  • I drink at least that, but I drink like a camel - coffee in the morning and early afternoon and water the rest of the day.

  • At a minimum I do, but I try to drink more than that. When I don't get enough water I can see the difference in my skin.

  • Yes I do, it's just a standard number and everyone is different. But drinking enough water throughout the day is essential to proper health

  • Yes, because I lost a good amount of weight when I was eating properly and drinking 10 glasses of water a day. I lost 9 lbs. my very first week doing that.
