    Folks,

    So lately I have been reading about the benefits of drinking more water. Also my city, has recently instituted a "sugar" tax on beverages with any kind of sugar. In my case that is only the artificial kind, BUT still it costs me extra! So to save money AND for health reason, I have decided to start drinking mostly water. Well I read about this one gallon a day water challenge. Now it's hard, BUT I think I can do it! It's 8, 16 bottles a day. Right now I'm half way through bottle 4.

    So who is with me? Lets do this together. Lets drink more water and get healthy!

    The gallon a day seems a bit much... But, since I went to mostly water, and the occasional juice, and rare carbonated beverage...that and walking motivated by my Watch helped me drop weight where I'm a shadow of my former self...

    When I was residing in Orlando full time, I could easily drink a gallon of water a day and did it for years. I still drink a good amount of water, but not a gallon a day anymore. I'm so busy at work to where 4 to 5 hours will have passed before I realize that I haven't drank any water or anything else. Anyway, good luck with the challenge. It's easier to do in certain climates...

    I'm getting to the water, I promise. I've cut my soda intake to lunch only and I drink G2 Gatorade then water. Soon it will be water only. My other endeavor is the "crazy" one.

    I usually drink between 64 and 80 ounces of water a day, but a gallon is to much.

    Didn't the rule of thumb used to be 8 8oz glasses of water a day? That would add up to a 1/2 gallon. I can drink more than that but I'm not sure that I could drink a whole gallon. I do recognize that I need to lay off the pop and drink more water; and as I posted earlier I am going to try!

    Yes 1/2 gallon is GREAT! but I'm shooting for a gallon a day! Its tough, I have not made it every day to be honest, but I'm coming close. Yesterday I had 3 liters, which is a bit over 3/4 a gallon.

    I've been drinking 120-150 oz of water a day for probably a year or more now. I rarely ever get sick and I don't crave sugary drinks anymore. I do, however, use the restroom a lot.

    I drink ½ gallon of water but couldn't drink 1 gallon other than in really hot weather. I don't drink any soda, regular or diet. I do drink coffee and milk.

    It's amazing what you find in drinks when you start reading labels. As a type 2 diabetic, I have to watch everything I eat and drink. While I can drink that much water in a day, I can't drink plain water. It must have some, even the smallest touch, of flavor. For example, I can take a bottle of flavored water, for example, and pour just a bit in a cup and then fill the rest of the cup with water and I'll drink that all day long. It also helps that I get in my 10k steps every day, even if I have to use the treadmill.
