Calculate Your Recommended Water Intake!

Water is very important for many reasons. It has many health and performance benefits. It keeps your organs functioning properly, clears toxins, reduces excess sodium from your body, and it hydrates your muscle cells. It even liberates fat stores on your body so they are burned off as an energy source. Dehydration will cause a major decrement in performance.

Water plays a major role in cell volumization. This is where nutrients are pulled inside of the muscle cell causing a multitude of reactions that leads to muscle growth. Water is very important in many processes including digestion, transportation and the absorption of nutrients.

the recommended intake is based on calorie intake, not just weight.1 milliliter per kcal per day.

i.e. if someone consumes aboug 3800 calories a day, they should drink about 3800 milliliter of water a day which is 3.8 liters a day, so approximately a gallon a day.

This is just a basic rule of thumb to ensure you're not drinking too much. Other factors are lifestyles, physical activities levels, etc.
