    I weighed myself the other day and had lost a 8 lbs since I weighed in just two weeks earlier. I was feeling a bit dehydrated when I weighed in.

    What should I add to that for water?

    uhh... how about just not dehydrating yourself. There is no way to really know how much water weight you are missing.

    Getting dehydrated is BAD. It is a total dis-service to one's health. The body cannot function (properly) without sufficient amounts of water intake. If one wants to loose weight, one should decrease fats and carbs, eat smaller and more frequent meals, and drink loads of water.
    Just saying.

    I agree with both of you. Thanks. It wasn't my intention to get dehydrated.

    I weight 5 pounds less in the morning when I get up than I do in the afternoon.

    rule of thumb: If you are starting to get thirsty, your body is signaling that its starting to get dehydrated. Try to drink water BEFORE you start actually getting thirsty.

    Drink enough water and your body will balance itself out.

    This is what I always heard too.. I drink so much fluid it's rare that I ever really get thirsty.. I just drink a lot of liquid by habit I guess...
