  • No, I drink when I am thirsty. I don't believe in the old "8 oz/day" each person has a unique bodily system and no two people are exactly the same. Keep that in mind. In my opinion there is no such thing as "General health rules"

  • Absolutely, at a minimum. Its really not very much water.

  • I didn't use to until this pregnancy. Now I drink more than 8 glasses of water a day

  • No I don't. I really need to put more effort in remembering.

  • I used to but I haven't been very good at it lately. I have a pink water bottle I keep filled up with cold water that holds 32 oz I think and I drink at least one to maybe 2 of those a day.

  • at least ... I used to drink a ton of water then we made enough money to buy sodas so I probably drank more diet Pepsi than water ... well I kicked the diet soda thing and am back to 10+ glasses of water a day
