When I was asked how much water I drank a day, I said I have a cup I carry with me everyday. That didn't answer the question. Yes I have the cup full of water, but when I really thought about it, I sipped water, I didn't drink it. 32 ounces of water need to be consumed a day. Warning, going to the restroom a lot more will be annoying at first. Just remember the rewards, soft skin, well functioning kidneys, and weight loss.
