That sounds like folklore to me.  I know that I hydrate before beginning 
a day's hike, and again after lunch.  I mean a quart of water at least.  
I carry less, if any water and feel better.  I try to keep from ever 
having yellow pee...

Jeff, just Jeff

Also, he advises "Drink little water, a raisin under the tongue will help." when starting your hike each a.m.
