I read a lot that you need to drink 8 glasses of water a day. But how much exactly is 8 glasses?

conversion factors rule.

1glass=250cm^3

1cm^3=1ml

1000ml=1L

therefore

8glass * 250cm^3/1glass * 1ml/1cm^3 * 1L/1000ml = 2litres

therefore 8glasses of water is exactly 2litres of wtaer.

Most of the water you consume will probably come from food.

Most of the water you will consume comes directly from drinking it.

I believe most RD recommend half your body weight in ounces (150lbs = 75oz of water). However, this also depends on your activity level and weather, which could increase your water intake to 100-120oz. Personally, I try to drink as much as I can which is normally around 100-110oz.

Unelss I need some caffeine, water is all I drink. Why drink soda, juice, etc (read: CRAP)? By only drinking water, I easily drink a gallon a day.. especially If I go to the gym.
