I recently downloaded an app for my phone which is supposed to remind me to drink water. I record when I have water and then if it senses I've gone 'too long' without a drink it reminds me with quite a cool 'flushing water' sound. The problem is that I just can't drink the amount of water it says I should. I pour myself a glass and it takes me at least an hour of constantly sipping to get it down me. I hardly ever feel thirsty - I know you're not supposed to as thirst is a sign you are already dehyrated - but I just don't feel like drinking anything unless I'm thirsty. I've always been like this; I just have never drank very much during the day. I enjoy cups of tea during the work day if I can manage to find the time, but it's not unusual for me to to go all day ithout drinking something. I'd say I average 2 - 3 cups of tea at work (one before the day starts, one at break if possible and sometimes one at lunchtime OR after school whilst marking at my desk). Once home, I seldom have a drink, if I do it's a glass of juice with dinner, but I hardly ever drink the whole thing. So, my question...is it possible that my body just doesn't want this much fluid? I started back in January trying to drink the required two litres. I brought a large bottle to work every day but very seldom managed to drink more than half of it. Even then, I'd feel totally full and bloated from drinking the water. What do you reckon? Does anyone else find drinking water a problem.
