Q: Would there be any benefit to drinking distilled water instead of regular? I was thinking with as much as I drink per day (1-1.5 gallons) there could be a lot of contaminates floating around. I use a Brita filter but I don't think I get near the purity of distilled. I've heard that distilled water provides a kind of "leaching" effect for pulling rejected minerals and other toxins from your system.
A: Some bodybuilders drink only distilled water the week before a contest to help with weight loss and water depletion. But I wouldn't recommend drinking it all the time. I agree with Lee Haney who always claimed that distilled water is "dead water"! Sodium free spring water is my choice and recommendation.
