Hydration Tip From The Ranch at Live Oak in Malibu

How Much Water Do You Drink Daily?

I just spent three days with the detox specialists at The Ranch at Live Oak in Malibu, and hydration was a hot topic. We were encouraged to drink considerably more water than the standard recommendation of 64 ounces daily. This detox program recommends drinking, over the course of 12 hours, one ounce of water for every pound you weigh. For example is you weigh 130 pounds, you should drink 130 ounces of water between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. It sounds like an in surmountable task, but is you take one or two sips every five minutes it's pretty easy to do.

10-14 cups, so 80 to 112 oz a day.

I am in Australia... so I had to do a conversion for my results. I drink between 2.5 to 3 Litres a day, which equates to 84 to 101 oz

Between water and non-caffeinated beverages, I get around 70-80 ounces a day.

Sometimes I load up like a camel before a long desert journey. I get dehydrated easily.
