Hey Guys, I'm thinking of buying a brita water filter tomorrow...But are they really any good? I'v heard mixed reviews as to wether it actually makes a difference in taste/health benefits? Opinions please!! :) Ryan (more)
Recently i've been eating a lot of raw vegetables during the day and i've found my drinking water needs have gone considerably down, im starting to feel like vegetables & fruits apart from the obvious vitamins etc also act as natural water... (more)
I drink close to 4 gallons of water, spaced out fairly evenly throughout the day. This is about twice the amount recommended 8 cups of water a day. I was wondering if there is such a thing as drinking too much water? Or, more specifically, I know... (more)
i remember when i lived in india and occasionally ate with the locals at lunch - they all abstained from water while eating - at first this was tough because it was so spicy - later i realized this could be a good idea also fasting w/o water for... (more)
When I started eating this way, I had big trouble digesting. My chest would hurt, and my stomach would have sharp pains. These could be more severe issues that worked themselves out naturally. But, I did find that abstaining from water during... (more)
Just drink when you're thirsty. I never paid attention to the '8 glasses of water' some days I may have 2, others 10. It really depends. Humidity, activity level. Also, I drink loads when I'm thirsty, haha. Bad habit
I significantly decreased my water consumption a few months ago, trusting my thirst instead. The thing is that I also consume a lot of salt, which I believe is due to some degree of adrenal fatigue. Recently, I read that salt causes water... (more)
Our ancestors did not sip from water bottles ad libitum*. I imagine their habitats were near water sources and/or they managed with hydrating via alternative methods, i.e. from moisture-rich food. Consequently, they would have adapted to sparse... (more)
There were times when they had to cross an entire desert without water, it may be beneficial to go without water for extended periods, such as two weeks. To make it more realistic you can sit under a heat lamp for several hours a day.
I know I am asking a ton of questions tonight. I had two cups of coffee for the first time in months...Weeeee! So, everyone and their mother is telling me I need to drink water, at least half my body weight (about 65 oz) a day at the very least,... (more)
Okay this problem has really gotten to me. So I drink water pretty regularly throughout the whole day after I break a fast (I am not really thirsty during IF) and stay hydrated during activities too. But then, when dinner rolls around I am never... (more)
How much salt do you eat? Could be a water retention issue if your sodium intake is too low.
Hello there Paleohackers, So I have an interesting list of symptoms I've been trying to crack. They are spelled out in more detail in another post, but I've made an interesting discovery today, which I was wondering if anybody knew anything... (more)
AFAIK, there's no strict percentage. One of the reasons I like paleo so much is I don't have to focus on macronutrient ratios, just on eating actual real quality food within certain confines.
Hello! I've been doing Paleo with my two kids for the past month and am in love with it! My husband finally decided to fully jump on board this week and is doing great, but is really struggling with drinking water. He was mainly drinking Dr.... (more)
i ditched coffee because i gave up cream. tea and diluted wine are my treats now days. the rest of the time 99 percent of the time i drink carbon filtered water. i find it hard to swallow that some body doesn't like water. by the end of day one i... (more)
Most of my experience with fasting is for religious reasons, where I don't typically drink water. During a typical IF, do you drink water? How much? How often?
This is what Dr Oz says: Drinking Cold water after a meal = Cancer! Can you believe this? For those who like to drink cold water, this applies to you. It's nice to have a cold drink after a meal, however, the cold water will solidify the oily... (more)
I've been hearing for years that yellow pee is some sort of indicator of dehydration. Before paleo, I drank much less water but rarely had dark yellow pee. Since going strict paleo, I'm drinking about 8-10 glasses of water and tea per day, but my... (more)
Hi, my partner and I have recently started eating paleo...we are almost up to 3wks! One thing we have both noticed is that we don't feel the need to drink as much water as we used to. We used to both regularly drink around 2 litres a day. We... (more)
I've been eating Primal/Paleo for nine months. My diet has been shifting, somehow on it's own, towards pretty low carb. Recently, I get really thirsty, but I can't seem to slack my thirst, no matter how much or often I drink. I am 5'5, female,... (more)
Hey there, After this thread, I'm trying to relegate my mate habit to weekends, although I've found both good side-effects of it and contradictory information about the cancer risks. Extremes lead to sickness and suffering, as the indian sage... (more)
This seems like such a simplistic question, but how, why and when should we consume water? The generally accepted theory that rings true with me is to avoid drinking with meals, but in addition to this, should we be drinking as much water as we... (more)
