In general, I consider myself to be a pretty healthy person. I eat well (with some cake allowance!), exercise (just done 5 miles tonight), I don't smoke, and drink alcohol rarely. What I don't do, like the vast majority of people, is drink enough water.
It is a new-ish book, only a few years old and its really informative about what things are best to eat for what benefits etc. One of the re-curring themes was the importance of drinking 2 litres (about 4 1/2 pints) of water a day. Now this is nothing new of course - you hear it all the time, but how many people actually do this EVERY day? Hmmm. Well, I decided that it was about time that I gave it a go, so since monday, I have been drinking more or less 2 litres of water each day.
My first impressions? Its hard! When you are only used to having a few cups of tea and maybe a glass or two of water each day, drinking this much feels weird!
Obviously, the side effect of this is you need to go to the loo very frequently! This is not a problem for me as I work from home, but I can't imagine how you would go on doing this 2L water glugging if you for example, had a driving job, or worked in a busy shop or office! Maybe its just because I'm not used to it yet.
I'm going to see how I get on for the next two weeks.....
