How much water should I drink?


We tend not drink enough water whether we are exercising or not. The general rule should be to take in fluids when you feel the need or at regular intervals throughout the day and to remember that water is the best source for your daily fluid needs. 

Other good beverages include milk, herbal teas, low-sodium broth, 100% fruit and vegetable juices. Soft drinks will also count toward your daily total of fluid, but remember that sugar sweetened soft drinks and fruit juices add extra calories to your daily quota.

                                

The amount of fluid intake required will vary from person to person and depend on their body weight and the intensity and duration of their exercise.

Assuming the weather conditions are not particularly hot or cold
a person who weighs 150 pounds and who is exercising for 60 minutes should drink 82 ounces of water or 2.5 litres.

About 20 percent of your water may come from the foods you eat so, if you eat a healthy diet, you would need in the region of 65.6 ounces of water or 2 litres.

A person who is 105 pounds and is exercising for 60 minutes needs 58.5 ounces of water or 1.8 litres which can be reduced to 46.8 ounces of water or 1.4 litres if following a healthy diet.

Similarly, a person who is 182 pounds and is exercising for 60 minutes should consume 97 ounces of water or 2.9 litres or, if following a balanced diet, 77.6 ounces or 2.3 litres of water.
