To help individuals meet their personal hydration goals, the International Bottled Water Association has a hydration calculator available on its website at http://www.bottledwater.org.
One way to determine your specific recommended water intake is to divide your weight (in pounds) by two. The resulting number is the number of ounces of water you need each day. For example, if you weigh 150 lbs., strive to drink 75 ounces of water daily.
It is best to carry water with you in a glass bottle. By filling a bottle each morning, you will be aware of the amount of water you are drinking during the day. Without the reminder by your side, it is easy to forget to drink any water at all during the day!!
Make sure the water you are drinking is “healthy” . Add lemons or limes to your water. This makes the water more alkaline which is so excellent for your system. Cucumber slices or mint leaves can also be added to a glass of water to give it more interest to your palate. These are cheap alternatives to the bottled flavored water.
Eat water rich foods, such as fruits like watermelon, which is 92 % water by weight. People suffering from urinary infection caused by insufficient intake of water can drink cranberry juice and eat watermelon along with drinking plenty of water everyday.
You shouldn't drink too much water while eating as it dilutes your stomach acid and can cause digestion problems.
It is not recommended that you reuse plastic water bottles that are intended for one time use, specifically number one plastics. These bottles leach chemicals into your water after multiple uses.
