Have you gotten your recommended dose of daily water intake?

Here is a simple way to CHECK IT: 0.5 ounces x Body Weight in Pounds = Daily Fluid Requirement in ounces

For instance, if you weigh 140 lbs., simply multiply 140 by .5 to estimate your daily fluid needs in ounces, then divide by eight to estimate your fluid needs in cups per day, rounding up to the nearest full cup.  [example:  140 x .5 = 70 ounces; 70 ounces divided by 8 = 9 cups of fluid per day]

Or by caloric intake: .034 ounces x Daily Caloric Intake = Daily Fluid Requirement in ounces

As you calculate out what your daily fluid requirements are, you’ll probably realize that it is close to that common recommendation of 8 – 12 cups per day – Have you gotten yours?
