I drink coffee, protein shakes, NOXplode, iced tea, hot tea and one or two other drinks per day but not that much plain water.

I measured my water intake only yesterday it was right around 48 ounces. I do not feel dehydrated but I do wonder if I am drinking enough plain water.

How much water (by itself) do you drink each day?

A good rule of thumb is 1/2 your body weight on ounces.

In the heat of the summer I can get close to 1.5 gallons. I drink less when on a blast because with most meals I'm drinking milk

It's hot where I work, I could see less water intake for an office worker

I have a gallon water jug with me at work and I usually finish it all the time, so I might be drinking at least 1 1/2 gallons daily.

Between 1 and 2 gallons depending upon the conditions on the job site.
