We need water to live. Every system in our bodies depends on it — in fact, we’re all made of about 60% water by weight.
So every day we need to replenish the moisture we lose. The Mayo Clinic says that men need about 3 liters (about 13 cups) of total beverages a day, women about 2.2 liters (about 9 cups).
Good news: you don’t have to rely just on what you drink to meet your body’s needs. Food contributes, on average, about 20% of your total water intake. These fresh fruit & veggie favorites can help you stay healthy, hydrated and deliciously satisfied anytime!
