HOW MUCH SHOULD I BE DRINKING?
According to healthline.com:
While the eight glasses rule is a good start, it isn’t based on solid, well-researched information.
The current for people ages 19 and older is around 131 ounces for men and 95 ounces for women. This refers to your overall fluid intake per day, including anything you eat or drink that contains water, like fruits or vegetables.
Of this total, men should get around 13 cups from beverages. For women, it’s 9 cups.
TIPS TO HELP YOU DRINK MORE WATER:
- Add flavor. Did you know you can add flavor using fresh herbs and lemon slices?
- Use a water bottle with goal times written on it. Make sure you are drinking the designated amout of water by the goal time.
- Make a new habit. For example, plan to drink a glass of water before eating every meal.
- Sip it. Gulping water will make you bloated which in turn will make you feel too full to drink more water.
