## Keep track of how much water you are drinking

Committing to increasing total water consumption is only half the equation; you also need to keep track of how much you actually drink each day. There are several ways to calculate the water each time you reach a glass.

A simple, convenient method that keeps all your information in one place is MoreFit’s MyPlate Calorie Tracker.

All you have to do is drink your water, enter the information in MyPlate and the program does the rest.

With helpful charts and graphs, you’ll always know how close you are to your one-gallon goal for the day.

If you’re tracking efforts, proving you’re running out of your daily quota, try some of these tips:

• Instead of a sip of water with your morning medications or vitamins, drink an eight-ounce glass.
• Heavy coffee drinker? Make a full portion of water between the cups.
• Do the same when drinking alcohol, alternating cocktails or beer with a full 16-ounce glass of pub water (which counts as two servings).
• Drink 20 ounces of water two hours before a workout, drink about 10 ounces every 15 minutes of the workout, and another eight ounces as soon as the workout is completed.
• Are you hungry when the 3 pm crash? Drink a glass of water as you may just be thirsty.
• Never leave the house without a reusable water bottle.

## How much water should you drink per day?

How many ounces of water you should drink each day depends on several factors including your body weight, activity level, and current health.

While there isn’t a magical number of glasses of water to drink in a day, many health authorities recommend using thirst as a guide.

If you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables and drink drinks that contain water, you are probably meeting 70% of your water needs through your overall diet.

While most of that amount comes from the beverages you drink, there are some estimates that we get around 22 percent of our water from food.

This is good news, especially if you struggle to sip water during the day.

But in case you need some concrete numbers to help guide your water intake, the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine have determined that adequate daily fluid intake is:

• Approximately 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of liquids per man
• About 11.5 cups (2.7 liters) of fluids per day for women

Additionally, the Institute of Medicine recommends that a healthy adult drink 78 to 100 ounces (about 9 to 13 cups) of fluid per day, on average.

### Conversion rate from Ounces to Gallons
