October Weight Loss Challenge Day 5: How Much Water Do You Drink?

Welcome to Day 5 of the October Weight Loss Challenge.

How much water do you drink a day?

Do you prefer your water to be bottled, filtered or from the tap?

How much water will you drink today?

What other beverages do you drink to stay hydrated?


A healthy womans adequate water intake is at least 2.2 liters per day for normal body function. Drinking eight 8oz glasses of water is roughly 1.9 liters. You will need a higher water intake if you are active.

Why water is important:

  • Water flushes toxins out of our vital organs.
  • Lack of water can lead to dehydration. Dehydration will make you tired, draining your energy levels.
  • Drinking water helps control your between meal cravings
  • Energizes your muscles
  • Keeps your skin hydrated which allows us to maintain a youthful appearance
  • Maintains healthy bowel function

I try to drink 64 oz a day. I don't keep track though. I just always try to keep some with me. I refill water bottles with tap and with filtered water. I've also been drinking a glass of water before I eat and I seem to not eat so much which is good

I usually drink 8-10 glasses a day. I have been slacking this week and only drinking 4-6. I drink two cups of coffee every morning and than water the rest of the day.

We drink bottled water. Aim for a gallon a day, but don't always make it. I'll drink at least 1/2 gallon thoughi usually don't drink much else
