This is an article regarding the daily water requirement, which actually varies for each individual based on many factors, but the easily remembered rule is 8x8 or 8 fluid ounces 8 times a day or in 8 glasses.

According to Mayo Clinic men should drink at least 13 cups and women should drink 9 cups.

So do you drink enough?

I have a big water bottle and I usually drink two of them full of water a day. I'm not sure if it's enough but I try.

I drink what I can. I don't think I could drink the recommended amounts. I'd be running to the toilet all the freakin' time.

Not sure, but my water intake really has increased once my doctor told me no more caffeine. Since then I hardly drink sodas and if i don't, it's caffeine free. But I've turned now mostly to sports drinks, milk, tea, and water.

I've been really trying to drink enough water lately. Especially because it's summer and I'm trying to drop quite a few pounds. But it's hard because the only waters that I really like the taste of are Smartwater and Nestle Pure Life.

I drink water regularly all day long. I haven't measured the amount, but I'd be really, really surprised if it wasn't optimal. I have chronic fatigue, so I notice being slightly dehydrated a LOT more easily than the average person, I think.

for the most part I do. it is hard at work because we cant walk around with our water bottles, they have to stay in the break room. so you can go to the coolers and get a glass of water, but its a pain to go and find one unless you are dying of thirst. But at home I drink more then enough water.

I am a water fiend! Sometimes I even crave certain brands of bottled water. My current favorite is Dasani. Don't get me wrong, I drink a lot of coffee too.

I drink more than enough water. I usually have between 100-130 oz of water a day. I always have a bottle of water with me.
