I heard a doctor say on television today that a person can gauge the amount of water s/he needs by the following formula: divide your weight by two and this would equal the number of ounces you need to drink. So if you weigh 160 pounds divide it by two which equals 80 ounces. Eight ounces in a cup makes ten cups. Wonder if I did that right? I think so............please don't send nasty letters............LOLOLOL.

    I've heard that too. 1/2 of your weight. Its really not that much, spread out through the day. For me, it just means replacing water with all the soda & junk that I usually drink Smile

    Here's a nifty quiz to take. I think it follows a similar principle but it takes into account how active you are too. I liked that it broke out how much I really needed to drink vs how much will probably be contributed by the food I eat.

    Don't forget that food has a lot of water also.

    for someone who weighs 250 lbs, that would mean that they would have to drink 125 ounces of water. sounds like to much.

    My nutrition course always taught 50-75 ounces of water plus miscellaneous amounts of water you get from nutrients. Only athletes neds drink more.
