We all know that you’re supposed to drink eight glasses of water a day. But, is that much really necessary?
The amount of water you ingest in a day is not just about the water you drink. It also includes fluids from other drinks, as well as water you get from foods. And, it can also change based on where you live, your diet and your daily activity level, among other factors.
Without enough water, brain function and energy levels may suffer. Remember that your body is around 60% water. Water can help with weight loss by upping your metabolism and helping with appetite. Drinking enough water can also help keep your body functioning at peak efficiency.
In the end, there is no hard and fast rule about how much water to drink. Everyone is different.
