    I probably drink more coffee, tea and milk than water. I don't seem to need nearly as much since eating PB style. I usually drink most of my water after a workout or in the morning after I've had a few adult beverages...

    Due to the season all I drink latley is apple cider or my usualy crystal light. Yea I know it has crap in it, It's poison, I'm going to hell etc etc, but It's sterile and I like the taste.

    Probably a gallon of liquids a day.

    but the past couple of days i have been a little sick, and i'm pushing the green tea to soothe my aching throat. that got me thinking, how much do you all drink (water, tea, coffee...primal liquids) on a daily basis, and is there an amount we should be consuming?
    PrimalRob,

    There is a correct answer that is extremely logical. There are too many variables to specify the number of glasses per day, because of the foods you are eating, room temp, exercise, etc.

    Simply look at the color of your urine. If it is a very light yellowish, then your water intake is JUST RIGHT. If you see it turning a darker yellow, or a very dark yellow, you must increase your water intake. What could be easier?

    Best to all,
    Grizz

    Almost none. Mostof my liquid intake is green tea, though I probably drink at least two liters of that a day.

    I generally suggest active people drink 1/2 their body weight in pounds in fluid ounces of water every day. I weight 160 lbs. Using that formula I would be brinking 80 ounces of fluids per day. That's 5 quarts a day. That includes all coffee, tea and Juice one might consume.

    I drink about 6-8 glasses of water a day plus 2-3 cups of tea.

    I pretty much go on the drink-when-thirsty theory rather than intentionally swilling as much water as possible.
    Ditto.
