How Much Water Do Men & Women Need A Day?

According to the U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, adequate intake for men is 15.5 cups (3.7 liters) of liquid, and for women 11.5 cups (2.7 liters). Men and women have different recommended fluid intake amounts not really because the average man is larger than the average woman, but because body water content is actually higher in men than it is in women; while the average adult man is 60% water, the average adult woman is only 55% water, due to women naturally have more fatty tissue than men.
