30 Day Water Challenge: drink 1 gallon / 3.8 liters of water each day

What is the 30 Day Water Challenge?You start the 30 day water challenge by slowly increasing your water intake day by day, until you reach the point where you drink 1 gallon / 3.8 liters of water per day. You continue drinking 1 gallon / 3.8 liters of water until the 30 days are over.

No sweetened beverages nor alcohol are allowed for this period. You can have one glass of alcoholic beverage per week if you must. Just don’t count the alcohol into your daily water consumption.

Do NOT drink your entire day’s worth of water all at once

Increase your water intake gradually. Now that you start to drink more water, first you must train your bladder to adjust to your new goal of drinking 1 gallon/3.8 liters of water per day. It might take your body time to adjust, but in 1-2 weeks your bladder will become adjusted to the increased water intake.

What is the 30 Day Water Challenge?Do NOT drink your entire day’s worth of water in one take. Water poisoning is a real thing! If you drink more than 0.21 gallons/0.8 liter of water in an hour, you are risking water poisoning. Water poisoning happens when you flush out electrolytes that your body needs. Slowly increase your water intake and distribute your set water goal drinking throughout the day. If you have healthy kidneys, they filter 0.21 – 0.26 gallons/0.8-1 liter of water per hour, so drink less than that to avoid water poisoning.
