8 cups? 2000cc? How much water is enough to drink a day

Don't get tied up in 8 glasses of water or 2000 cc's! There is no scientific evidence that 8 glasses of water a day will have additional health benefits, such as keeping the face hydrated and bright, and the all-cause mortality rate from chronic kidney disease and a combination of all factors such as various diseases has not decreased, stressed Aaron E. Carroll, professor of pediatrics at Indiana University School of Medicine.

Drinking water actually varies from person to person, depending on the temperature and humidity of the environment, the amount of exercise, health conditions, sweating and urination, food intake, etc., there is no standard value; dietitians generally recommend "body weight per kilogram x 30cc = water intake per day".

And this, in fact, includes the water in the food. Most fruits and vegetables are more than 90% water, while eggs and fish also have about 75% water. A rough estimate, a meal can be taken from food or soup to 300-400cc of water, calculated at 60 kg body weight, three meals, and then drink 1500 to 1800cc of boiled water even if the target.

However, you should not drink too much water, especially if you have heart disease, kidney disease, or cirrhosis of the liver, you should pay attention to the amount of water you drink because these three types of people have poor kidney function and are unable to excrete too much water and salt, which can easily cause water poisoning. People with water poisoning will develop edema, starting with the calves and ankles. A simple way to determine this is to press the muscles with your finger belly, and if they do not return to their original state immediately, it means edema.

Can the tea or coffee I drink during the day be counted as part of the 2000cc?

It is best not to. These caffeinated beverages and juices with high potassium or citric acid have a diuretic effect and tend to take away excess water from the body. It is recommended that if you drink tea or coffee, it is best to take an additional 500cc of water.

Regardless of how much water you drink, the general principle is to spread it out several times throughout the day so that your body stays hydrated at all times.
