I drink bottled water so not sure how to mark this. Each bottle is 16.9 ounces. Anyone know??

8oz per glass of water. So a bottle is 2 glasses.

One glass of water is considered to be 8 oz. When I drink a 16.9 oz bottle of water, I just mark down 2 glasses. Close enough! :-)

I count a bottle of water as 2. I think the reccommendation is 8 - 8oz glasses/day.

A serving of water is 8 oz. A bottle of water that is 16.9 oz would be a little over 2 servings of water.

One cup is 8oz; so a bottle of water is 2 cups (plus a little bit -- i just count it as 2).
You can also look at it as 1 bottle = 1 pint (a pint is 2 cups)

That is a little over 2 eight ounce glasses/cups of water. Usually when a program measures water it is in 8 oz increments. Or that is the way I've been used to measuring mine.

Take your weight and divide it by 15, whatever that number equals is the number of cups of water a day your suppose to be drinking... so if your number is 16, then youd have to drink 8 of those bottles a day..not very cost effective... i use a 24oz water bottle with a squirt top (just an old aquafina bottle)...24oz is 3 cups.. and i just refill it each time i empty it.. My water number is 20cups a day, so I have to drink near 7 of these bottles a day. I keep one at my desk, one on my nightstand, and then i always keep one with me---around the house or in the car, etc.

Where did you hear to take your weight and divide it by 15 vs the old standard of drinking 8 glasses a day?

Here is an awesome article on water consumption from the mayo clinic http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/water/NU00283
