It depends: One common rule of thumb is that the number of ounces we drink each day should be half our weight in pounds (or about equal our weight in kg), so a 120 lb. Person should drink 60 oz. This does not have to all be water, though water is the best overall choice. However, if it is hot out or you are very active you need to drink more.

Depends: It is always wise to eat your water by having 6 servings of fresh vegetables raw or lightly steamed and at least one fruit every day which are 90 % water but also have electrolytes and nutrients. Soups are a good source of water in the winter. Iif you are sweating a lot you need more water but a hydrating solution is better. If your urine is concentrated drink enough water for it to be light.
