Water is a transparent, tasteless, odorless, and nearly colorless chemical substance that is the main constituent of Earth's streams, lakes, and oceans, and the fluids of most living organisms. Its chemical formula is H2O, meaning that each of its molecules contains one oxygen and two hydrogen atoms that are connected by covalent bonds. Strictly speaking, water refers to the liquid state of a substance that prevails at standard ambient temperature and pressure; but it often refers also to its solid state (ice) or its gaseous state (steam or water vapor). It also occurs in nature as snow, glaciers, ice packs and icebergs, clouds, fog, dew, aquifers, and atmospheric humidity.

I am a big promoter of water and it's benefits but how much should you drink? Take your weight, half it, and drink that much in ounces. Say you weight 140, half is 70 so drink at least 70 ounces throughout the day. That is about 4-5 bottles (16.9 oz) of water per day. (TIP: don't take little sips of water all day, take a big gulp (about 3 oz per gulp) to help drink throughout the day)
