I Drank Absolutely Nothing But Water For 7 Days. This Is How My Body Changed

by ILEANA PAULES-BRONET

In almost every single health-related article I’ve written here at LittleThings, there’s one home treatment method that always appears: drink enough water.

But what is enough water? How many bottles of water a day should I drink? And is “enough” water actually reasonable? I decided to find out.

Staying hydrated can aid with everything from skin health to kidney stones, and can help you feel more energetic, awake, and alert throughout the day.

 

Celebrities like Gwyneth Paltrow and Jennifer Aniston swear by drinking bottles and bottles of water every day.

Plus, it’s not like I’m getting a surgical procedure done or laser-removing all of my body hair. Drinking a few more bottles of water is probably the easiest thing I can do to look more like a celeb.

But now, if I’m given a choice of water or something else (soda, juice, etc.), I’ll probably choose the non-water option. I know water is healthier, but let’s be real, it’s just not as yummy.

 

In an effort to find out how reasonable it is to drink the doctor-recommended amount of water (that I recommend to our readers so often), I decided to cut out all other drinks and only drink water for a week.

 

Here’s what happened.

According to the Mayo Clinic, different people need to drink different amounts of water each day, depending on how healthy you are, what the temperature/climate is, and how much you exercise.

 

The general recommendation is for people to drink six to eight glasses of water or other fluids each day. That comes to 48 to 64 ounces of water each day.

 

Because there are eight fluid ounces in a cup, you should drink eight cups of water per day.

Most disposable water bottles are around 16 ounces, so that would mean you should drink three to four bottles of water each day. Continue…
