How many 16oz bottles of water should a 20 year old drink a day?

How many 16oz bottles of water should a 20 year old drink a day?

Doesn't matter: They should take in enough fluids daily to pee every 6-8 hours. Counting ounces is best left to OCD people with no life. You get water value from many foods (applesauce 95%, vegetables 60%) and fluids (soups, soda, juice). You could live your life and never drink water. If they are in good health, imposing such a goal or requirement is unnecessary. Read more

How many 600ml bottles of water should I drink per day to lose weight?

How many 600ml bottles of water should I drink per day to lose weight?

Drinking water does: Water alone does not make you lose weight. It is the lack of eating food which makes the difference. Water simply gives you a feeling of a full stomachwhich doesnotlast morethan 1 or 2 hours. But this is not the best way to lose weight effectivekly. Along with water you should eats ome low-calorie foods like fruits, salads, veggies, grains and proteins from snacks (like nuts, eggs and fish). Read more

How many bottles of water must you drink everyday not to be dehyrated I drink a lot of soda and maybe 2 or 3 waters a day?

IT DEPENDS: On your level of activity, but typically you want to drink 6 - 8 ounces of water with meals, and an extra 20-30 in between. Water you use for coffee, tea, etc counts towards those ounces, and you should just cut the pop. Too much sodium per can, even if they are diet.
Its been shown tat pop will decrease certain substances that tell your brain you are full, so skip them altogether please. Read more

Is perrier bottle water okay to drink twice a day?

Is perrier bottle water okay to drink twice a day?

Yes: Drink it as often as you like and can afford! Don't forget to recycle the bottle! By the way, if you trust your local tap water, there are also carbonation devices that will add fizz to your water at lower price point than perrier. I'm not a connoisseur by any means so I'm satisfied by faux perrier. Read more

Is drinking 3 full bottles of 2 Liters water in one day, normal?

Is drinking 3 full bottles of 2 Liters water in one day, normal?

A bit excessive: 6-8 glasses of water daily is a suggested average intake for water for an average sized adult, so 6 liters would be more than this requirement. If you think your average daily water intake has increased a lot recently, this can be an early sign of diabetes, and it would be a good idea to check in with your doctor and have a morning fasting glucose level and perhaps a Hemoglobin A1C level checked Read more

Is 4 16.9 oz bottles of water a day too much water? I drink this every day and sometimes more every single day.

Is 4 16.9 oz bottles of water a day too much water? I drink this every day and sometimes more every single day.

Why?: Why are you drinking water? There is no real benefit, unless you suffer from kidney stones. If you are physically active and live in a warm climate, you may need a lot of water to replace sweat losses. The best guide to water intake is your thirst. Listen to your body. Read more

Should I be concerned if I drink 5 bottles of water each day. 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle. Is it bad?

Should I be concerned if I drink 5 bottles of water each day. 16.9 fl oz (1.05pt) 500ml each bottle. Is it bad?

Probably not: However, are you drinking 5 bottles of water because you are thirsty or because someone thought it was a good idea? Unless you have a history of kidney stones, you should be fine to drink somewhat less than 2.5+ liters of fluids (5 bottles of water + other sources of water). For most patients, a total daily intake of 2L of fluids should be more than adequate. Read more

Should I be worried tht I drink at least 15 to 25 bottles of water a day and only output once or twice a day at the most and sometimes don't even go?

Should I be worried tht I drink at least 15 to 25 bottles of water a day and only output once or twice a day at the most and sometimes don't even go?

See MD: Though water output is the most through urination, we also lose is through breathing, sweating and a very small amount usually through defecation. Still, it seems that your intake is out of proportion to your output unless you are exercising ANS sweating a tremendous amount. What may be more telling is the color - if it isn't light yellow or nearly clear then there is a problem. See your md. Read more

Are plastic bottles of water ok to drink from every day>?

Are plastic bottles of water ok to drink from every day>?

Yes but: Most bottled water is really tap water put in bottles. There are many studies showing the composition of the contents of these bottles and you will be paying a lot for what you can get from your faucet at home. Check 'consumer reports' on google for data on this. Bottled water is convenient but does not usually have the health benefits advertised. A few think their are toxins in the plastics. Read more

Am I drinking toxins from the plastic of bottled water sitting in my car all day in the sun?

Am I drinking toxins from the plastic of bottled water sitting in my car all day in the sun?

Perhaps: The question of whether dehp used in the production of many plastic containers has toxicity for humans after chronic exposure remains unanswered. Some reports say definitely not; others say perhaps. There is evidence of chronic toxicity in laboratory animals. Use your prudence & your good judgment. There are alternatives to plastic water bottles. I use an aluminum bottle. Read more

If bottle water is 16.9 ounces, how many bottled water's a day should you normally drink to keep properly hydrated?

If bottle water is 16.9 ounces, how many bottled water's a day should you normally drink to keep properly hydrated?

Varies very widely: Reality: varies widely. If people are very healthy & in comfortable environment, can survive indefinitely on as little as 0.5 liter a day yet tolerate as much as 25 liters/day, a 50 fold range. With heart weakness, liver failure and/or kidney failure the range narrows markedly, both ends. Too much in, especially too fast, & we drown/die. This can happen to even to the seemingly young & healthy. Read more

40 Nutrients: There are 40 essential nutrients that you need every day: 13 vitamins, 15 minerals, 10 Amino Acids (from protein) and 2 fatty acids. If you consume only water, there are cells somewhere in your body that starve to death every day, until eventually you die. Rather than a water fast, use a reputable meal replacement formula like ensure, boost or glucerna. Read more

I feel sick after I drink water. Especially in the mornings but also during the day. Bottled water doesn't help either.

I feel sick after I drink water. Especially in the mornings but also during the day. Bottled water doesn't help either.

Pregnant?: Are you pregnant? It can change your tastes. If you are not pregnant but drink a lot of flavored beverages like milk, tea, coffee, sodas, etc, water will taste bad and can actually make you feel nauseated. It is sometimes necessary to eliminate some of the flavored beverages before you will tolerate drinking water. Best wishes! Read more

So why is it that when I drink from a water bottle all day and I don't go to the bathroom much, am I not drinking enough?

Maybe (not). . .: You didn't mention how many bottles you consume nor the size of said water bottle. So, yes, it's possible that perhaps you're not drinking enough water. Check out http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/healthy-living/nutrition-and-healthy-eating/in-depth/water/art-20044256 for a rough answer. I typically recommend drinking enough to make you void (pee) clear urine. Read more

More than needed: You may be drinking more water than needed. Drinking a lot of water alone is not going to result in weight loss. Caloric restriction and exercise will. Read more

I drink 4-6 16.9oz bottles of water daily. Today I had 4 over the course of the day and then 2 within an hour. Could this cause water intoxication?

I drink 4-6 16.9oz bottles of water daily. Today I had 4 over the course of the day and then 2 within an hour. Could this cause water intoxication?

Unlikely: Depending on how many ks you weigh, drinking that much water shouldn't cause you any problems. A normal 70kg individual requires about 1600mL of fluid replenishment by natural losses daily. For heat, sweat, or other losses you would increase accordingly. For every 1 degree above 98 degrees Fahrenheit your daily fluid requirement increases by 125mL/day as well. Many gallons will cause trouble. Read more
