I drink around 4-5 liters of water a day to stay hydrated. And most of the time, my stomach is so full of water that it makes my stomach appear fat.
How to handle brahs?
the truth is that water having no energy is a lie. even in the cleanest water there are billions of bacteria and other single-celled organism you digest and will make you fat. estimates are that 1 liter of water has around 200kcal.
CAn confirm. I actually used to do "water fasts" where I wouldn't eat anything but WATER for 3 days, eat 1000 calories the next day, 3 days of water only again. I actually ended up MAINTAINING my weight even after 2 months of this. I switched to pepsi (diet) and started losing weight rapidly, even though I started eating daily. All I did was stop consuming water.
tl;dr, water has shitloads of calories because of the bacteria-rich environment.
wow, if this is true, I feel like fucking lied to.
I'm drinking about easily 3l of water from the tap, as I mix them into shakes and such. About a liter is the coke zero I consume.
Thanks for the insight. Gonna check that shit out, and stop drinking tap water.
Yeah, I noticed the same thing. Didn't do it for nearly as long, though. It also helps if it's relatively warm water (don't quote me on this, but heat typically attracts more bacteria) .
Is this actually true? I noticed I got hella lean over like 2 weeks once when I didn't pay my water bull. Basically my son got a hold of my phone and went to one of the phone sex online things and used up all my money. Anyway, essentially I didn't drink any water for 2 weeks and dropped 10% bodyfat in those 2 weeks.
Basically, water has around 200-500 calories per liter, cut it out and reap the benefits.
OP be careful a fitizen yesterday nearly overdosed and died on water.
He drank 8 litres in an hour while running and had to call the poison hotline.
His brain was swelling due to the overdose on h20
6L is known to kill people yet he drank 8L.

can confirm that water contains approximately 200kcal per litre. yes, it does contain calories, but a lot of the calories are used for basic bodily functions. too much water can cause bloating.

Pretty much this.
I'm actually getting my phd in chemistry soon, in class atm. All I can say is
water is h2o + bacteria mass of h2o + mass of bacteria = 2.0g/moL + 35.0g/moL.
For people who don't know what that implies, basically it means water has at minimum .25kcal per mL. (likely over 1kcal per mL in many cases, though)
