Another one of those "do's" that have no scientific foundation. There is no magic in deliberately consuming 64 ounces of water a day it is one of those truisms which have no factual basis. Drink when you are thirsty, you get water from a variety of sources from the food you eat. The point to remember is when you are thirsty drink do not sip, I suggest at least 8 ounces but recommend 16 ounces at a thirst cue. The colour of your urine will indicate if you are under hydrated or over hydrated. dark is under, pale is over, bright yellow is fine.


It is called WORK-ing out for a reason.

I said getting fit was simple, I did not say it was easy.

Cardio burns calories, strength work burns fat.

Eat well to lose weight, exercise to get fit

You can not build a six pack using twelve packs


Often when we seek a magic bullet for fitness we end up shooting ourselves in the foot.

"They" do, yes, but "they" do not have any scientific basis for saying 8 servings a day.

Drink when thirsty. That is all your body needs. Eight a day is too little for some, too many for others. Just listen to your own body.

When they ask about drinking 8 cups of water a day, do they mean 8 ounces for 1 serving?
