The more water the better! Most recomment 8 glasses of water a day but if you workout you should drink half a gallon to a gallon of water. The secret is to drink enough water that your urine is clear.

There are at least two "schools" on water intake by humans.

One "school" recommends a daily water intake based on a person's weight in pounds. Divide the number of pounds in half - this is how many fluid ounces of water you should consume each day. So, for a 110 pound person, this would mean 55 fluid ounces of water per day. This amount should be further adjusted based on the person's level of physical activity. For example, a professional athlete should add another 30% or so, for a total of about 71-72 fluid ounces of water per day for an athlete who weighs 110 pounds.

The other "school" advises to use your thirst as the measure of how much water you need.

In both cases, a large portion of your water intake will come from the foods and miscellaneous beverages you consume throughout each day - it doesn't all have to be plain water.

Caution: whichever method you decide to follow, be sure to spread your water intake across the entire day. Water intoxication can be fatal if you drink too much water all at once.

In fluid I assume your asking about water. Some drinks can actually dehydrate. My doctor told me to take your weight in half and add ounces to that. 150 lbs. in half is 75 so you will need 75 ounces of water a day. Drink more if you are exercising or exertion. If you cant stay away from soda make sure you drink even more to combat the salt.

About 6 liters (quarts) is ideal - and is the geometric mean between the bare minimum (one and 1/2 liters) and the max (which is 24 liters per day).

Remember, this includes all fluids, even the water in "solid" food.

That will depend upon:

  • How active you are
  • How warm or cold the weather is
  • How much exposure you get to the sun
  • The ambient humidity
  • Your weight
  • What and how much you eat
  • Heredity and metabolism
  • Your clothing

and perhaps other factors as well.

For the winter, figure on six to eight cups of water per day, as a bare minimum for an inactive person.

To that amount, add a further unspecified amount for eachof these: an active lifestyle, time spent in the sun, a warm day, high humidity, a larger body than average, salty and spicy foods, large amounts of (any) food, heavier clothing, certain types of metabolism, and other unspecified factors as appropriate.

There is no precise maximum, but it's better to spread your water intake throughout the day.

Drink before you're thirsty.

For the summer, try around twelve to fifteen cups as a minimum for a moderately active person who spends some time outdoors. And these amounts must be adjusted for each person and for each changing factor.

Do not rely on thirst as an indicator. Drink before you're thirsty.


For the summer, try around twelve to fifteen cups as a minimum for a moderately active person who spends some time outdoors. Do not strictly rely upon this; this is just a starting-point which must be adjusted for each person and for each changing factor.

This depends on activity levels. Even the hardest working athletes should not consume more than 150 fl. oz., but most people should consume about 10 to 15 cups a day.
