How much water do you drink each day?

Do you drink your water plain or do you add flavoring/fruit to it to spice it up a bit?

I try to drink several bottles a day  and add lemon to mine. I saw somewhere here on Ivillage that if you keep bottles in the fridge with a bowl of fresh fruit slices nearby, you're more likely to reach for one. It really has helped me drink more water.

I have heard one has to drink half their body weight.. I for one drink lots of water more than that.. ( I do know for a fact over doing water can be hard on the system... I had a health issues a few years back by over drinking... seizure ... I love lemon in my water but have done plain iced water... I love the ice in it... Not into hot water... but someone told me to try the hot..

Great idea, Brenda!  I've actually never tried fruit in my water but it sounds so good!

Wow!  That must have been a scary experience.  I have heard that too much is bad... never really know where you reach the point of too much though...

I drink tons of ice water.  So much, in fact, that I have to use the bathroom far too often (I hate that!).  I have been trying Dasani drops this week too and they are super yummy.  Gives it a nice little kick!

This isn't exactly water... but I do go for hot tea when I am hungry but really don't want a snack.  It seems to curb my appetite a bit.

Hi everyone.  I drink at least 8 cups of water a day.  I find that it really helps with my weight loss.  I drink bottled water and add individual iced tea packages to them.
