Do You Really Need To Drink 8 Cups Of Water A Day? The Answer

March 16, 2016 by Isabel Jones
shefinds | Style

You probably read the headline of this article and silently agreed, “Yes, you need 8 cups of water per day. Case closed.” This is what our parents, teachers, health care professionals (EVERYONE) has been telling us our entire lives. It’s a knee-jerk response at this point: 8 CUPS, 8 CUPS. Well, guess what…? That advice is not entirely accurate…

The Institute of Medicine recently revised their daily water intake suggestion, stating that men should actually be drinking 15 glasses per day, while women should be drinking 11. I know what you’re thinking… I have a life, I can’t sit around drinking 11 cups of water per day! Well, yet again, the plot thickens…

The amount of water you’re supposed to drink per day can’t really be whittled down to a hard and fast rule. Truth be told, the answer differs from person to person. Basically, you’re supposed to listen to your body. If you’re thirsty, DRINK!

An easy way to make sure you’re drinking enough water is by checking the color of your urine. A healthy, well-hydrated person’s urine should be about the shade of a cup o’ lemonade (don’t think too hard about the comparison). If your pee is darker than your fave summertime beverage, you need to drink more water!
