How Much Water Should You Drink Each Day?
Simple question with no easy answer.
💦💧Studies have produced varying recommendations over the past years. But your individual water needs depend on many factors, including your health, how active you are and where you live.
💦💧No single formula actually fits everyone. But knowing more about your body's need for fluids will help you estimate how much water to drink each day.
💦💧The adequate daily fluid intake is considered to be
- About 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of fluids a day for men
- About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids a day for women
💦💧You might need to modify your total fluid intake based on these factors:
- overall health
- pregnancy and breastfeeding
💦💧Your daily fluid intake is probably adequate if:
- You rarely feel thirsty
- Your urine is colorless or light yellow
