Hi, I'm aware that it's recommended to drink between 2-3 litres of water per day, or 8 8oz glasses,but is sipping 2 litres through out the day the same.currently between 8am to 8 pm I sip about 2,2 litres,sometimes part of this 2 litres might be week hot chocolate. Your thoughts please, Thanks

Some say that tea coffee or soft drinks don't count.

I am suppose to drink 2-3 litres of water a day but the Tap water around here leaves a lot to be desired so I suppose I cheat and count my umpteen mugs of coffee as water.

I know that I should stick to water but I have never liked drinking it and the only time I do is if I am in Hospital so that I can get out quicker.

When your body needs water it will let you know -- you get thirsty.

When you have too much water again you know -- ........ :0)

You can drink too little and too much water.

Recent article in the Telegraph said Tea and Coffee DO count. Just as well, as I never drink water!

When I was in places hot, we were told to monitor the colour of the pee - if it changed from pale yellow, probably dehydrated.

I too never drink plain water,always coffee/tea(& probably too many of these)When driving,I never feel thirsty but get headaches unless I have a cup of tea.As stated,colour of pee is another indicator.

Stating that you need to drink 2-3 litres of water a day is humbug, unless you have a true medical problem that requires you drink certain requirements of water or liquids. Seeing people walking around with the apparent compulsory bottle of Avian or whatever, makes me sometimes wonder how some of these people live, and how their lives are ruled. Is marketing really important of a 'must have' society. Bit like the 'must have' 5 a day adverts?.

Your body should or would tell you if it requires something.
