who actually tries (and succeeds) at doing this?
as to the benefits of this actually.
i drink 2 litres of water easily everyday i reckon, i just like it.
It's an entirely arbitrary amount that 'they' (I don't really know who 'they' are, but I don't like them) made up for no real reason.
Probably won't harm you, but it's not 'necessary'.
I hate these stupid RDA figures. 5 fruit-and-veg a day! 38 grams of iron! 19 kilos of calcium! Pah.
That's a lot of cheese!
'they' are shit
seeing as everything you consume has a water content
Two fuck-ups already? I should leave this thread
'We Are All Made Of Stars'? Well, he didn't list all the ingredients
"the two litres claim is a 1945 US study, which concluded that under normal circumstances most people need around two litres of fluid a day. But this can come from other suitable drinks and from food. For example, a baked potato is 70 percent water."
When I tried to drink 2 litres a day I ended up feeling bloated and rubbish.
of diluting orange with loads of ice a day,i used to drink 2 litres of irn bru a day but it just leaves you feeling more thirsty,i recommend diluting juice with ice,in pints!!
and people obtain most fluids from the foods they eat
If I work on sort of 25-30 normal sized glasses a day.
Even so, 2 litres isn't much and I tend to feel slightly better if I'm well hydrated.
The trick is to not gulp it down, otherwise you just piss it all out. I can never be bothered with drinking slowly.
as i dont put much in and the rest is water and ice,the water in work just leaves a dry taste in my mouth,im still partial to a nice cold can of bru during the day.
