Water helps the body. It stops spasms. It helps you to not over indulge in food and get hungry.
It helps the thirst. Water can go anywhere in a bottle. Water is handy walking for l5 min a day.
Water is good when you have your lunch. Water needs to be in your life.

I drink 8 glasses a day. If I am going out I start when I come home. I also drink OJ and sometimes coffee. Water is suppose to stop spasms and read where OJ too but even tho I drink my water and OJ I still get spasms. So you can not prove it is true by me.

I drink juice and coffee. I drink water when I take a pill. Someone suggested I drink water that's not cold. I'm going to try that.

You may have heard that you should aim to drink eight 8-ounce glasses of water per day. How much you should actually drink is more individualized than you might think.

The Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommends that men drink at least 104 ounces of water per day, which is 13 cups. They say women should drink at least 72 ounces, which is 9 cups.

Still, the answer to exactly how much water you should drink isnít so simple.

Water recommendations

While the eight glasses rule is a good start, it isnít based on solid, well-researched information.

Your body weight is made up of 60 percent water. Every system in your body needs water to function. Your recommended intake is based on factors including your sex, age, activity level, and others, such as if youíre pregnant or breastfeeding.
Adults

The current IOM recommendation for people ages 19 and older is around 131 ounces for men and 95 ounces for women. This is your overall fluid intake per day, including anything you eat or drink containing water in it, like fruits or vegetables.

Of this total, men should get around 13 cups from beverages. For women, itís 9 cups.

You may also need to drink more water if you live in a hot climate, exercise often, or have a fever, diarrhea, or vomiting.

Add an additional 1.5 to 2.5 cups of water each day if you exercise. You may need to add even more if you work out for longer than an hour.

You may need more water if you live in a hot climate.

If you live at an elevation greater than 8,200 feet above sea level, you may also need to drink more.

When you have a fever, vomiting, or diarrhea, your body loses more fluids than usual, so drink more water. Your doctor may even suggest taking drinks with electrolytes to keep your electrolyte balance more stable.

Why do you need water?

Water is important for most processes your body goes through in a day. When you drink water, you replenish your stores. Without enough water, your body and its organs canít function properly.

Benefits of drinking water include:

keeping your body temperature within a normal range
lubricating and cushioning your joints
protecting your spine and other tissues
helping you eliminate waste through urine, sweat, and bowel movements

Drinking enough water can also help you look your best. For example, water keeps your skin looking healthy. Skin is your bodyís largest organ. When you drink plenty of water, you keep it healthy and hydrated.

And because water contains zero calories, water can be an excellent tool for managing your weight, as well.

TODAY Is MY tomorrow. It's up to ME to shape it, To TAKE CONTROL and seize EVERY opportunity. The POWER is in the choices I make EVERY day. I eat well, I live well I SHAPE ME!

THE EMPOWERED LIFE. EXPECT IT . BELIEVE IT. RECEIVE IT.
The human will is the most incredible thing. It's what keeps us going when everyone else expects us to quit.

THIS MEANS WAR AGAINST FAT:
I'm too positive to be doubtful, too optimistic to be fearful, and too determined to be defeated.
