The advice from medical professionals regarding drinking water used to be that people should drink eight cups of water a day. If the glasses are 8 ounces, that is 64 ounces a day. That does not take into account the differences in average body size for men and women, activity levels or even weather. That led to new advice recommending that men drink 13 cups (104 ounces) and women drink 9 cups (72 ounces). But this also does not apply to every person.
Not all women are the same size or shape, and they have different lifestyles. The same applies to men.
