    I just realized due to this thread that I only drink four different things on anything approaching a regular basis: Coke, water, milk, and beer.

    This is mildly distressing.

    It's 8.30 in the morning and I just got home.
    Drunk.
    So no, not at the moment,
    But I usuallyl drink 2l of water a day, so I'm well hydrate most of the time

    Right now, no. Normally I'm pretty well hydrated though.

    I don't drink soda as much as I used to and it seems like at most I drink a can of week, rather than several. Mostly water with every meal.

    As such, I've been losing weight quite rapidly.

    A normal meal will hydrate you just as well as a drink of water.
    Water just does it faster but then it goes out again faster.

    The famous study which said you had to have 2l(?) of water a day included water from food.

    I rely on Dr. Pepper for liquid sustenance.

    Tea at school lunch because they hauled out the soda machine.

    Interesting artical on the role of food in rehydration. Some interesting graphs showing how food and drink improved rehydration in link.

    Most of the time I drink water, except for the occasional Dr Pepper every so often or if I go and eat out. Sometimes I think I drink too much water as I think I go to the toilet too frequently, sometimes twice an hour.

    I probably drink too much coffee to be properly hydrated. I believe if your urine is clear that means that there's a higher proportion of water in it (that could mean that you're well hydrated or that your kidneys aren't reabsorbing enough water (e.g. Consuming a diuretic)).

    I used to be, but my office sells pop for 25 cents, and i've started drinking it again to stay awake during the ol' afternoon food coma. Not good for hydration, not good for my training.

    Absolute . Not the water intoxication thing, but the claim that you are overhydrated if your piss is white.

    As the wiki article notes, overhydration only occurs under extremely specific circumstances, and it is not something an ordinary person should have to bother with.

    I think I manage to keep myself pretty well hydrated. Last year probably not so much, because I drank quite a lot of soft drink (in comparison to the rest of my life), i.e. maybe 3L a week, averaged out. But I haven't been lately, and during the summer have been drinking water almost continuously as I sit in front of my computer.

    I drink huge amounts of Coca Cola and Sprite, I drink about 1 liter of Cola a day and the rest milk,If I think the secret ingredient is some kind of drug, I have to drink at least a glass of soda a day, I get tiered quickly and my saliva tastes sour and bad if I dont drink some soda...but that might be from the sugar content,

    I drink cammel style. I constantly drink huge amounts of water and my urine is allways clear.

    I don't think of it I just naturally like to chugg.

    Replace Coke with black tea, and it describes me, so you can't be that bad off.
