    Wow. I'd say that was quite a lot! It's approximately 2 litres but the more you weigh the more you're meant to drink... I am the complete opposite to you, not even had a drink yet today x

    Bodyweight (kg) x 0.033 = Daily intake
    E.g. 88kg x 0.033 = 2.9litres each day

    4 litres? Do you not just constantly wee? Lol! Still not had a drink yet today and it's 5pm. I kno it's bad but not thirsty, never am, not sure why. Been like it for years now but my partners mum does nothing but nag me about how I should drink more. I physically cant! Never been drunk either as can't consume enough alcohol.... :( I would probably drink a lot more if I didn't have the fear of needing the toilet all the time...

    I am taking our elderly friend to a kidney specialist at present.

    One of her questions to the specialist last week was * should I drink more water * The answer surprised me she said no . That is just as harmful to drink to much water as it is to drink to little.

    I am another one that doesn't drink enough. Perhaps a litre on a good day I drink at least 1 and a half at the weekends when I am at work.

    I must try and drink more.

    I was told to drink more when I had kidney stones a few years ago. I was quite surprised when told it could be ANY drink, (diet) coke, tea, coffee, water, milk etc. it was just a case of drinking plenty of fluid - presumably to flush the system or something. As you can see, I'm no doctor!

    Drinking plenty of water of course aid digestion and trying to be , er, delicate, aids "toiletting" I guess.

    It is however true, most people never drink enough water.
