Your water needs vary depending on your weight and body type, said Lauren Minchen, a registered dietician and nutritionist at Lauren Minchen Nutrition in New York. (HuffingtonPost)

So, what's the recommendation?

*2 to 4 liters for active adults. (about 68-135 ounces)

*Registered dietician, Amy Shapiro, says a good rule of thumb is to drink 1/2 your body weight in ounces of water. If you weigh 180 pounds, you need to drink 90 ounces, or about 3 liters, of water daily.

*The Mayo Clinic also recommends drinking 2.7 liters of water a day for women and 3.7 liters for men. 

I try to drink 64 ounces, daily. Basically, I walk around with a 32oz. Camelbak bottle. If I drink 2 of those, I'm feelin' pretty good. 

How much water are you drinking daily? Do you keep track?
