There are many reasons why people try to consume a lot of water and the primary concern is getting enough to replenish their needs, not be dehydrated, and make sure that they are flushing out toxins. However, some people take gallon jugs around with them everywhere and while this seems like a good idea, it might be overdoing things a little bit.
Most of the time, drinking 1 gallon of water is a good amount, but it does not take into account all of the other water that we get in our food. There is a lot of water in food and especially in fruits and vegetables. After all, there is a fruit called watermelon!
So next time you are thinking about how much water you drink, also consider about the food that is in your diet. Is your food giving you the nourishment that you need or at least a large portion of it? For some people, it is not easy to deal with an entire gallon (or even 3 liters, which is recommended) of water per day. It is just physically too much for them to consume without feeling uncomfortable.
If this sounds like something that is true for you, then it is probably a good idea to keep in mind your diet and try to get water that way more often. When you are drinking water, you are going to find out that you feel a lot better and your body is far more revitalized.
At the end of the day, there are many reasons you want to have enough water, but it just makes less sense to force yourself to drink more than is necessary. Most people don’t know that the majority of their skin is made of water and our brain needs high quantities to function. But that doesn’t mean you need to keep chugging on water so much so that it makes you sick!
