CRAZY that im seeing this because I started my water challenge last week ! My skin has become very even and glowy && its helps very well when im working out, I get tired less !

DRINK UP GUYS

30 Aug
Really!?? I can't wait to see improvement in my complexion. How much do you drink per day?
30 Aug
YES its amazing ! && I drink a gallon per day, I take my aquafina bottle and just feel it up 6 times per day ! Its a 20 oz bottle soo 6 of those equals a gallon ! Even if I cant reach 6 I atleast aim for 5 or 4 , I never drunk this much water in my life lOl soo im seeing BIG changes in my body & skin.
30 Aug
Is it causing you to look or feel bloated?
30 Aug
NO I just go to the bathroom alittle more than usually lOl youll see a HUGE difference in your urine as well ! I would say the first or 2nd day I started I did feel alil blowded but I guess it was my body just getting use to soo much water but now ifeel normal and refreshed !

I think that y'all need to read this first:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Water_intoxication

Having a gallon of water per day on top of the rest of the water you absorb through food is downright dangerous. For one thing, too much water flushes the electrolytes out of your system, and as people who work out know, electrolytes are indispensable for basic bodily functions. Too much water also makes the brain swell, and I am not going to get into the gruesome details about that. Suffice to say that you are exposing yourself to dangers, some of which can cause permanent damage and even death.

Are you coming to this community because you want to be healthy or are you looking to mess yourself up?
30 Aug
Yeah, I know what ur talking about. Saw an episode on 1,000 ways to die about a girl drinking way too much water. Im doing this challenge still but im doing it on my terms on the amount of water that is right for my weight and all. So no worries there
30 Aug
Doctor says its healthy for my age and weight ! Also you will know when you have drinkin too mich water because your stomach will swell, a gallon WILL NOT HURT YOUR BODY its just the perfect amount since your body naturally asborbs water also !
30 Aug
Well, the episode on 1000 ways to die is a lie, like all of the episodes. None of that crap actually happened. But the danger of water intoxication is still very real. I think people should not chug water if it doesn't feel right, just because they are on a challenge. Obviously, some people are big enough and active enough to be fine with a gallon, but for some people, a gallon is dangerous.
30 Aug
Walker G, Did you read the disclaimer? And the more active you are the more water you need so yeah if you're just sitting around not being active 1 gallon of water is way to much but again I clearly state that no one knows what your body better than you so do what "you" can this isn't a chug the water challenge and thanks for doing your research
30 Aug
Man, ill keep my mouth shut about tv shows. Was only saying it was on there. The giys who talked about y she died say the samethings on sites about drinking toi much water. So it not all a lie then cuz it can happen. Anyway cant wait to start challenge in the am :-)

I've always drank water. What really helps is adding some lemon it makes it easier to drink more. Fyi: use a straw.

If you do this I suggest you start off with 8 bottles then keep drinking more each day so your body adjusts tto the amount of water

01 Sep
8 bottles would be more than a gallon babe ,
02 Sep
I thought it was less._.
02 Sep
Depends on the ounce on the bottle, if its 20oz which is the standard water bottle size 6 bottles would equal a gallon! So 8 would be a little more
