How much should I drink?

What's your idea of the right amount of water to drink each day?

It may surprise you to learn that there is no magic number - it depends on your own height, weight, diet, age, activity levels and the ambient temperature to accurately calculate your optimum hydration level each day!

Health authorities often recommend eight 8-ounce glasses (about 2 litres) as a middle-ground benchmark. This is known as the 8x8 rule and is easy to remember. It is however believed by some health experts that it is beneficial to sip on water regularly all day, even if you aren't thirsty.

At the end of the day, there is no exact answer to how much water you should drink a day. It is therefore important to experiment and see what is the adequate amount that works for you and your lifestyle to stay hydrated.
