I was told that I don't drink enough recently. I had not really thought about it. I drink an average of 2 standard water bottle sizes which I think in total is 1,000 ml (2.10 pints). This is on top of drinking other items I may have during the say such as coffee or tea, soda, or juice. Is that really not enough?

I think that it depends on how much you are drinking of other things. Soda and coffee both will dehydrate you and will require you to drink more so keep that in mind. I aim for double that amount but I mainly only drink water.

I don't drink enough water, I know that. I am not really a fan of how it tastes by itself which is why I drink mostly tea and juice. I try to limit how much soda I drink.

I only drink about 2 cups of water per day. And maybe a cup of juice and coffee.

That is not enough, I can tell you that. People say that your body will tell you when to drink - this is true - but your body will adjust if you don't drink enough and not tell you that you need more. You will show symptoms though. Dry skin, hair loss, digestive problems, water retention, among others.

That does seem low.

I drink double, if not triple what you drink most days. There are some days when I don't drink enough and I feel it. I have trouble sleeping, my joints hurt, my bowels slow down a lot.

I only drink when I feel like it. I don't force myself to drink more than my body needs.
