The formula to calculate water need is ... Take your weight as ounces divide by 2 and drink that amount od water throughout the day. Example. You weigh 150 pounds, 150/2=75, so you drink 75 ounces of water.

I must drink like two little glasses of water a day. That is really not enough, but I'm never thirsty. I should be careful because when I am old, It's gonna even more important.

Water is an essential component of the body. Without water the whole body will fail. Water constitues about the 65% mass. Blood circulating in the body is component of water only, excreatory system is managed by water, digestion is controlled by water. If our body is so much dependent on water then we should always drink our. Whenever my lips feel dryness, I go and drink 2-3 glasses of water. Dehydration can lead to many problems such as bad stomach, indigestion, gastric problems, skin problems etc. In winters, we should at least drink 5-7 glasses of water and in summer at least 9-12 glasses of water per day. It will help us to retain the water contents which are lost in the process of sweating, urination, etc. Drink more water and be healthy.

I normally take 1 to 1 1/2 litres of water during winter and 2 to 2 1/2 litres of water during summer. Earlier I used to have morning giddiness and my yoga teacher advised me to take water. After I started drinking more water in the morning, I feel better throughout the day.

I drink about 6 glasses a day. Sometimes a few more if I excercise or moving about at work. I've noticed the amount of water I have been drinking lately due to the hot California climate.

If you hate it because of no taste then add lemon to it... after all lemon is good for giving relief from tiredness...

About 500 - 1000 ml in a day further, i would like you to read the article below, it is very important: The Truth About Water All over the world, people are searching for it, drilling for it, selling it or standing in line waiting for it. 70% of the earth’s surface is covered with water, making it the most common substance on earth. Approximately 60 to 70% of the rural population in the developing world have neither access to a safe and convenient source of water nor a satisfactory means of waste disposal. Every living thing needs water and every living thing is made of at least some water; e.g., a chicken is about 75% water and a pineapple is about 80% water. More facts: 1. Humans take in over 16,000 gallons of water during their lifetime and on average 2.5 quarts a day. 2. Experts speculate that by 2000, the world’s consumption of water will double from what it was in the 1980s. 3. Since only 3% of the water on earth is freshwater, and 97% of the water is trapped in glaciers, most of the water on earth is not easily available. Thank you; Wissam17

I usually drink more water when I stay in the office and at home. Even if I have to go to my class, I bring with me my cup to protect my throat from feeling dry and thirsty. My occupation needs me to do a lot of speaking. Therefore I drink a lot for my throat to have a good voice as always.

That is fine. But whether your occupation requires or or, you should continue to have 2 to 3 litres per day to keep away from all minor ailments.

Yes, I think so. Whatever occupation we are engaged in, it is essential for us to have enough water like the amount you mentioned--3 liters. My favorite is tea, either black or green. Thanks, ssh.
