Drink It, Baby
Water is definitely a human needs. One can't live without drink water. The question is, how much you should drink? Although no single formula fits everyone, knowing more about your body's need for fluids will help you estimate how much water to drink each day.
Gender: In general, doctors are now recommending that a healthy adult man should drink approximately 13 cups of water per day and a healthy adult woman should drink approximately nine cups per day. These numbers are determined by the average amount of water a person will lose throughout the day through excretions, as well as the amount of water required to facilitate bodily functions.
Women who are nursing or pregnant will need to drink at least 10 to 13 cups of water per day to accommodate for the additional water loss to the baby or fetus.
