    The need for 64 oz. of water a day is a myth, and it actually can do damage if you drink too much. Drink if you're thirsty, that's it, nothing complicated.

    If you wait until you're thirsty to drink, you are already dehydrated.

    Drink half your body weight in ounces. So if you weight 150 you want to drink at least 75 ounces a day.

    THIS!!

    I weight 190 so I try and drink atleast 100oz of water a day - most days I drink more some days I think less but 100oz is my goal!

    I've been told by 2 of my doctors to drink a gallon a day. That's what I do.

    When I asked my doctor this question she told me that if my urine is clear and I am urinating at least once an hour I am drinking enough water and that is the way she recommends that to her patients.
    This. If your urine is clear and you are not thirsty, don't drink. If your urine is yellow OR you are thirsty then drink. Just listen to your body, it knows. Not everyday is the same. On days where I have long workouts, I can easily drink 1 1/2 gallons. On other days 6 glasses is plenty.

    When I read your topic I was going to respond "as much as you can". But after reading what you wrote I can tell you that I drink atleast the amount of water each day that the formula you give derives and I feel great :-)

    I love how people warn about drinking too much water but nevermind the 2-3 32oz cups of soda a lot of people drink each day just from eating fast food and eating out.

    I count all my liquids so I probably average a gallon a day on liquids.

    At the least 1/2 your bodyweight in OZ. I go for over 100 oz a day and feel great when I hit 1 gallon.

    I do the half weight in ounces too, and lose weight pretty quick when I start, so it works for me. Plus my skin clears up, so it's awesome!

    Where did anyone say that that was okay? That's a straw man argument, setting up target no one brought up, and knocking it down.

    I drink 3 to 4 liters daily depending on whether I exercise or not. I think it's what you feel more comfortable with.
