Good morning.Yesterday I posted about milk. Today will be water. Do we need to drink 64 oz of water a day? I normally do six glasses.But I get some from my broth,tea,fruit with high water content.Anything with water in it. The also saying to drink half or you lean body weight. I have cut back on water.I get plenty from my food and such. photo is a freebie.How many glasses do you drink.

I get a lot of liquid through coffee, broth and fruits, I also drink water, two full glasses with each milk and a couple when I am thirsty during the day. I do not force myself to drink if I do not feel the need.

@amadeo In my opinion it's never good to force our body to do something, it knows better than we do what their needs are.

I drink plenty of water but do not know how much. I fill 16-ounce bottles and keep them in the refrigerator as i love cold water. I drink one and fill it up again and then let it chill and drink another one the next time i need a drink. When I go to my room to get ready for bed by reading in bed, I bring two bottles of water that are chilled and drink those getting ready for bed.

I was told by my DR. that your body will tell you when you need fluids. I had a lot of problems with retaining water and some of that was over drinking. He said that in the past yes it was suggested 8 glasses a day etc. however everyone's body is different. What is needed by one person isn't right for another :)

I think the amount depends on where you live, people who live in hotter cointries should drink more. When we were young, we were taught to drink at least 6 glasses of water a day but those books were printed in a colder country. The amount should also match diet, people who eat a lot of bad food especially salty and sweet should drink more, heavy drinkers should also drink more water to prevent dehydration.

I'm not sure on this one but i don't even drink that much water in a day. I have my 2 cups of coffee in the morning, 1 can of soda in the afternoon then the rest of the day i drink water. I probably have like 4 bottles of water a day.

I drink at least 8 glasses of water daily and that doesn't include my coffee. I gave up diet soda ages ago and replaced it with water. Now I crave water if I don' drink it.

I use to drink 8 glass of water which makes me keep hydrated day long and of course I get water from fruits as well. Is it good enough to drink 8 glass of water?

We should drink lots of water to get toxin out of our body and to avoid dehydration. It depends on place to place as in hot places people tend to drink more water automatically compared to the place where there is cold.
