How Much Water Do You Need?

Your body needs water even if you do not feel thirsty.

The amount of water required depends on many factors. As a general guideline; the average person should drink between 1.5 and 2.5 liters of water every day.

Beverages with caffeine such as coffee, tea and colas are actually dehydrating the body, robbing the organs by using more water to process than they provide. Alcoholic beverages also cause dehydration.

Juices and sports drinks quench the body’s thirst, but they may also provide unwanted calories.
