The “Old” Recommendation: 8 cups (8 oz) of Water per Day (64 oz) The “More Recent” Recommendation: ½ Your Body Weight in Ounces 150 lbs. Divided by 2 = 75 Ounces The Newest Research: “Most Recent” PLUS Electrolytes PLUS (sodium, potassium, magnesium, chloride and calcium) “Gel Hydration” (food) Why? Allows Cellular Hydration
