Water......I am drinking more
Cindigal posted:
Soo....yesterday I perused some of the diets that are listed in the boards, just curious. Some looked reasonable, all the pyramid foods were listed. I saw some ridiculous diets that I ever saw.. (i wont mention the diets). It was very comical to me......i had to chuckle to myself.. who on earth would just consist of that. Anyway, one thing I knew already they stress is ...water, water and more water. Ok, I do drink my herbal teas which i love and I was drinking Crystal Lite, which I thought was the same as water. But I was not going to the bathroom with matter how many glasses i had. Started yesterday, I got one of my thermos and put all water with ice cubes. The thermos contains 20 oz of liquid. I filled the bottle 4 times. I had to go to the bathroom several times. Today, same thing....I am hoping that will a good improvement with weight. And the same time, my water out of my tap is darn good. I discovered that one of my sisters visited me in November said to me......your water from the tap tastes great. I just brushed it off. Now I am drinking that great water. I will not overdo the water because i know water intoxication is deadly....that's for sure.

Some are reasonable, some less so and if you read the whole article you find out that our experts are not so impressed.
