A “Thrilist” journalist decided to drink a gallon of water every day for a period of one month, as an experiment to see if there will be any changes in his health and life in generall.
He ended up being very surprised by the results.
He was writing down his 30 day-journey, and in this post we present you his story.
1st Day – Let the Party Begin
The man got a gallon plastic bottle as he had no idea how many glasses are in a gallon. Looking at this huge bottle of water, he knew it’s not going to be an easy task at all. Nevertheless, he was fully determined and concentrated on achieving this goal so he couldn’t concentrate on anything else but this. He carried his huge water bottle with him everywhere.
5th Day – Urinating Every 20 Minutes
Although the human body is consisted of 60% of water and needs water on a daily basis, a gallon of water a day is nowhere near the typical amount consumed by people. To succeed drinking this amount in one day, you have to drink even when you are not thirsty, so practically all the time throughout the day. This makes you feel satiated all the time, your appetite reduced, so consequently you start eating less. In addition, you feel constant need for urinating, like this man who had to visit the toilet every 20 minutes.
10th Day – Feel Better
He recalls how he used to need a cup of coffee in the morning to help him start the day. Now, he woke up feeling fresh and energized, without the need for coffee. Moreover, he started noticing changes in his appearance and he began feeling more beautiful. His hair and skin have become shinier. Although it was hard for him to carry the bottle of water with him everywhere, for which some saw him as a weirdo, his determination to succeed was greater.
15th Day – Feeling Full with Energy
The man felt he was revitalized. He used to drink 3 or more cups of coffee per day, but now he didn’t feel the need for it, so this was quite a big change for him. Furthermore, he slept better and also become a bit faster. His body started adapting to his new lifestyle, so he was feeling thirsty if he hadn’t consumed water for a while.
20th Day – Receiving Compliments
The persistent journalist who had to go to the toilet very often noticed his urine started being crystal clear. His girlfriend complimented him on his clear and better skin, and on his increased energy. He began feeling happy and satisfied, and he got used to drinking the huge amounts of water.
30th Day – Clean and Free
He still had needs to urinate all the time, but on the last day of his experiment, the journalist was thirsty all the time. Although a gallon of water on a daily basis is a bit too much, he adds that he doesn’t think of stopping this newly acquired habit. The reason is the many positive effects he felt when drinking this amount of water.
The most important thing is to find out the proper amount of water for your body, and to start drinking it as soon as possible to feel the benefits.
