They say you should drink eight 8oz glasses of water a day for optimal hydration and organ function, however you should drink throughout the day. If you wait to drink when you are thirsty you are already dehydrated.
I've heard a person should drink half their body weight in ounces every day. Most people are dehydrated, and stay away from the High Fructose Corn Syrup and the Aspertame.
From a health perspective, every drink you have throughout the day should be water. Order water at every restaurant, drink water with every meal and, when you're thirsty, reach for water. Obviously this can be difficult in a world surrounded by sugary drinks, but just remember that water is never the wrong choice.
