How much water do I need?
The general recommendation is to drink 2 litres or 8 glasses of water per day. To be more accurate and to calculate your individual requirments you can base your water needs upon your body weight as follows:
35ml per kg of bodweight.
So if you weigh 70kg then: 70 x 35 = 2450.
This means you need to take 2.45 litres of water daily (from food or drink)
If your not very good at drinking water, try to eat foods with a high water content like fruits, vegetable, milk and soups. Remember in the summer you will have to take in more fluids than usual.
