I regularly only drink three things in a day. Coffee in the morning, water during the day, and beer in the evening. That's it. Lately, the beer consumption has been higher than it should be so I'm cutting back big time (no longer drinking during the work week). I wasn't getting hammered every night or anything but 2-3 beers (usually heavier beers) add up over time. Seeing I had no where to be, why not?


Anyway, part of getting back to good health I've adopted a new workout plan and noticed just how dehydrated I was. I've just upped it to half a gallon a day and can already feel a difference after just a few days.


So that begs the question, how much are you drinking?

Well done on making changes. Drinking more during lockdown seems to have been a common thing. I generally drink on a Friday night, but sometimes I'll drink on a Saturday night and Sunday evening if I'm having a BBQ or something. It's not worth it - feeling tired for a couple of days after the weekend.


I don't drink enough water, maybe 2 liters a day. I drink far too much tea.


Best of luck on your new lifestyle. I'm gonna start drinking more water too.

I chug a few glasses (20-30oz) first thing in the morning, have 16oz of coffee, bring about 40oz h2o with me to work that I drink throughout day, have a beer or two at night, then drink another 8-16oz.

Yeah. I'm closer to 40 oz of coffee or so a day. :o. I only drink my coffee black though.

Good for you. I would think tea wouldn't be as bad as coffee and beer but I guess it depends on how much tea you're drinking.

Probably several large cups or more if I'm exercising a lot. Not really into having a set number of ounces or anything.

I've been working on cutting my alcohol intake and increasing water consumption during the day as well. As it stands right now I'm probably at 1.5-2L per day, but I want to increase it more. Before I started making the effort, i was probably drinking a single 500mL bottle every day and I was dehydrated as hell.
