    I recently gave up drinking energy drinks and now drink water instead and try to drink 4 litres a day.

    Hardly manage even 1 litre of pure water. I do however
    supplement my water intake from caffeinated beverages
    and juices, which is not very good...but not the biggest
    fan of water [personally. I do like flavoured water
    however, and do drink it occasionally.

    5 litres is impressive! 4 litres is about the most I can manage..

    Cold water straight from the fridge really helps

    That's a hell of a lot - you must be going for a pee all the time

    Think there's an urban legend started by bottled water companies about drinking very large amounts of water being good for you... but it's not necessary

    imo 4l too much and you will be going to the loo all day.

    Colour of urine and thirst are adequate indicators.

    Yeah I'm using the bathroom a lot... I know too much water can be worse for you but that's only if you're drinking a serious amount.

    Funny you should mention that, coz i just started doing that
    when i ran out of juice. Tap water tastes amazing when
    refrigerated. Thanks for the tip

    Well it's better than 4l of energy or fizzy drink... but it seems pretty odd to have a target amount unless you've got a medical condition or something.

    Went from 0 to 1 to 2 right back to hardly any. Maybe 2 or 3 glasses of water if lucky :hide:

    I didn't drink 4 litres of energy drinks! lol I'd probably be dead. I used to drink 2 cans of relentless everyday and each can is 500ml, I'd sometimes have an extra 300ml of coke or something as well without drinking hardly any water, maybe 1 small glass before bed.

    I'm doing it mostly as an experiment to see how drinking water makes me feel and just to kinda detox myself of toxins and stuff. After a month I'll reduce it to 3 litres probably which will be much more manageable.

    You do if you weigh 120 kg and are a professional athlete.

    I have a set routine

    1 pint +2 mugs of green tea in the morning

    I have 700ml of coffee in my flask + a further 2 litres of green tea

    in the evening I drink half a pint of water with my evening meal

    and then have a pint of milk before bed and then a pint of water and a further half pint of water prior to actually sleeping after I've had a shower.

    I don't count or have any set routine. How much water I need can vary significantly day to day depending on the weather and how much excercise I've done. I just drink a cup whenever I feel I need it, and I'd say I average 1.5-2 litres per day.
