Many of us have been raised with the ideology we should aim for eight glasses of water per day. The golden standard of hydration, we're told.
Unfortunately, there's no scientific evidence to support the old eight a day. According to most doctors, we shouldn't drink more than our body wants and that the discomfort we feel when we drink too much is a protective mechanism. This is simply to prevent over-hydration and we should listen to our bodies when we feel that sensation.
