Typically you should drink eight, 8oz glasses of water per day. If you are exercising and drinking coffee/pop/fruit punches etc. you need to add more water into your daily allowance. This is where it gets confusing. So how much water should we drink? If you drink coffee you need to add 2 more glasses of water to balance it out and the same for pop. Fruit drinks and punches (not fresh juice) add another glass of water. Moderate exercise 2 glasses, extreme exercise 3-4 glasses. You may be up to 15 glasses of water a day, which is a lot of water to drink and you thought drinking 8 glasses a day was tough.
