Drink 8 glasses of Water a day - Urban Legend?

I’m giving up on this goal, after reading the Snopes article on it here:


I drink plenty of fluids, including caffeinated coffee, tea and colas. I eat a healthy diet which also contains water.

I’ll have some water when I’m thirsty, and after exercising, and forget this 8 glasses a day thing.

Update: The BBC have a new program called "The Truth About Food", and they have also debunked this theory.

My favorite has always been the supermodels who, when asked how they've attained their beauty, say asinine things like: "I drink a lot of water." If that were all it took . . .

I liked the links. Thanks for sharing.
