I have just started training 3 days a week and consuming around 3000 calories. I'm going to be using whey protein and creatine and wondered how much water I should be drinking?
I've read about a gallon but then again read never more than 4 litres?
Can anyone help?
Thanks chub, I was worried that I might flush out the vitamins/ protein etc if I drank too much but if you're on nearly two gallons then I guess it'd fine
We are what we repeatedly do. Therefore, excellence is not an act, but a habit.
Good tip, keep it clear!
Usually when your pee is yellow, it means that vitamins are being flushed out of your body that aren't being used. B vits in particular. It doesn't necessarily mean you aren't drinking enough. Keep in mind if you take a multi, it will make your pee yellow green. I usually drink a gallon or more a day. 1.5 when I used to take creatine, but that has been a long time ago.
I would say 2 L or just about that per day.
I have brothers who are deep into working out and that's usually what they take.
They are on all sorts of supplements and drink gallons of water!!
I would jus say drink as much fluids as you can theres no harm in h20
At minimum, 1 oz H2O for every 2 lbs of body weight.
