Regarding water - Everyone is different. I drink anwhere from 10 - 15 glasses of water a day. I also run a little hot - all the time. I also walk a mile every day and work out for over 20 minutes almost every day.
However, I have seen lots of articles and features on the whole 5-6 glasses/day theory and I think it's just backlash. MOST people probably don't need more than 5 a day because their sedentary, non-physically demanding lives don't call for much more than that. Plus, a "cup/glass" of water, although in this sense means 8 oz, is often seen as a glass of water, like the kind you have in your cupboard. MOST people have 16 oz cups, so 5 glasses a day would end up being more than the 64oz recommended. Heh. Not like that's going to hurt anyone.
I liked the tips in this article.
