Drinking water: Are you drinking enough water? How can you tell?

How much water should you drink a day?

According to the NHS, men should drink more water than women.

The health service’s website reads: “The European Food Safety Authority recommends that women should drink about 1.6 litres of fluid and men should drink about 2.0 litres of fluid per day.

“That’s about eight glasses of 200ml each for a woman, and 10 glasses of 200ml each for a man.”

Although the Government guidelines suggest drinking eight to ten glasses of water a day, factors such as your size, temperature and activity levels can make a massive difference on how much water you should drink.
