    Have you ever wondered why you're told to drink 8, 8oz. glasses of water a day? Have you tried and it difficult to do, then felt guilty? For those who are disciplined and drink that amount and maybe even more, how many trips do you make to the bathroom during the night because of it? Well, some experts question where this 8-8 rule came from and don't think it's necessary for many of us to drink that much water. In fact, they think that most of us get by reasonably well with half that amount. Read this for more information. It just might make a difference in your daily routine.

    Good question Queen. If you drink or eat anything 3 hours before going to bed, chances are you will have to go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. You can never drink too much water, but if you eat before you go to bed the food will raise your blood sugar level and cause you to have to urinate at night.

    I've always thought that was too much. Mainly because I don't like drinking water. I probably should, but it's so hard to drink all that water. I doesn't taste good to me unless I'm really thirsty. I'm gonna try to drink more though because it is best. 8-8oz. glasses...I don't know if I can do that, but at least 4....hopefully. Thanks for the info.
