    Thumbs up The most effecient way I've found to get your water intake for the day...

    I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I've always had problems figuring out just how much water I was drinking on any given day. Not any more. What I did was buy 4 different colored 32oz Nalgene bottles, a water filter that screws on to your faucet (I use a DuPont digital readout one that lasts for 200 gallons - it cost about $30 from Wal-Mart). All 4 Nalgene's will equal one full gallon - filter the water, stick it in the fridge, and start a rotation going. If you get the timing down you should have cool water anytime you want it, regardless of how fast you're drinking it. A side benefit to the Nalgene's is that you aren't throwing away dozens of water bottles a week... it definitely helps the environment. It might even be worth your time to buy a nalgene to keep in your locker at the gym.

    Oh, you might check out "Splash Guards" for the Nalgene's. They make it a lot easier to drink out of if you're walking or in the gym, and they're about $2 each. Hope this helps someone else.

    Not a bad idea either! The only thing I would be worried about with that would be portability... is it easy for you to bring them anywhere you're going, or do you find it has to be drunk only at your apt/house? With the nalgenes you can just take one from the fridge and walk out the front door.

    I don't think the issue was ever "not knowing how to drink water". What's being brought up is an accurate way to measure how much water is being consumed at any given point. It's extremely easy for most of us to overguess the amount of water we're drinking - just like the average american underestimates the number of calories they're eating. I don't know about you, but I like knowing for sure that I'm getting the amount of water I need every day based on my goals. After all, you wouldn't say "just eat a lot of food and your body will tell you when you cant eat anymore at a sitting....its simple", would you? Of course not - that would be a ridiculous diet strategy. Why should it be different for water?

    A nalgene is a 32 oz water bottle made of polycarbonate plastic.. it won't pick up odors, it is almost impossible to break or shatter, and it can handle sub-zero tems as well as boiling temps. Put simply, it's a water bottle.
