The shocking amount of water you should drink each day

How much water should you drink daily? We always hear about the 8x8 rule; that we should drink eight 8-ounce glasses a day. However, there’s no good scientific data to back that up.

Take it from 'Live Science' and Dr. Oz. How much water you really need is different for men and women.

Women should aim for 91 ounces or 2.7 liters per day, while men should have 125 ounces a day or 3.7 liters. That’s according to the National Academies of Sciences and it includes food and drink.

Twenty-five percent of the water in your diet can come from food, such as watermelon and strawberries. Those fruits are more than 90 percent water by weight, says the USDA.

However, these are just drinking guidelines. Everyone’s needs are different. Your body will let you know.

The more you sweat, the more you’ll have to replenish, and the darker the stream, the more water you’ll need.

Sorry if that last tip just ruined your appetite!
