Much much nicer skin (less breakouts, less dry/ flaky, less oily t-zone, better colour- not so ashey looking), dark circles under eyes lighter, better digestion,better sleep (because more water, less cola, less caffeine I think), lost a stone (because much less hungry), more energy, less painful periods, shinier hair.
That's all just off the top of my head. There's probably more but it's the best thing I've done for a long time.
Oh one more, saved money, water is by far the cheapest thing to drink, even taking into account the cost of filters.
I find it fills me up when I am feeling peckish and I have lost weight. I drink around 3L of water a day (up from about 750ml) and my skin is now far better, my eyes look brighter and I just feel good.
Less bloating and less headaches. I now drink about 1.5 litres a day (huge improvement as all I drank before was coffee). I drink an extra 1.5 on gym days but that's only twice a week. I don't buy bottled and it's not even filtered just straight from the tap. Haven't noticed a big difference in my skin but then I have rosacea so likely stuck with this mess of a face, water or no water
I look at the difference in my drought ridden house plants with drooping leaves after they've had a drink and think that's what water does to the cells in my body (if I drank more of it!) - plump up the skin/lessen appearance of wrinkly bits
Better for kidneys - you wee a lot at first and it seems pointless to drink it in the first place but apparently that settles down after a couple of weeks
I always drink loads on holiday and feel loads better for it - more energy etc
"And as other nutritionists of the time noted, any shortfall in water intake could be made up through the consumption of beverages such as coffee, tea, milk, or soft drinks; one need not specifically drink water only in the form of water."
