A journalist working for the ‘Thrilist’ portal decided to complete a rather strange experiment. To be specific, he decided to drink one gallon of water on a daily basis. He finished the experiment and in the end he was amazed by the results. While he was doing the experiment, he was writing down everything. Continue reading and get familiar with his story.
Day 1: Let the party begin
He didn’t know how many glasses are in a gallon, so he purchased a plastic bottle of one gallon and carried it with him. He immediately knew that it is not going to be easy since it is a lot of water. However, he was so concentrated on attaining his objective that it was hard for him to concentrate on something else.
Day 5: Need to urinate every 20 minutes
The human body needs water, and that is not up for discussion since it is 60 % water. Nevertheless, consuming 1 gallon of water is not something that is usual for humans. In order to drink one gallon of water in one day, you need to drink it all the time, even when you do not feel thirst at all. This reduces your appetite and you start eating less, still you feel satiated all the time. To add, you also feel a persistent need for urinating. He recalls that he needed to go the toilet every 20 minutes.
Day 10: Feel better
The journalist recalls that he began feeling fresh, especially in the mornings. Before starting this experiment, he needed a cup of coffee to help him start the day. Now, he felt energized and fresh even without the coffee. Furthermore, he started feeling more beautiful and he thought that something has changed in his appearance. It may have been just the placebo effect, but his skin and hair had in fact become shinier. However, it was quite difficult for him to carry all the water with him and many people thought of him that he is a weirdo. Nevertheless, he was determined to succeed.
Day 15: Feeling full with energy
He was definitely feeling more invigorated. He almost didn’t drink coffee, but he also didn’t feel the need for it. This was a big change for him since he used to drink three or more cups of coffee a day. Additionally, he noticed that he had become slightly faster. Furthermore, he also slept better. He began feeling thirst if he hadn’t drunk water for a period of time. He felt like his body had adapted to his new lifestyle.
Day 20: Other people started complimenting him
There were various changes from the start of the experiment, but one thing that was constant was the need to frequently visit the toilet. He continued going to the toilet, but he noticed that his urine had begun to be crystal clear. All the more, his girlfriend also said that his skin looked clearer and much better and that he was more energized. It may sound odd, but he started feeling really happy and got used to drinking significant amounts of water.
Day 30: Clean and free
Day 30 was also the last day of the experiment. He still felt the need to go to the toilet all the time, but now he also felt thirsty all the time. He adds that he thinks that one gallon of water per day is slightly too much, but he has no intention to stop drinking water since he has felt the positive effects it can bring. It is of vital importance to discover the right amount of water for you and start consuming it right away, you will soon feel great.
