There’s no one-size-fits-all rule, but aim for eight glasses -- about 64 ounces -- per day. “Your daily water requirements depend on many factors,” says registered dietician Jim White, a spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics and owner of Jim White Fitness and Nutrition Studios in Virginia Beach. “For example, you’ll need more water if you’re physically active or if it’s hot and humid.” You also need more if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding -- ask your doctor for guidelines -- but it’s generally an additional 10 to 30 ounces of fluids.
