I don't drink a lot of fluids and it's so hard to try to train my body to drink water. I don't know why but the only time I'm ever thirsty is when I'm eating dinner, so that basically is the only time I drink any fluids is at dinner. I have a water bottle that I bring to work yet I only take a few sips a day out of it. Even while working out I don't drink that much! How can I fix this issue?

As per standards, you must not drink a lot of water but some of luke warm water is good.

Most of water you can drink is after 30 mins of food. In case of taking lot of fluid while eating, you miss food too.

That's interesting, I've never heard of drinking luke warm water. Unfortunately when I drink water I do prefer it to be iced. :(

Its ok to be iced, luke warm water is less hard, as water contains some salts all the time. Warmness decreases its strength & your body digests the intake of food nicely.

The best answer is to just do it. Get in the habit of drinking more water. Force yourself to do it. It is difficult at first, if you are not used to it, but the benefits will reward you!

Fix this issue by drinking nothing else. That's how I did it. Do not buy milk, soda, or anything. Just get water jugs and fill your water bottle up whenever you run out. Your body will eventually become accustomed to it. I've been doing this for years now, and I much prefer water than other drinks.

Also, to make it more of a scheduled habit, you could drink one bottle of water before each meal, and then drink throughout the meal as needed. That's also something I have done before.

@Roxabox Its amazing for you Chinese almost drink warm or normal water not cold. Water is so called a life. Every thing that is seen basically created from water. So our body need daily sufficient drinking water every day because it is necessary to maintain a healthy hydration.

@Roxabox: Drinking water should be very effective but it can be dangerous too.
I suggest you to drink more water before sunset and consume less water after sunset.
Plus, early in the morning when you wake up, trying to intake 2-3 liters and i guarantee you will not have any diseases throughout your life. Yes, i know it is tough to intake that much but you can start with one glass a week, 2 glass in next week, 3 glass in next months and so.
All the diseases work if and only if your stomach is not working properly and it needs water to be perfect to use.

Honestly, this is my problem before. I am not a frequent water drinker when I was younger. But as I get old, I felt the need to drink more water. This way, it can rehydrate my body as well as replenish it. I also need it for better digestion as I feel having some problems with digestion lately and often has LBM.

Experts say we should drink at least 8-10 glasses of water every day. I feel it varies from person to person and also on the weather condition. I drink water while eating food and also whenever I feel thirsty and I am sure that I meet the water requirement of my body.

You are right. You should drink everytime your body asks for it. You may also need it at times you never thought you should. But I do also agree with weather conditions. In my place where it is tropical, We need water everyday as it is almost hot everyday.

Our body needs a pure and clean water. It is advisable to drink 8 glasses of water every day. Drinking water can prevent a lot of diseases that we might get.

I usually listen to my body to check if I have enough water, but I always make it a point to drink at least 4 glasses of water everyday. This may differ based on the climatic conditions and my activity level. I think in your case you sweat very little and that is why your body does not demand frequent re-hydration. But it is not good to avoid or drinking too little water. My suggestion for you would be to drink at least 4 glass of water every day. Water works like a medicine and may cure many illnesses even without our knowledge.

I try to remind myself to drink water throughout the day although this does not always work out. Typically, I drink water when I am exercising or eating as this is when I feel thirsty. I sometimes get so engaged in my activities that I completely forget to drink water but basically I try to sip some water whenever I remember.

The whole "eights cups a day" thing isn't true. It's factual that humans should drink more water then they feel the need to, but generally you should just drink water when you wake up, when you're thirsty, and with meals. In the mornings especially, it always boosts my day and makes me feel fantastic.

For years, dieters have been drinking lots of water as a weight loss strategy.
While water doesn't have any magical effect on weight loss,
substituting it for higher calorie beverages can certainly help.

I think it is also good for diabetics. I heard it can help to at least lower blood sugar. I used to drink water after drinking soda or any sweets as it was advised.
