2 gallons of water? That sounds like you spend your days pretty mych drinking water. You must be generically huge.
Ha you are correct, I have foregone a life in order to satiate my hydration issues. No man it’s not too hard. I have a couple pitchers that are a gallon each and one half gallon. I fill one with ice and water, one with water and some crystal lite type stuff(store brand, just as good) and if I’m on the ball the 1/2 gallon with green tea. I’ve always been a big drinker of fluids with meals, usually 32-48 oz worth and it’s simply a matter of having water/crystal lite/green tea in front of me all day. If I’m reading I’ve got the pitcher next to me, if I’m at my computer I’ve got one sitting there. If it’s there I’ll drink it. It sounds stupid, but already having it filled up makes a world of difference of whether or not I will get the water down. Oh but I do piss about 500 times a day haha, but I’d rather be safe than sorry in this game.
Lots of water also means waking up at night which for means another chance to get more protein in. [/quote]
agreed, go pick up a handy half gallon water bottle, and fill it up with water and carry it around through out the day, flavor it if you like, and youll be surprised how much you end up drinking if its right in front of you. i also back up what has already been stated 1-1.5g per lbs. if you are dinking enough water, protein will only turn into energy if you take in “to much”. remember 188.8.131.52. four calories per protien, your body knows whats its doing, trust it.
