How much water should you drink in a day?
Everyone’s body is different but for a regular adult with mild activity levels, a good rule of thumb is as follows
Take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2. That number is the ounces of water you should be drinking daily.
So a 200-pound person ought to drink 100 oz of water a day.
For those doing heavy exercise or living in very hot conditions the amount of water intake is markedly higher.
