    Relatively recently, I've stopped drinking anything but (some types of) juice, milk, and water, simply to prevent kidney stones better. That led me to studies that say that humans are supposed to consume about 2 liters of water per day! (Naturally, that includes water absorbed through, say, the shower, as well as water in foods like vegetables). I had not had any straight water for a long time before this, drinking mostly sports drinks (terrible for you by the way) and soda. Caffeine, of course, dehydrates you, increasing the need for more water.

    So, what are your tastes? Do you think that what you do is healthy, or at least healthy enough?

    Not necessarily; you could drink pure liquid hydrogen and kill yourself, or something to that extent.

    But yeah, most drinks will have a large amount of water in it. The problem is that, with sodas especially, the caffeine makes you pee, and gets rid of all the water in the soda and more.

    4-5 huge cups a day.
    I occasionally drink milk, and coke is a rarity.
    I just fell out of drinking tons of other stuff.
    Water is cheaper [​IMG]

    I have about 4-6 cold bottles of water throughout the day. I'll drink warm bottles of water (Not warm, but not cold) as well if there aren't any cold ones.

    Unfortunately, I do not drink as much water as I need to. It's a ba habit or mine >-/
    Usually I tend to drink Groselha (a syrup made from Goosebery) or any other kind of juice, but when there is not, I often do not drink anything...
    Shame on me.

    During the sports seasons, all I drink is water. Partly because I need to, and partly because I've a very sensitive stomach. My body won't "let" me drink Gatorade usually. [​IMG]

    Almost 100% water and, yes, I think the quantity is healthy. I really like the "taste" of water, nothing tastes better than it.

    I drink almost 2 gallons of water a day. I got in a bad habit drinking soda when I was younger so I switched to water. A lot cheaper and better for you as well. If I'm not drinking water I drink coffee(actually it's the only thing that gets me up at 5 a.m.). Boo to soda drinker [​IMG] lol

    Hehehe, coffee is just as bad (if not worse than) as soda, depending on what you put in it [​IMG]

    I don't drink water, only alchohol.

    I drink about 3 litres of water every day. Big fan of Crystal Lite drink crystals too.

    I drink milk when possible. When chocolate milk goes on sale the family nearly swims in it [​IMG]

    I drink no coffee or tea, and rarely drink pop.

    Beer is something like a glass with dinner out at most once in 2 months or so.
