Fit Livin' Fluids

How much fluid do I need each day?

The amount of fluid you need daily depends on a variety of factors. The Institute of Medicine has set an adequate intake of 125 ounces (about 15 cups) for men and 91 ounces (about 11 cups) for women. These daily recommendations reflect total water consumption from drinking water as well as from other beverages containing water and from solid foods. We should aim for 80% of this total from fluids and 20% from solids. Based on these total water recommendations, men should be consuming approximately 101 ounces (about 13 cups) per day and women should aim for 74 ounces (about 9 cups) per day.


Fit Livin' Fluid Guidelines:

  • Daily Fluid Goal:  Men: 13 cups and Women: 9 cups
  • Aim for at least 6 cups of water daily
  • Limit calorie containing fluids to 2 cups per day
