    Water for abs mealplan

    Just wondering if the water on the abs meal plan means 6 glasses for the day, or that you need to drink at least 6 glasses?

    Can you reword your question? I am a little confused...

      In the mealplan it says 6 glasses of water.
      Red fox wonders if:

      6 Glasses of water MAXIMUM / day
      6 Glasses MINIMUM / day

      I myself started to wonder that when I looked it up.
      Water is water right? But sometimes you get this talk about people retaining water.
      Then again there's a rule of a minimum amount of water you should take (probably even more when exercising)

      So either one could possibly be true with my own limited knowledge

        I don't see how drinking more than 6 glasses could be detrimental. I will say however, that bodybuilders (before a photoshoot) will intentionally dehydrate themselves in order to make their musculature stand out. It's not healthy, but they do it. I am 99.99% sure that the meal plan is calling for 6 glasses minimum. With lower carb dieting, your body will shed water, and water retention (to my knowledge) is caused by excessive carbs and salt.

          Too much water intake is bad, but it depends on how much you need to begin with. And that depends on how much water you lose (in urine, feces, breath, sweat, spitting, crying, etc.). A normal adult should not have much trouble drinking more than 6 cups, since scientifically speaking the standard person spends 2000 kcalories per day and the clinical recommendation is to consume as many mililiters of water as kcalories are spent per day. So 2000 mL equals to approximately 8.5 cups of water. If you spend more kcalories than that, because you are bigger or sweat when you exercise, then you will need more water.

            Drink as much water as you like. Water is healthy, it cools the body, it does everything you want and need, especially when physically training, and it has zero calories. You should be urinating clear or very light yellow to show you are hydrated. If you go to the bathroom and it's heavy yellow, orange, or dark and you're not taking a multivitamin, you need to drink more.

            Water should be, under all circumstances, free access. Have as much and more as you like.
