Am I stupid, or are you only allowed to log water in how many cups you drink? All my bottles are labeled in ounces so I just haven't been logging cuz I'm lazy, but I'd like to!

it's a picture with a number on it, use it to represent the number of bottles of whatever ounces the one you use are...
if that's 10 ounces and you have 3 of them make the number be 3.
if your container is 16 ounces and you have 4 then enter 4 on the 'cups' on the food diary.
If your bottle is 8 ounces and you have 8 enter 8 on the picture...

8 ounces of water is considered a cup.

Do what I do. Drink water whenever, and don't log it. Less stress, and I'm never thirsty.

Divide your ounces by 8. That would be how many cups.

noway

hey pandorian, 1 cup of water is 8 oz...not 10 oz.....

please be careful about giving advice when you dont know what you are talking about...
i hope i didnt misunderstand you...you told the person, if you drink 3 ....10 oz bottles you would put 3 cups on the food log page for water..

3 would actually 30 oz so you would actually have more than 3 cups..... i have learned on here to not short yourself on anything whether it be good or bad....

my suggestion would be to find a water bottle that is measured in multiples of 8 oz... I love an old Gatorade bottle....32 oz and you know once you have consumed 2 of those you have got your basic minimum for the day.....8 cups of water.....or 64 ozs...

I don't want to speak for him, but I thought what he was saying is it doesn't matter. If you always drink from a 12 oz cup, when you log a cup, you know that it's 12 oz's, not 8.

neverstray...........

very confusing....look at ALL the other responses....8oz is a cup is a cup is a cup.....8 oz....not 10 not 12 not 16.....

8 oz equals a cup......

simple is simple...

Yeah the PP did "speak" right, I wasn't meaning to say "cups are X number of ounces" but that the number shown on the food diary can represent whatever you want it to. A cup as intended, your 16 ounce bottle (2 cups), a 32 ounce kegger (4 cups) it's a number for you to reference... if your only container is 100 ounces and you drink 1 of them a day you can track "1" on the "glass pictured on the food diary (not a "cup")

i drink out of various size bottles, so i just keep track throughout the day & then divide by 8. :)
