How Much Water Should You Drink?
Suggested Reading: Alkaline Water Benefits
How much water should I drink…..it’s a question I get a lot as a wellness counselor and the answer can vary according to specific situations but basically, I say, A LOT. That 64-ounce a day rule is one I support in most cases
Those who know me also know that I advocate drinking lots and lots of pure water all throughout the day, as opposed to drinking big glasses in the morning and evening, or some other way of feast or famine water consumption.
People drink those huge glasses all at once because, for them, it’s a little like taking medicine that doesn’t taste good. They don’t like the “taste” of water.
If you don’t like the taste of water, try alkaline water or filtered water. It may be that you don’t like the taste of chlorine or that your body is rejecting flouride or other contaminants in the water.
Anyway, enough preaching. I just found the neatest tool. It’s from Aquasana. I’ve been promoting their water filters for years now and they are very popular. I like this little test they have on their site because it figures in how your water needs can change according to your lifestyle.
For example, it covers caffeine consumption, alcohol consumption, traveling by air (which can be very dehydrating), exercise habits, smoking and more and gives you a daily water consumption goal based on your individual lifestyle.
It’s free to try and takes about a minute so if you want to know how much water should you drink, here’s an easy way to get a good idea about that:
