Exactly how much water to a "glass"?

Options
Some glasses are bigger. Some are smaller. I generally drink from a sports bottle all day... not exactly how big it is so I usually count it as 2 glasses. How many cups to a glass? I have googled this before and gotten conflicting answers.

    250mL is pretty standard for a glass of water ;)

    8 ounces. To give you an idea of size: most regular sized water bottles, like from a machine, have a little over 2 servings. If you don't know ounces, a serving is also 240 mL.

    The question I always have is, when "they" say 8 to 10 "glasses" per day, do they mean 8 to 10 8-ounce cups or 8 to 10 "glasses" which generally hold more like 2 cups (16 ounces.)

    I generally assume it's 8 to 10 eight-ounce "cups" per day instead of "glasses."
    But I could be wrong. It happens on occasion ;-)

    Fixed. A glass isn't a measurement.

    Use a measuring cup and measure it! 8 oz = 1 cup

    when they say cups they mean standard measurement of a cup, not a glass

    It's cups, not glasses. Glasses is not a measurement.

    They don't say glasses they say cups (like measuring cups). Honestly, I think any glass you have will be OK - measuring doesn't have to be perfect on that one:smile:

    Edit to add: anything with no caffeine can count.

    I agree, but they never say 8-10 cups per day. It's always phrased 8-10 glasses per day.

    Click on your Food tab. It clearly is cups. Not sure what "they" you really mean...I've heard cups, always.

    ""So how much fluid does the average, healthy adult living in a temperate climate need? The Institute of Medicine determined that an adequate intake (AI) for men is roughly 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day. The AI for women is 2.2 liters (about 9 cups) of total beverages a day. ""

    I'd classify the mayoclinic as a pretty good source for medical information

    Agreed. Especially during exercise. But contacts are tough with seasonal allergies and can get expensive.
