Recommended daily water intake

Every day, we lose an average of 10 cups of water through a combination of breathing,urination,andfeceselimination.Thisamountmustbereplaceddailyor the body will be in a state of dehydration. At the very least, humans need a little over one quart of water each day just to replenish unavoidable losses in urine, feces, sweat, and expired air. Eight 8-oz. glasses of water per day for the average inactive man or woman has been recommended. Figure 7-3 illustrates the amount of recommended daily water intake. If this amount is more than you usually drink and you suddenly increase the water intake, you will temporarily increase your frequency of urination. Over time, the body will eventually accommodate the increased water intake without any noticeable side effects.
