So, I know I'm supposed to take in 8 cups of water per day, but I usually drink bottles of water... 16.9FL OZ. to be exact. How many bottles of water should I drink for it to be equivalent to 8 cups of water?

2 bottles that size will give you 8 cups.

16 oz is 2 cups, so about 4....I think?

There is 8 oz in a cup so to get your 8 glasses a day you'll need to drink about 4 of those bottles.

A cup is 8oz so you have a little over 2 cups per bottle. If you drink 4 bottles you will get the recommend amout per day plus a little extra which will not hurt you at all.

Isnt 1 cup 8 oz? I you have to drink 8 cups that would be 64 oz. so that would be 3.7 (4) of those 11.9 oz bottles.

You don't "HAVE TO" drink any amount of water by the way. Everyone needs a different amount of water every day. Just don't get dehydrated (depends what you eat, the weather, how much you sweat, etc) and chose water over other drinks as often as possible. That's it!!!! smile

I wouldn't worry about how much your getting, you don't need a set target, it just doesn't make sense. And I hope you're not buying individual water bottles, I hope you're just refilling a reusable bottle.... otherwise, noway

You don't need to drink that many bottles of water. Tea and lemonade and many other things also have water in them, as well as the food you eat. I got put in the hospital for being dehydrated. But that's because I was mainly drinking soda. Soda pop of any kind dehydrates you as well as alcoholic beverages. Most people say you get drunk again the next morning if you drink water but that isn't the case. Your body is actually rehydrating itself as you drink water and the sudden change of being rehydrated is what makes you feel that way. If you drink two bottles of water before bed after drinking it will help a lot sometimes it may even keep you from getting hung over. Staying hydrated is important. There is nothing more scary that I've experienced than being dehydrated.i love water but with my busy schedule its hard to stay as hydrated as I would like to be. But my advice is no matter what you need to keep yourself hydrated. Or your body will tell you itself that you aren't treating it right. But two bottles a day a long with three small portioned healthy meals won't only keep you hydrated but it will keep you healthy to. And also if you eat something with a little Salt that keeps you from cramping and lots of water before your time of month keeps you from bloating. I hope this helps you.

1 cup equals 8 ounce. so you need at the minimal of 64 ounces a day. THat is 3.8 bottles of water roughly.
