Does anyone flavor their water if so what do you use? How much water do you try to drink daily?

I usually drink several glasses plain and at work I use the MIO except i get the off brand at the grocery store or dollar store and use it because it has no calories and doesnt use the aspertame for a sweetner.

I usually drink about 50oz or so at work and then another 30-40 at home.

I've tried flavoured water, but I prefer plain water and it must be room temperature! On average, I drink anywhere between 64oz-88oz usually. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

I just drink plain water, I don't really like it flavored. I try to drink at least 64 oz/day, but usually more.

almost always plain water for me, sometimes I will put sliced lemon or cucumber in it in the summer time. Lately I've been only drinking about 2 quarts as I'm also drinking a quart of herbal tea daily. Usually I aim for 3 quarts to a gallon a day.

I try to drink at least 8 cups of water a day - usually end up drinking between 10 and 12 though. I will flavor my water sometimes. I use Dasani flavor drops as they are 0 calories and don't contain aspertame. I think they taste better than the Mio drops too.

I drink somewhere between 8 and 12 glasses of water a day. I have to have mine very cold. I will sometimes add lemon to my water but I also prefer plain water.

Thank you *Kiliki* for my beautiful siggy

I try to drink about 5 8oz glasses a day. Sometimes I'm able to drink more it just depends. I drink it plain....the only thing I drink is water....and coffee.

I like mio but I don't buy it very often. I almost always drink plain water. I don't know how much I drink because I tend to drink a lot when I work out but not as much when I don't. I drink at least 3 large cups a day which are 12 oz so maybe 36 oz. Probably not as much as I should drink. Need to work on this.
