    How much water do you consume everyday?

    Do you stick to a certain amount?

    I know that you are supposed to drink at least 8, 8oz. glasses of water per day. Hate to admit this, but I am drinking at least three to four cups of iced coffee from starbuck and only two to three glasses of water a day. Have to definitely cut back on the iced coffee and drink more water. This in one major new year resolution I have made to myself.

    I do not get in the same amount every single day, unfortunately, however I aim for a minimum of 96 ounces of liquids per day.  Water has many benefits, from keeping us hydrated and "cleansed", to improving the appearance of our complexion.  Proper hydration also aides in weight loss. 

    While pregnant I would drink in excess of 2 gallons of water per day.

    Not nearly enough, but I tend to drink more water when I run regularly.  While training for a half marathon I would drink over a gallon a day.  Right now, I barely drink 3 glasses. I think your body craves healthier things when its exercising.  In fact if I had too much caffine the day before or day of a long run, I would feel awful during it.

    Some days I drink no water at all.  Almost everything I drink has caffeine in it.  I had one glass of water in the past few weeks.  I know that one day in december I had 2 glasses of water!  A record for me.

    I have read that 1.2L of water optimal. This would obviously vairy depending on how much you exercise that day or how warm the weather is. I'm drinking a little less than usual just now because it's winter but I do still aim to keep myself well hydrated as to keep away viruses and the lack of energy that seems to come with dehydration. I can drink a litre of water a day and still make room for other drinks. I have also read though that drinking excessive amounts liquid can in fact be harmfull to the body's cells. So perhaps I should put a limit on the fizzy drinks and coffee and stick to my good friend water. smile

    Water quality is something I also pay particular attention to and I think that everyone should do the same. Chlorine filters are highly advisable for tap water.

    Every day people consume at least 2 liters drinking water per day. And during his or her daily usage like in washroom, kitchen, gardens etc usages of water can be 50 to 100 liters per day

    Take your weight and divide it by two.  That is how many ounces of  plain unflavored water you are suppose to be drinking. I drink about the same amount every day and I generally drink beyond the recommended amount!

    I drink more juices and teas than water since I do not trust water that has not been boiled. Now from what we hear water in stores come from tap and I prefer not to drink sewer water we have forced upon us. I have been by one of those plants that treat water and if you ever are you can really get an idea of what water really is. How can more of that possibly be good for you?

    About 64 ounces a day. I use a water bottle with the measures on it and I typically only drink that during the day. No sodas etc.

    I usually drink from two to three liters of water everyday, depending on the physical activities that I´m engaged at. And given the fact that I live in a mild climate region, this quantity keeps my system hydrated during the course of the day. If the climate gets hotter, I could drink an extra 8-ounce glass of water, and it will be sufficient to maintain my nasal cavities and throat moisted for the rest of the day.

    I drink 3 glasses of water every day that means 1 glass  after every meal

    Probably close to a liter of spring water daily, which is not enough.  I think in the warmer months, my consumption will go back up!

    I drink at least 3 liters of water a day; 4 liters on average. I absolutely love water. I seldom drink soda and never drink coffee.

    I drink approximately one glass - 250mls. I know I should be drinking much more than this but I find water bloats me up, unlike what all the diets recommend. At the moment we are finding it really difficult as we are having trouble with our water system.
    The past few days have made me realise how awful it would be if we had no water on tap.
    Imagine what it must have been like when water was not automatic.

    I think eight glasses of water every day is enough for our body needs. But, I think the main rule about drinking water is when you feel thirst, you should just drink. And,  it is recommended to use plain water and avoid highly concentrated beverages.

    I am a big drinker...of wat and ice tea.  I usually have a coffee in the mornings.  Throughout the day, I probably consume at least 12 cups of water, and another 2 to 3 glasses of ice tea.

    We are living in India, so have to deal with a rather hot climate all year around. I recently started a drinking-diary to encourage myself to drink more water. From my average 1.5l I am now at about 4l - and you have no idea how much better my skin has become! If you have dry skin (especially elbows and calves) I really recommend that you try taking your water intake up for a while and see for yourself if it improves - for me it has done miracles!
