I have heard that each person must drink at least 8 litres of water each day.Getting less water isnt good for health, and people are in risk of dehydration and other bad conditions. I dont drink much water.Probably less than 1 litre of it per day, and im worried about it.Sometimes i eat a candy just to be thirsty and drink much water with it afterwards. Do you get 8 litres of water everyday? If yes, you do well!

8 liters? Where did you hear that from? I dont really think its 8 liters a day. I always just heard 8 glasses of water a day. I dont think you will get dehydrated for not drinking the exact amount you should get. You also get water from other sources. Such as the food that you eat.

It is 8 litres of water, from all possible sources, including food.But it is extreme amount indeed.Sounds weird to me, but thats exactly what i have heard and read-8 litres of water each and every day :)

I drink about 8 to 12 tall glasses of water on an average daily. Somedays I feel like I am really thirsty and drink even more. I have a glass before meals and a glass after meals. In between I drink 3 to 4 glasses more.
