You're Probably Not Drinking Enough Water. Here's How Much You Need. 💧

The amount of water you need during these hot summer months may surprise you. It's probably quite a bit more than you're drinking...

Your water needs vary depending on your weight and body type, says Lauren Minchen, a registered dietician and nutritionist at Lauren Minchen Nutrition in New York.

So, what's the recommendation?

  • 2 to 4 liters for active adults. (about 68-135 ounces!!)
  • Registered dietitian, Amy Shapiro, says a good rule of thumb is to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water. If you weigh 180 pounds, you need to drink 90 ounces, or about 3 liters, of water daily.
  • The Mayo Clinic also recommends drinking 2.7 liters of water a day for women and 3.7 liters for men. 

I try to drink 64 ounces, daily. Basically, I walk around with a 32oz. water bottle. If I drink 2 of those, I'm feelin' pretty good. 

How much water are you drinking daily? Do you keep track?
