One of the frequent discussions in my Seattle Hypnosis with Roger Moore office is, “How Many Glasses of Water Should I Drink a Day?” I’ve read numerous studies that range from “don’t worry about” it to 64 ounces every day. I don’t have data to support this, but my observation over the past 18 years is that people who drink close to 64 ounces of water each day lose weight quicker and easier than those who drink less.

How Many Glasses of Water Should We Drink a Day?
So based on all the best evidence to date, authorities from Europe, the U.S. Institute of Medicine, and the World Health Organization recommend between 2 to 2.7 liters of water a day for women. That’s 8 to 11 cups a day for women, and 10 to 15 cups a day for men. Now but that’s water from all sources, not just beverages, and we get about a liter from food and the water our body actually makes, and so these translate into a recommendation for women to drink 4 to 7 cups of water a day and men, 6 to 11 cups, assuming only moderate physical activity at moderate ambient temperatures.
We can also get water from all the other drinks we consume, including caffeinated drinks, with the exception of stronger alcoholic drinks like wines and spirits. Beer can leave you with more water than you started with, but wine actively dehydrates you. Note, though, in the cancer and heart disease studies I mentioned, the benefits were only found with increased water consumption, not other beverages, so unless you have conditions like heart or kidney failure, women should drink 4 to 7 cups of water a day and men should drink 6 to 11.
I have great respect and trust for Dr. Greger. I very much appreciate his perspective on how much water women and men should drink each day. In the future I will be sharing his information with hypnosis for weight loss clients.
You can learn hypnosis to increase your desire for water and to end your for soda’s and other beverages that make you fat and sick.
