A friend sent me that "Water vs. Coke" email thing that's been going around for awhile now, and it got me thinking. I know I'm one of those 37% (according to that email) with virtually no thirst mechanism, or one that gets misinterpreted by the brain as hunger - which is probably a prime factor why I'm severely overweight. A lot of my constant sinus congestion and pressure are also a side effect of dehydration. Wouldn't be surprised if the same's true for the fatigue and joint pain, especially in my knees. I was playing a game on Gazerwolf's PSP last night before bed and had to stop because my eyes were so dry I couldn't focus.
So ... how do you force yourself to drink that much water when you don't ever feel thirsty?
