How much water are you drinking?


How much water should I drink in a day?  That’s a great question to which many people feel they have the answer.  Maybe you’ve heard the saying “8 glasses of water a day” or “8 by 8” referencing the amount of water you should guzzle down before 8 PM.  The latter is a great start, but many of us are not getting close to the recommended amount.

According to the Mayo Clinic, water comprises 60 percent of our body weight and plays an important role in keeping our body functioning.  “It flushes toxins from your vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells and helps provide a moist environment for your ear, nose and throat tissues”.

So how much should you drink daily?  While there are many factors to take into account such as elevation and climate, a good daily average to shoot for is roughly 3 liters of total beverages for men and 2.2 liters of total beverages for women.  It may seem like a tall task to drink that much liquid and we clearly don’t want that all to be sugary drinks, but drinking all that water can really do some good for your health.
