How much water should I drink?
I advocate drinking lots and lots of pure water all throughout the day, as opposed to drinking big glasses in the morning and evening, or some other way of feast or famine water consumption.
People drink those huge glasses all at once because, for them, it’s a little like taking medicine that doesn’t taste good. They don’t like the “taste” of water.
If you don’t like the taste of water, try alkaline water or filtered water. It may be that you don’t like the taste of chlorine or that your body is rejecting fluoride or other contaminants in the water. There are a few good water filters that deal with chlorine, including Seychelle, Berkey and Aquapure.
Anyway, enough preaching. I’d say drink at least 64 ounces a day of good, pure water but probably … more water, unless there’s some medical reason you should limit the amount of water you take in.
I personally boycott anything Nestle’ because of their practices. However, I also avoid bottled water in general because of the waste it produces, the lack of true regulation as to quality and the expense of it. I use a good water filter. I can recommend a few I’ve personally used plus the Big Berkey, the one that I want to use as soon as I can afford it:
