nygirl07:Wow I really need to drink more....I'm having trouble getting down 3 16oz bottles and if I do that it's a lot. I've been waking up atleast once but sometimes 3 times to pee at night still....I can't imagine what's gonna happen increasing it. I might just sleep on the toilet :)
If you are peeing that often and its clear or very pale yellow, you are getting enough. Not everyone needs 64 oz. Its not a magic number. Everyone's body uses water at different rates depending on activity level, metabolism, amount of salt intake etc... We all have different needs. Don't force more on yourself unless you have physical signs of dehydration.
I typcially drink 64 oz +. I bring a 32 oz. nalgene bottle to work everyday, and then try and fill it and drink another one at home before I have anything else. I really haven't been drinking much else besides water. I often have a sparkling water at night, but that still counts as water!
Yogurt, and fruits w/ high water content (watermelon, for example) count towards your fluid intake, too...
I've been getting about 4 of my 14 oz Nalgene bottles in a day, so about 56 oz. Plus all the soup and fruits/veggies I like with high water content.
Even when I drink only 3 bottles, I wind up peeing every 1-2 hours and it's clear to very pale yellow, so I feel plenty hydrated!
