It's possible that you may be having trouble with absorption. This is actually common among strict practitioners of the Paleo diet. Sodium levels get too low and water just goes right through them. If that sounds like you, try adding a teaspoon of salt to your first bottle of water each day.
Boom! x2

Re: Hydration

I also say go see the doctor. A little blood work will let you know what's up

Re: Hydration

Well here's an update! I have taken Chris' advice with the salt and water in the morning. It has worked wonders! Absorption was definitely a factor. I still have a Dr appointment this thursday, but in the mean time the salt has helped significantly. The nutritionist that works for my organization (also collaborates with me) told me to keep at it as well. In the afternoon I would drink a lot of water without a lot in my stomach (I prefer to work out 2-3 hours after eating) and she said I should do the pinch of salt in my water in that period as well. Thanks and I will update you all on the Dr appt as well!
