The Daily Water Intake Calculator – Find out the recommended water intake
The daily water intake calculator uses scientific calculations and algos to accurately arrive at the recommended daily water intake keeping in mind your activity level and body weight and height. Water makes up more than half of your body weight and it is essential to drink the recommended glasses of water to avoid dehydration and for the normal functioning of the body. It is also a well-known fact that drinking the recommended daily intake of water can reduce the chances of heart disease and kidney problems. Drinking the right amount of water can also help the body regulate temperature and avoid dehydration.
It is well-known fact that water intake should be increased along with increased levels of exercise, sport or physical exertion. The body loses 2.5 percent of body water every day, and this rate goes up with exercise and sport. The daily water intake calculator factors in the daily activity level to counter the body water lost during exercise. It is recommended that you drink 16 ounces of water for every pound of body weight lost during exercise. Many people do not know that it is essential to drink the recommended daily amount of water while going through weight loss or while dieting. The reason for this is that the liver requires water to metabolize body fat.
This daily recommended water intake calculator is only to be used as a guideline, and it not meant for medical diagnosis. The results of the water intake calculator should not be interpreted as medical advice. Please contact your doctor if you feel uneasy after exercise or do not feel fit/ feel tired/ feel dehydrated even after drinking the recommended daily intake of water.
The formula that this water intake calculator uses is that for every pound of body weight you need 0.5 ounces of fluid intake per day. Therefore if your body weight is 200 Pounds, you would need 100 ounces of fluid. The calculator then calculates the glasses of water by dividing the ounces of water by 8 and corrects the final answer by factoring in the level of daily exercise. It should be remembered that the level of daily exercise can vary immensely depending upon the nature of exercise and the intensity, therefore it is important to keep replenishing the water that is lost while sweating, even if the consumption seems more than the figure calculated by the daily water intake calculator.
