Drink a glass of water with every meal. Drink a glass between every meal. Drink one in the morning, and one before bed. Size of glass depends on male vs female, active vs sedentary, etc. For an active guy, should be around 1 pint. Honestly, just never let yourself become thirsty, and if your pee isn't practically clear, you should be drinking more. It'll be a little darker first thing in the morning because you dehydrate during sleep. Not a lot you can do about that.

Quick thread hijack: Is drinking green tea effectively the same as water? I drink water as well obviously but can the tea be counted towards the daily total? Does it need to be revised down for any reason?

>>20005792 As far as I'm aware, the only difference would be the EXTREMELY slight diuretic effect of the caffeine in the tea, but it is negligible in comparison to the amount of water absorbed. Of course this is assuming you're drinking unsweetened brewed green tea, not the Arizona "green tea" syrup you can buy by the gallon at the grocery store.

>>20005792 Tea should be fine, but some teas are diuretics (they make you pee more), so google your specific type of tea.

>>20005834 Loose leaf organic green tea, nothing added but boiled tap water. I'm not even usually one of those organic crazies, but an extra dollar for a month's supply makes it worthwhile in my head.
