It seems like a lot of "health problems" that normies have is really just caused by dehydration. They feel like shit then drink a coffee, tea, or Coke and get even more dehydrated so it gets worse.

Ugh I try all the damn time to get my friends to drink water. One of them "doesn't like the taste" and the other just prefers not to. I drink it at every opportunity. For one, it's cheaper when you go out to eat since it's, you know, FREE. There's nothing that tastes better than a fresh glass when you're thirsty or dehydrated or it's hot out. The friend that doesn't like it is constantly complaining about migraines and not feeling good and how much weight she's gained and I'm just baffled. Like, drink some fucking water! Damn!

Whenever I travel or fly I take an empty tumbler with me and fill it up in a bathroom or water fountain. Maybe the initial empty bottle would work since you're not having to travel to campus with a heavy water bottle and you drink at your own pace?

Getting one of those reusable plastic cups with the straws was the best thing for my water drinking habits lol. I realized I just like to drink out of straws more, so I'm more likely to regularly drink water if I have my water cup, plus if I have to drink tap water and its funky taste I can just put the straw farther in my mouth so I don't have it running over as much of my tongue lol.

Reminder this "remember to drink X litres of water a day for your health!" is entirely an American thing to sell you bottled water, which would only work in a country where the tap water tastes like shit.

I use a brita pitcher, I never buy bottled water. Dunno if the brita actually does that much filtering to the tap water but it makes it taste better so whatever.

No. 512778

that meme is because there was a study that shows that coffee makes people need to pee more, but it hasn't been shown to actually "dehydrate" the body any more than drinking a liter of water and then needing to pee more "dehydrates" the body. it's not like coffee is a sponge that soaks up the water in your body but the way the phrase "coffee dehydrates you" is constructed makes people assume it's that way.

clear pee could indicate too much water intake or abnormal electrolyte levels.

No. 512779

I mean a lot of people don't get enough water every day and could drink more, but you definitely don't need as much as people act like you do. I've heard weight loss advice that says drink more than a gallon of water a day and honestly that's not gonna do anything. Supposedly drinking a lot of water can curb hunger but it's never done that for me.

I almost exclusively drink tap water. Sometimes my hot water comes out brown (I don't drink that obviously and who drinks hot tap water anyway) but the cold water is usually fine. Even clear tap water tastes weird and chemical to me though especially if I'm not drinking it directly from the sink using my hands as a cup. For some reason putting tap water in a glass makes it taste worse. Reusing disposable water bottles definitely seems to impart a chemical flavor as well. Am I going to get cancer from this? Should I invest in one of those Brita things that go on the faucet so I can continue drinking from the sink like an animal? Right now I'm basically drinking pool water out of a smartwater bottle that has been sitting in the sunlight all day and I think this is going to end up killing me.

Throw out? You don't recycle them?

No. 512789

Recycling is still bad for the environment tbh. It takes a lot of energy/resources to make the plastic in the first place and then a ton of water and energy to recycle it, and even then plastic can only be recycled once or twice before going to a landfill. Sometimes it can't even be recycled once.

My parents come from a shithole country that made them nutty about finding clean drinking water so we had a system where we occasionally top up a jug with tap water that’s been previously boiled. Tbh in comparison regular tap water tastes like the tears of a mountain god so when I had fancy bottled water that blew my fucking mind into orbit. Seriously, they tut in horror when they see me drink from the kitchen tap so I drank liquid sadness for over a decade.

This. I don't live in America and you never see this DRINK WATER UWU shilling because our tap water tastes good and doesn't make you sick.

No. 515177

this isn't true.
>The acid in lemon juice can damage the enamel of your teeth. Enamel is the protective covering that defends your teeth against all sorts of things. When it becomes eroded, it can leave your teeth at risk for cavities and other damage. Weakened enamel is also a leading cause of tooth sensitivity. Fortunately, enamel is one of the most durable substances in the body, and it takes a lot to damage it. While lemon juice has an extremely high acid content—higher than soda, wine, coffee, tea, or even vinegar—you’d need to consume high concentrations of lemon juice over a prolonged period of time to do much damage to your enamel.

No. 517439

many natural?/normal urges can easily be lost if you learn to ignore them. eventually your body will just stop sending you the signals to do things you arent doing. some people forget about things like drinking water during their routines, so their bodies will just learn to regulate function with less fluid intake even if it impaires function of other parts of the body. most people genuinely dont realize theyre even dehydrated. or theyre subbing what should be water with other small beverage intakes and equating all fluid intake= hydration

No. 517440

Wow that makes sense. When I was a kid I used to get unbearably thirsty if I didn't drink water for a few hours, now I can't even remember the last time I felt thirst. The only sign I get that I need water is if I feel dizzy and weak.

>or theyre subbing what should be water with other small beverage intakes and equating all fluid intake= hydration

Because all fluid intake (except alkohol), and also eating juicy fruit and vegetables or soup, is hydration and water is not even the most hydrating beverage aviable. It's a common sense. Or at least it used to be lol.
