I think it's half your body weight in ounces, so if you're 150, drink 75 ounces. I drink iced water all day, after my coffee b4 breakfast and lunch. Sometimes I use the mio stuff, but not often

You should drink about half your weight in ounces. 

I sometimes add MIO to mine. I also like cucumber or fruit in mine.

These ladies have the recommendations right.  That doesn't take into account water for exercising, so increase it for that.

I drink about 100 oz per day (I weigh about 165), including water for running.  I don't alter it at all, just plain for me!

Yep, these ladies are right...you can add some fresh fruit to your water for a nice flavor:)

I usually have a gallon that I drink from all day. Plus I usually fit a few glasses in too.

I believe the recommendation right now is 1/2 your body weight in oz.

I drink probably 3-4 litters of water a day if not a little more. I love water. I do add a drink mix to some occasionally or make tea

At least half your body weight in ounces. Everyone is going to be different too depending on their activity level, hormones, etc. But, this is a good average. wink

I drink about 100oz a day, or a bit more.  I love water, so I usually drink it plain and room temp, but for DH I slice cucumbers into it the night before and it turns out really yummy and cucumber-y. :)
