    Exclamation Water and liquid intake in general

    All my life I have struggled to really want to drink anything .

    I can remember when I first had a bike in the summer riding it and sweating in the summer and enjoying a nice cold glass of water and such times nowadays in hot climates when sweating I love a cold bottle of water .

    Other than that I could really go for ages without wanting to drink anything .

    My younger brother is the exact opposite he continually drinks , and when I say continually I mean literally one after another , ok he drinks a fair amount of alcohol , but when I am round his he will drink cup after cup of tea , water , juice anything he can tip down his neck !

    The irony of this being he is the one who has kidney problems ! having had various operations on them over the years .

    Now I know I am a twat for not drinking , BUT I have changed my ways , and for the last 8 years or so I force myself to drink .

    This is now what I consume on a daily basis

    Start of day 2 cups of tea

    During day 2 cups of tea + a 2 litre bottle of sparkling water

    With my meal at night 1 or 2 glasses of apple juice

    Before bed 1 mug of hot chocolate

    I take no sugar in any drinks other than the apple juice .

    Now I don't know if the amount I drink is normal / average / good for you or what ? but all I do know is its an effort to drink any of it , I just really feel no desire or thirst at anytime , all I am doing is following my doctors instructions to drink more .
    I'm proud of my 38" waist , also proud I have never done drugs

    I was just sat here drinking a few glasses of wine and thinking of your water retention, Nige.

    I think I've sussed it and I've not finished the bottle yet{ok ts a 4 litre box of Peter Vella}

    Anyhow, here's the the theory work so far....

    You were a Camel in your last life and you've been re-incarnated with the hump on the wrong side.

    The kangaroo rat, named as such because it has large, powerful back legs that allow it to jump up to 3 meters at once to avoid predators, survives primarily on seeds and beans that are high in water content, meaning every bit of water they actually need to survive is in the food they eat.
    You eat a lot of seeds, beans or pussy.

    I would go with the urine color. If it is intense yellow or any color you don't drink enough for long term kidney health.

    on a work day its 3 cups of tea in the morning, water all day (maybe a ltr), a can of coke at lunch and a couple of big beers in the evening.

    on the weekend its a milkshake in the morning and 3/4 beers all day.. maybe i should put ice in them...
    I'd like to see what morning looks like
    Don't wanna drink pint after pint
    I wanna wake up without feeling sick
    But I can't cuz I'm a drug-abusing alcoholic

    I very rarely drink beer or any alcohol these days , so beer don't come into the equation .

    Last Thursday night the dear little wife took me out for a lovely meal for my birthday ,, I had a soda water + ice ,, she had a bucket full of Indian lager

    Bit embarrassing at times as they always bring me the pint of lager wherever we go , and give her the soft drink .

    1. She could be mistaken for not being old enough to drink

    2. The pint is bigger than her

    I don't want to "take the piss" but I am sure we are all anxious to ascertain the nature of your bowel movements. Given your low fluid intake it is possible that your stools are far too hard and defecation may be be a very painful process for you.

    My advice to you is to drink lots of senna tea. Meanwhile, you should consider reinforcing your toilet bowl with wire mesh to stop impact damage and resulting collapse.

    Lay off carbonated water and flush yourself with the proper H2O from the sink and drink loads of milk.

    I recommend taking these whilst living here. I wasn't drinking much and when cycling and I got cramps and joint pains. Problem ceased on start of taking these.

    Thanks for that Prag , I have never heard of them

    I will deffo give them a try .

    Just a bit of an aside one of our local BBC radio commentators got took ill a few weeks ago , virtually collapsed he did , same age as me , spent the weekend in hospital I believe he said rehydrating on a drip .

    Got a severe bollicking of the docs and got told to take a bottle of water around with him and drink aa much as he could from now on .

    It was fairly serious stuff apparently ,, the guy even said at the time he didn't know what was going on and he thought he was a goner

    Dillinger's right, Nige. It is in fact possible to become dehydrated even if you drink a lot.

    And if your brother has had kidney problems, you need to be a bit more cautious about the whole thing. Though having said that, good on you for forcing yourself to drink enough. I am the same....I just don't get as thirsty as I get older, and I force myself. If I do not, I suffer by getting a headache, and that is the only time I get headaches.

    You could try exercising a bit more; that will definitely make you thirsty. Perhaps it is because we get more sedentary as we get older that we get less thirsty.

    I wouldn't recomment lots of milk though. It's meant for baby cows, and there is a lot of evidence that it is not as good for humans as we are led to believe (by the dairy industry).

    Yep - especially the way that Western-type of milk is produced.
    Though, many still buy into the propaganda......which should led one to believe that most still don't a clue towards a healthy diet in general.

    Add Isotonic drinks or Hypotonic drinks to your diet as well as water. I believe they hydrate you faster and better than plain water. An Isotonic mix or weak or diluted ORS is easy to prepare and fairly cheap. In the UK, I used to buy Isostar powder mix. In Thailand, I drink Royal-D electrolyte mix (5 or 6 baht per sachet).




    Isotonic - quickly replaces fluids lost by sweating and supplies a boost of carbohydrate. This drink is the choice for most athletes - middle and long distance running or team sports. Glucose is the body's preferred source of energy therefore it may be appropriate to consume Isotonic drinks where the carbohydrate source is glucose in a concentration of 6% to 8% - e.g. High Five, SiS Go, Boots Isotonic, Lucozade Sport.

    Hypotonic - quickly replaces fluids lost by sweating. Suitable for athletes who need fluid without the boost of carbohydrate e.g. jockeys and gymnasts.
