I read somewhere last night that the whole "Eight 8oz. glasses per day" water rule applies to like a 120-something pound person and that if you are heavier than that, you need more. And the way to know how much water you need in one day is to take your weight and divide it by 2....and that is how many oz. of water you should drink in one day.

Is that true??? If so.....that's a lotta water!!!!

I've heard/read the same thing. The thing is, though, that some of that water can come from food and other beverages...fruits/veggies, milk, etc. I try to get about 96 oz of actual water per day, and that's a bit more than twice my weight.

Thank you, peimum, for my beautiful siggy!

I belong to Sparkpeople.com and they say that you only need to drink 64oz a day because you get water from foods & other drinks.

There is so much research arguing both sides of it, so I don't know. I don't drink that much water, I drink about 8 oz a day.

Shoooot Lately I have been failing on my 64 oz and I would almost have to double that if you go by weight

I'm trying to work back up to sticking with 64 but aiming for 80 oz

I have read different things on this. Personally, I drink when I am thirsty and follow my body's cues and that's it. *If* I exercise I will drink a lot of water and if I don't I don't need quite so much.
