How much water should I drink each day ?

  The exact amount of water you should drink each day is dependent on a number of factors, but health authorities often use the 8 x 8 rule as an easy way to remember: 8 ounces of fluids 8 times a day. While beverages such as tea, fruit juice, sports drinks, pop, and alcoholic drinks contain water, these should not be your main sources of fluid intake. Water is calorie-free, readily available, and inexpensive. Additionally, if you exercise, you should drink water before, during, and after the session. Stay hydrated!
