How much water to drink per day
Our body consists of 70% water and our blood even around 90% just like our brains. So you have to drink enough so that you don’t dry out. It depends on how much you have to drink per person. A 1.90m man needs more fluid compared to a 1.70m woman. For women the recommended daily amount of water is around 2 liters per day and for men around 3 liters.
There are some exceptions when you have to drink more than this average. Think of athletes or people who do physical heavy work every day. If you are so busy moving, it makes sense that you need more water because you will dry out faster. Hot summer days are also an exception. You then perspire worse so lose more moisture than normal. That is why it is important to pay close attention to how much water you drink.
