Daily water intake: I commend you to care for your Health! Amount of daily water intake is based on age, gender, and activity level. It is recommended- eight 8-ounce glasses about 2 liters. Listening to your body and drinking when you feel thirsty is a good way to ensure staying hydrated. Drinking too much water can lead to low levels of sodium in the blood which can cause weakness, confusion, nausea, vomiting.
