Review: Gallon Of Water Per Day For A Month!


Well, this makes me thirsty…

A month ago, I came across an article describing a woman who drank a gallon of water per day. She lost weight, decrease her waistline by an inch and experienced remarkable improvements to her skin. The bags under her eyes disappeared and she looked ten years younger.

I was skeptical, but sometimes you need to try things for yourself.

And so I did.

As promised, I’ve been drinking a gallon of water per day for the past month. As many of you reminded me, too much water can be dangerous. But with Mayo Clinic recommendations of 13 cups of water for men (with more if you exercise) and nine for women, the 16 cups in a gallon of water should fall within the margin of safety. Of course, it’s always wise to check with your doctor.

Each morning, I filled up a gallon jug of water. Throughout the day, I used the jug to monitor my progress. Of course, eating in a restaurant made the science less exact – so, in some instances, I had to use my judgement and estimate. Nonetheless, I completed the challenge for the full month.

So, what’s the verdict?

First, I was surprised how easy it is to drink a gallon of water per day. It sounds and looks like a lot, but I’m pretty sure I drink almost a gallon on a daily basis even without the challenge. Truthfully, it probably only amounted to an extra few cups. And the only change that I noticed was having to get up once or twice during the night to pee.

All in all, I don’t look or feel any different.

Perhaps the woman in the article was severely dehydrated when she started the challenge. If that’s the case, it’s likely that the challenge did provide some pretty substantial benefits. But if you’re already fairly well hydrated like myself, you might not notice any changes.

Having said all of that, I really do like the idea of having a gallon jug of water to better track my hydration. Sometimes, sipping water isn’t a priority and the jug is a good reminder to drink up. For that reason, I may continue with the challenge when I’m home or when it makes sense.
