How Much Water Do I Really Need?
Do you drink enough water? Most people have heard 8 glasses a day, but did you know it is really .5 oz per pound? Also when you drink alcohol or coffee you need one glass of water just to cancel out the dehydrating effects. So my 2 cups of water first thing in the morning just cancel out the effects of my 2 cups of coffee. I still need 70 oz more water for the day. Then if I workout, which I usually do, I need 20% more (plus the water to cancel out my coffee) or a grand total of 100 oz a day based on my weight of 138 pounds.
