As a basic guide, most people need about 1.5 to 2 litres of fluid each day, which is about 8 to 10 glasses. Except from water, hydration can be achieved also from other drinks, such as milk and fruit juice, and fruit and vegetables, such as cucumber, lettuce and tomatoes.
The main sign of dehydration is thirst, the Club notes, but good indicators are also the number of times you go to the toilet and the colour of your urine, it should be pale yellow. If you don’t need to go often, you only pass a little urine each time and it's dark in colour, it’s likely that you’re dehydrated.
Other signs of dehydration include:
• feeling weak and dizzy
• dry mouth and lips and eyes
• feeling confused
