I consume lemon water first thing in the morning. Just 1 glass water with 1/4th lemon ( without sugar)
I have heard that it cleanses the system, aids digestion, also stimulate the liver.
Rest of the day I just drink water ( around 5 glasses) and 2 to 3 cups of green tea.
I drink at least 64 oz, but some days are upwards of 128oz. I carry a quart sized water bottle, so it's not so difficult most days.
Although I hear it's been proven that you don't really need to drink 64 oz of actual water per day, I know I need much more than that. I generally try to get in between a gallon and 180oz. i usually hit the gallon mark, or close. The more consistently I drink this much, the more consistent my weight loss. I average 1400-1600 regardless of how much I drink
No, I am diabetic -- I simply only drink water and coffee. Plus, I exercise.
Yes, I've been drinking this much water for years to no ill effect.
This is, of course, anecdotal and pertains to me -- what works for one doesn't always 'hold water' for another...
I tend to drink ~96 oz a day. I have a 24oz water bottle and I'll fill it up about 3 times, with 2 12oz cups of coffee. I like to drink a lot so I'll be motivated to walk around the office (to the restroom with all that peeing hehehe)
I can just as easily drink 80 + oz. as I can drink fewer than 20 oz. If I'm thirsty I drink water, otherwise I don't. It has worked for me thus far in my life.
One of these days I'll average it out, but I can tell you that it's at least 3-4L per day, if not more. Especially on days I workout, it may be up to 6-7L.
I consume about 1L before I even have breakfast.
I'm a camel.
Lemon water is good, cleansing -- I drink 3 water bottles per day (at least, 16 oz). I carry the bottle around with me at work and to meetings. It is better than coffee. I always think to myself "have i had enough water today" if the answer is "yes" I drink another bottle - I like to add Crystal Lite to mine when I need sweetness!
I bet you pee like a racehorse
This is my first day drinking 64 oz. of water. It's really helped me to fill fuller.
I HATE drinking water. Never used to drink it, maybe one glass per week lol. Now that Im dieting and trying to eat healthy, I drink about 64 oz a day. (4 small 500 ml bottles worth). Some days I might drink more. I start off with one bottle with breakfast and just keep filling it up as often as I can remember. I hate it because Im constantly going to the bathroom to pee now.
@carmenxox lol. And here I was thinking that I was going a bit overboard, as I drink up to 3- 4L of water per day. Try not to overdo it though, kidneys might resent it
OmG! 4 Litres? Is that even good for you? lol I'd never stay out of the bathroom.

You bet your ass I do!
10-14 glasses a day here.
*3 CHEERS FOR CLEAR PEE!!!*
About 64oz (my water bottle 32oz x2), I like my water cold so I have it in the fridge and try to consume 1 bottle before dinner and refilled for after dinner (or 1 bottle during my workout, whenever that is). I have a hard time drinking it cause I am a tea/coffee lover and all I want is tea or coffee and only really want water when it is either really warm out or if I workout.
I like lemon water (no sugar added either from a lemon or lemon juice from a bottle) but still I only really like it when the weather is warmer and nice so I feel refreshed not drowning my insides with water while it pours cold spring rain outside (I swear winter hasn't left my area yet!) X /
I must admit, through and through, I have less water retention even when I consume more sodium than I should, workout and TOM when I drink at least 6-8 8oz of water. When I am lazy I only drink 48oz and even though I have been drinking water for about 2 months (from not being a water drinker) it still is hard for me to drink so much and I still go to the bathroom a lot :P
I typically drink about 4-5 16.9 oz bottles of water a day and then i drink like 3-4 cups of coffee , sometimes even a fountain pop here and there with lots of ice. I guess i am just a big drinker lol!
i try to drink 3 liters per day.
armandounc, i've read that drinking water increases metabolism and therefore makes the body more efficient at losing weight. is this not true?
