*^#$^#% HOW MUCH WATER!!@##$%

Spring and then summer are around the corner, I thought I would remind you - hydrate!

The recommended dosage is 1 oz of water per 2 pounds of body weight.
So: weight in pounds /2 = how many ounces you should drink.

if you want a conversion from ounces to liters, type in "##oz in liters" to the google search bar, the calculation will automatically come up.
200 pound person would enter: "100 oz in liters"
100 US fluid ounces = 2.95735296 liters

Measurement reference:
Bottled water that is about the same size (height) as a bottle of soda/pop, a retail fridge for a quick drink is usually 20 oz.
1 1/2 pints 900 ml 3 3/4 cup
1 3/4 pints 1 litre 4 cups (1qt)
2 pints 1 1/4 litres 1 1/4 quarts
2 1/3 pints 1 1/2 litres 3 US pints
3 1/4 pints 2 litres 2 quarts

Tricia tidbits pulled from books and sites.
It is possible to lose a pint of liquid each day just exhaling. (http://www.naturodoc.com/library/nutrition/water.htm)
