    No it really isn't as hard as you think. While you are at home at night, just keep sipping on some ice water, drink drink drink, but not too fast to where you will feel like you are getting really full (of water...). When I do it, I piss about once every 45-50 minutes. Fun to watch it clear out your system :) .

    well i know that I of all people should be drinking alot of water because I get kidney infections all the time. i never drank alot of water when i was younger..just juice and koolaid and such. i had major kidney surgery when i was 3..so why my mom didnt make me drink gallons of water is beyond me...but o well.
    so now when i drink alot of water..it makes me nauseated. is that weird? i'm up to about 60-80 ounces of water a day...which is much better than the 20 i was getting :o

    I follow the "8 glasses minumum" rule. I keep my water bottle with me at all times (almost, i'm still a little forgetful). it makes it a ton easier to drink the water if it's right there all the time. GND taught me a neat trick- put a few drops of lemon juice in the water to give it a little flavor. I just drink refrigerated tap water so it helps a lot. :)

    The problem is in the mineral content. It is possible to flush out your system of valuable vitamins/minerals. One of the symptoms is a craving for more, believe it or not, water! The type of water we drink directly affects us.

    Dehydration can reduce athletic performance and lead to fatigue, and it is vital for those who are exercising to drink enough water. A general rule is to drink twice as much water as is necessary to quench thirst. Exercise also increases needs for electrolytes, sodium, chloride and potassium. Magnesium and calcium needs may also be greater.

    You said you feel nauseated when you drink water? Are you on any meds?

    nope...no meds. I was on a decongestant a week ago...but it's been making me nauseated for years. I sucked it up though and this last 2 weeks, I've been drinking alot of water..and I love it now. It sucks that my tap water is kinda nasty, and i can't afford enough bottles...but I just keep making myself drink the tap water becaue it's better than none.
