How much water should I drink per day to be healthy?

Postby MichelleAna » Sat, 22 Sep 2018 12:29 pm

There are many misconceptions about drinking 8 glasses of water a day. What do you think about it? I am curious to know how much water to drink to be healthy.

From an academic/research point of view, we don't really know for sure how much is enough - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4473081/

But 4-6 glasses of water sounds like a good place to start!

lots of school of thoughts on this one... I've read somewhere that quotes 2.5-3lites in a day is recommended. 4-6 standard glasses seem not enough.

Hi, drinking 8 glasses of water a day is recommended from health authorities. But if really want to become a healthy you have to do an exercise because if you do an exercise no doubt you can drink a lot of water and replenish your body. You can drink more than 8 glasses of water if you do this.

I believe this changes for everyone.
I don't have a reference, I only have the experience:
Whenever I drink more that 2 liters of water, I'm having the best day.
And when I reduce it, (forgetting to drink any water for a full day) I experience headaches and tiredness.
(I drank half a liter right after I see this post!)

According to healthline, you must drink even more (about 13 cups if you're an adult man or a breastfeeding woman :shock:). That's sounds reasonable for a hot climate. They even posted a comparison table (social groups/cups of water comparison): https://www.healthline.com/health/how-m ... ld-I-drink
Personally I try to drink at least 2 liters per day to stay hydrated, and that works for me.

That is an awful lot of water for a 4 year old.
