I always struggle to get my gallon a day. I don't know why because if I drank a pint of water for every waking hour a day I would get a out 16 pints per day. Niw that is more than enough. For some reason I just never get enough.
Not sure if I want someone to scare me into drinking more.
Is it like if you don't eat enough Protein, you won't put on as much size? Or, are there real medical effects?

Not having enough water leads to
That scare you enough?
If not, then remember that on high protein diets, you need adequate water for your kidneysto function. I've also found that my lifts tend to be weaker when i don't drink. And god forbid you drink ethanol and then drink little water, and then go work out.Abercrombie's not about helping people, No, Abercrombie's about about playing rugby in a fresh green field with your bset buddy, and both of you forgot your clothes. Abercrombie's about hittin the slopes on a crisp winter day, then going back to roaring fire and having group sex. Abercrombie's about doing laps at the old pool house with your bros from the swim team, and shaving each other's legs for speed, and each other's nads for fun.

Unless you eat particularly dry food, you only need about 4 glasses of water a day. All the rest of the water you need comes from the food you eat and other liquids you consume. If you do intense cardio, you might add another 8 to 16 ozs. of water.
This preoccupation with drinking water like there's no tomorrow is based on urban mythology. Generally, if you drink when you're thirsty, you'll be just fine.
