Just not thirsty...
Maybe I'm a bit strange, but I've never been a "thirsty" person. Often I'll drink 1/2 glass of juice in the morning (unless I eat cereal, in which case, the milk in the cereal is PLENTY of liquid) and then not want liquid again until after supper (usually a glass of water). Yes - I often don't drink anything with lunch, or if I do, it's literally a sip out of a water bottle. Of course I drink if I've exercised, but I find that to even have more than 2 glasses a day of any liquid (probably 3-4 servings) I start to just feel like "ugh, can I stop drinking now?!" I literally have to force myself to swallow it.
I know getting the recommended daily of 8 servings of water seems to be important, but is it so important that I should force myself? Anyone out there just not a thirsty person like me? I've asked my doctor about it and she says that as long as I'm not dehydrated (which I'm not) to just do what feels right. With even my small servings of liquid, my urine is usually a very light color, which makes me think that I'm still flushing myself appropriately. If it were darker, I'd be more concerned.
Thanks for any and all advice/comments!
