@fmfdfa2020 I was aiming for 64 ounces of water until I met my doctor. She told me to think about aiming for 1/2 my body weight (lbs) in oz. When I started, I was 155 and rounded out to 75 oz of water. Now I just naturally aim for 90 since my water cup is 30 oz and I don't have to measure or guess.
Everyone is different, though. Turns out, my body does so so so much better when I drink more. Plus, I've found that when I manage to drink more, I eat smaller portions and it's become a win-win. (My doc did mention that water will help me understand hunger vs thirst when she suggested upping it to 1/2 body weight).
It's not a requirement (bodies are funny and everyone's reacts differently) but it was nice to experiment and find what makes a difference for me! Best of luck (:
