We all know how important water is for our bodies. It is also a great drink for diabetics as it is free of calories and carbs. So, how many of us actually drink water on a regular basis? How many drink enough?
How do you determine how much water you should drink per day? I have seen three different methods:
1. When you are thirsty; drink. Many disagree with this and state that once you feel thirsty you are already dehydrated.
2. 64 oz per day (8 8oz glasses). I listened to Dr. Oz one day when he stated that this is based upon a study done in WWII and the tiny note at the bottom is not typically discussed. It states that you can also get part of that 64 oz from foods you eat that has water naturally occurring in it.
3. Based upon your weight. It can be calculated here: http://www.calculatorslive.com/Daily-Water-In....
So, what method do you use?
