There are lots of adages about how much water we should be drinking on a daily basis. It seems like every magazine, TV show or blog suggests a new amount that each and every individual should try to intake regularly. However, all of our bodies are different, and that means we don’t all need to be drinking the same amount of water. Here’s a simple tip to help you remember how much to drink. Find your body weight, halve it, and drink that many ounces of water/day. For instance, if you weight 180 pounds, make sure you have 90 ounces of water/day.

One note: for every caffeinated beverage you consume, be sure to drink an extra 12-16 ounces of water.
