me to and within few days
started seeing results.
A simple rule I followed was to drink half a glass of water every hour. Not only did
drinking water help me in achieving weight loss goals, it also cleared the acne on my
face.
This is my ‘weight loss with water’ story. Hope it helps you, “Althea Balagtas”.

3 liters is what science keeps saying. However, I end up drinking like half of it.

There is no evidence on 3 liters. But you can always set the limit for yourself. I carry my own bottle, which accommodates 1 liter water and that way I know how much is need in a day. I drink approximately 2 liters of water a day, aside from other beverages and juices, which by the way also contain water.

Drinking water regularly is very important for eliminating the toxins from the body. I make it a point to drink a glass of water every 90 mins to keep myself hydrated.
