Ev­ery­one needs eight glasses of wa­ter a day.

Men's Health (Australia) - - ADVANTAGE -

That’s like say­ing ev­ery­one needs to eat 11,700 kilo­joules a day. (They don’t.) De­pend­ing on body weight, ac­tiv­ity level and tem­per­a­ture, your daily fluid needs can range from as lit­tle as 1.8 litres to more than 5.6 litres per day. On days when you don’t ex­er­cise, as­sess your pee. Your urine should look more like le­mon­ade than wa­ter or ap­ple juice. Dark urine of­ten re­flects de­hy­dra­tion. On days when you work out, weigh your­self pre- and post-ex­er­cise. For ev­ery halfk­ilo­gram of weight you lost, you’ll need to drink 2½ to 3 cups of fluid to re­store balance.
