How Many Ounces of Water Should I Drink Daily?

According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, both men and women need an adequate daily fluid intake to regulate body temperature, deliver nutrients to cells, and keep organs function. Being well-hydrated also improves sleep quality, cognition, and mood. So follow this water intake guideline to stay hydrated:

  • Daily Hydration for Men: 15.5 cups; 126 oz; 7 liters
  • Daily Hydration for Women: 11.5 cups; 91 oz; 7 liters

However, body sizes, intensity of activities, health conditions, and climate factors should all be taken into consideration. For labor intensive workers and those live at higher altitudes or dry areas, it’s recommended to drink extra water (50 ounces) to make up for fluid loss. Various illnesses and conditions, such as fever, diarrhea, vomiting, sweating that contribute to fluid loss, require a higher than daily allowance to replace the lost hydration.

According to ACOG (The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists), pregnant woman needs to drink 12 cups (98 ounces) of water every day. Water aids digestion and helps form the amniotic fluid around fetus, also helps nutrients circulate in the body and flush waste. Nursing mom needs an impressive 16 cups (128 ounces) per day of water to comenspate for the water needed to make milk. It’s suggested breastfeeding moms drink a large bottle of water each time the baby is nursed.

Factors That Affect Water Intake Needs

Water is essential for good health, but how much water you need depends on many factors. These include your activity level, the climate you live in, your age, your health status, and whether you are pregnant or breastfeeding.

If you are healthy and active, you will need more water than someone who is sedentary. If you live in a hot climate, you will need more water to stay hydrated than someone who lives in a cooler climate. And if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, you will need more water to support your growing baby.

Age is also a factor in how much water you need. Adults generally need about 8-10 cups of water per day. However, older adults may need less water because they are less active and have a lower body mass.

Your health status can also affect your water needs. You may need to adjust your fluid intake accordingly if you have any chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or kidney disease. Check with your doctor or dietitian to be sure you are drinking enough water.

So how many ounces of water should YOU drink daily? It depends on all of the above factors! But a good rule of thumb is to drink 8 ounces of water daily for every 20 pounds of body weight. So if you weigh 160 pounds, aim for at least 64 ounces (8 cups) of water daily.

Signs of Dehydration

Dehydration can cause several different symptoms. Some of the more common ones include:

  • Thirst
  • Dry mouth
  • Decreased urine output
  • Dark yellow urine
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Dizziness or lightheadedness

If you are experiencing any of these symptoms, it is important to increase your fluid intake and seek medical attention if necessary. Dehydration can be very dangerous, so it is essential to take it seriously.


Ways to Increase Water Intake

There are a variety of ways that people can increase their water intake throughout the day. Some of the most common methods include:

  • Drinking a glass of water first thing in the morning
  • Keeping a Buzio water bottle with you during the day and sipping on it regularly
  • Adding citrus or other fruits to your water to make it more refreshing
  • Drinking herbal teas or green tea throughout the day
  • Having a glass of water with each meal
  • Snacking on water-rich foods like cucumbers, tomatoes, or watermelon
  • You can drink it plain or add it to other beverages such as juices or sodas. You can also cook with it or use it in place of other liquids such as milk or cream.

If you’re finding it difficult to drink enough water each day, try out a few of these methods and see which ones work best for you.

Buzio water bottle can help you benchmark how many bottles water drink

While water needs vary by individual, a good place to start is the Buzio water bottle. It holds 64 ounces, which is equivalent to eight cups or half a gallon of water. This can help you benchmark how much water you should drink daily.

Most health authorities recommend that adults drink eight 8-ounce glasses of fluids per day. That's about 2 litres or half a gallon. Although the Buzio water bottle contains 64 ounces, it's important to remember that not all of this is pure water. Depending on your diet and activity level, you may need more or less than 64 ounces of water daily.

For example, if you eat a lot of salty foods or sweat profusely during exercise, you'll need to drink more water to replace the electrolytes lost through sweating.
