Find out your current body weight. The needed daily amount of water for your body largely depends on the body weight, so you must accurately know it.
The amount of water needed will normally vary, as, for example, the body of a 200-pound man would need more water, than the one of a 100-pound woman.
Divide the weight in half. To discover how much water you should consume daily, you should divide the body weight, for instance, in case you weigh 180 pounds: 1/2 = 90 ounces, meaning that you should drink 90 ounces of water on a daily basis.
Activity level. The level of activity greatly influences the amount of water as well, as physical activities lead to sweating, which eliminates the water, and you need to compensate for the lost water. Namely, you should add approximately 15 ounces of water for every half an hour of exercise.
