How much water should I drink every day?!

Question: How much water should I drink every day?
I was thinking about it, and they say you should drink 8 glasses.
How much is 8 glasses of water anyways?
I know on the back of cokes and sodas they say a serving size 8 oz.
Is this considered 1 glass of water too?


you should drink 64 oz. a day of water if you live in warmer places a little more

There is no real scientific evidence that eight glasses a day, and generally that does mean 8oz, is the right amount. It is just a general guideline. You get water from your food, like fruits and veggies, especially. Also, some people say caffeinated beverages don't count because caffeine is a diuretic. However, it isn't such a diuretic that it will negate the water in your cup of coffee. If you're active and sweating a lot, you might need a lot more water than 8 glasses, for instance.

YES 1 8 oz glass of soda is the same as an 8 oz glass of water...or any liquid for that matter...jeezzzz where did we graduate from?? or didn't we? you're supposed to drink 8 - 10 glasses per day. Lets just say around a gallon...(and yes, it's the same amount of water as there is milk in a gallon jug of milk)
