How much water do you drink?

Post by Damien Thorn @ Tue Jul 31, 2018 12:16 pm

All us metrosexuals know that one must consume inordinate volumes of water every single day, in order to prevent our eventual dehydration and collapse into a pile of dust. Like Nosferatu and that.

Indeed, our own actual NHS rules that it must be 1.2 litres a day, in climates such as the UK's is. The NHS informs that 1.2 litres is 6 to 8 glasses, blithely ignoring my special "cheers to you, Dad!" 2 litre beer glass. But that's the public sector for you.

So. How much of the NHS's water insistence do you drink?

I drink:

A pint of water when I wake up
A pint of water with my breakfast
8-10 half pint glasses of water throughout the day
A pint of water last thing before I go to bed

Which equals about 4 of the NHS's litres. No wonder I need a wee!

You?

Probably about 4 or 5 pints a day. Lots more if I'm going out on my bike.

Depends on the weather, in hot weather I drink enough that when I take a piss what comes out is more liquid than golden syrup, in the winter I drink less, unless alcohol. Surely your body will tell you that it is thirsty if you need water, rather than an arbitrary average amount decided by a committee?

You're spreading these rules about with nary a care for their impact though Dammo, I can't stand by without protesting.

Does the water in tea count?

The answer is important.

A pint before bed datho? You pervert, that would make me need to get up for a piss in the night.

I don't have hard and fast rules but probably have 1.5 litres of water a day plus other drinks.

So far I have had 1 pint of water, one coffee, 3 cups of tea and a can of Coke Zero. I'm about to coffee up again now and have more water and then later, who knows?!

I am currently somewhere in the south of Italy. It's 34 in the shade. I'm drinking around 2 pints an hour but only pissing twice a day.

I'm doing a thing at the moment.

It's been 3 litres a day minimum for a few weeks now. But right now I am on day 4 of a 5 day stint of 6 litres a day.

I can tell you: my days revolve around the next pint of water and taking a piss. There's hardly time to do anything else!

I wouldn't have thought an Aston Martin owner would have to go for his own pisses. Don't you have someone to do that for you? Are you sure that you've made the right choice with the new car? I'll take it off your hands for a hundred pounds so long as you pay for the road tax and fill it with petrol.

Well, obviously, since buying it my winkle has grown so enormous that I generally let it trail down the corridor, across the landing and into the loo, so I don't actually need to move to take a pee.

Unless someone shuts the door on it, obviously. Then I have to chase them down and aggressively shove my phone in their face, bearing pictures of the car.

I reckon I'd probably vomit if I downed that much water on a completely empty stomach.

I don't drink enough which is bad for my gut thing. I hit 1L if i can include hot drinks which, since you're an H2O fascist, apparently I can't.

I can imagine. I bet you know exactly where the nearest toilet is at all times.

Also, isn't that how Leah Betts died?

Not quite. She drank 7 litres in 90 minutes (after taking an MDMA tab, which inhibited her ability to pee) according to wiki. Apparently that much water alone in that period ought not to be fatal.

In that case... I don't drink ANYTHING. All those pisses I do are just from water absorbed directly from the atmosphere.

I have a 750ml bottle (Sigg if you must now) on my desk and aim to drink at least 3 of them a day whilst at work along with innumerate cups of earl grey and lapsang souchong tea.

On a short ride I'll take a 750 in the cage and for a longer ride I've got a 2l backpack effort.

I was doing a thing a little while ago where i was trying to drink at least 2 litres a day... I kind of stopped and have been feeling considerably worse as a result. So, as of today i'm back on it, thanks to Tesco Every Day Value still spring water (17p for a 2l bottle fact fans)

I drink probably 2 glasses a day. But we have loads of different size glasses, so varies. On hot days I'm like a sponge and drink water constantly.

Greg, why are you drinking 6 litres per day? It doesn't disssolve fat, you know!

Because he can no longer afford to eat having blown all his cash on the Aston so he needs to feel full and water is free

If I’m smashing out a massive one, on my bike, Ill drink about 2 litres of water from the bidons and a couple of pints in a pub or 2 somewhere on a 100+ mile effort, maybe 2.5 litres if it’s hot. Normally I’ll drink about 4 pints of water in a day.
