Why are SAD people so obsessed with water?

Am I right when I say water only does your body good up until hydration...after that it's useless?

I agree that drinking ONLY WATER or tea is important when you're thirsty but why do some people insist on chugging 8 glasses a a day? Water fills you up? Water most definitely does not fill me up.

Does anybody agree with my on this? Or is there actually benefits to drinking water when you're not thirsty?

Yes, somewhat hot in here in India... but I have PCOS and exhibit symptoms since I was very small... one of them, I believe, is I feel hot & discomfort and sweat in weather others are quite easy with. Could be something to relate, but I feel no different about water intake even in winter. And didn't get the second part... dry food like?

You almost have to admire it. "Let's make bottled water." "That's stupid, no one needs/wants that." "Then we'll just convince an entire populace it's necessary." The way they can create a market is impressive, apart from the morality.

Just curious, do you live in a hot climate? And do you eat mostly "dry" foods?

Blame Coca Cola and PepsiCo - biggest sellers of bottled water. It's all about marketing.

Twenty years ago bottled water would have been considered wasteful and ostentatious, and it's not like people were dehydrated all the time.

Seems like just about every article on losing weight, dieting, lifestyle changes, exercise, etc. has a bullet point on drinking water. Perhaps SAD folks talk about it more because they are dieting (restricting calories) and not making a lifestyle and macro-nutrient shift. Most people that are dieting seem to look to something like sipping water to keep them from snacking/cheating as ell. I would also suggest that many supposed SAD folks that are starting a diet aren't in fact coming from a SAD diet but rather an everything processed diet including (frozen foods, sugary snacks, processed chips/crackers, fast food, etc.) tons of soda, sugary coffees, and juices. Those folks do need more water.

Why are SAD obsessed with low fat? Why are SAD eaters obsessed with low salt? Why are SAD eaters obsessed with low cholesterol?

They are told they must be by people who don't know enough.

Actually water helps me with my autoimmune conditions, my leg pain at night is correlated to how much water I drink. I don't really ever drink 8 bottles of water but 4 usually helps. It probably helps remove toxins

Actually, they say that many times that we feel hungry, we're just thirsty. Our brain does not send very distinct messages for thirst and hunger. Personally, I don't drink much water, and I know that I should be drinking more.

I make sure to drink 3-4 ltrs of water. I used to drink very less before... in likes of 1 ltr a day. When I upped my water intake, I found it made tremendous change to my BO issue. I rarely wait to get thirsty to drink water.

And now if I slip down the 3 ltrs mark for a couple of days or more in a row, I get acidity or constipation easily. Think my body's way of warning me to hydrate it well...
