Is it really necessary to drink so much water, I find it difficult to drink 2liter a day or does it depend on the area you live in.
I try not to eat snakes anymore, instead I would have 6 meals threw out the day. I try and keep them all the same “volume”. But if a graving hits me I would snack on peanuts.
I find fruits tends to spike me a lot
Have you guys any ideas on how to improve on this

I would think hydration is simple in one form; drink when you're thirsty. I would also think that one's hydration needs are diametrically opposed to how much water their body eliminates. Simple water loss involves breath; sweat; and urination. After that...the need for replacement goes up depending on your system's usage.

I suppose there's a standard for daily hydration...but I've never searched it out, other than the old standby, drink 8 glasses of water a day. I've never been a fan of just drinking water all day just because I'm supposed to. I drink when I'm thirsty...no more, no less.

Water, being the universal solvent, I think is very important in out-of-normal situations where the body needs to flush itself. 2 liters a day doesn't sound like overkill to me. You could always cut down on your volume and see how it affects you.

I was reading somewhere that you are suppose to drink half your body weight in oz. So I weigh 230lb, I should drink 115oz of water a day. Thats almost a gallon, I probably could do that if I wanted to spend all of my time in the little room.
