Drink WATER!

Drink WATER!!
As a whole, people do not drink enough water everyday. We are dehydrated and our health suffers as a result.
What if I told you that you will see many differences in your health just by forming a habit of drinking your necessary amount of water everyday?
Would you do it?
Will you just experiment with me and see what happens?
Let’s try it.

First things first – how much water do you need? Is it the one size fits all of 8 glasses a day? Not exactly. This is a good starting point though. If you just want to form the habit – start with those 8 glasses.

For a more accurate calculation, let’s get personal.

  • How much do you weigh?
  • Do you exercise daily?
  • What is the weather like today?

Here is the breakdown:

  • Weight: For every pound of body weight, turn to ounces of water.
    Example: 150lbs = 150oz of water (don’t gawk yet – this is NOT how much you need to drink)
  • Activity: If you exercise everyday – and I mean breaking a sweat exercising – multiply that number by 0.75 to find out how much you should drink daily.
    Example: 150oz of water x 0.75 = 112.5 oz of water a day
    If you are not active everyday, just multiply by 0.5.
    Example: 150 oz of water x 0.5 = 75 oz of water a day
  • Weather: On hot days, you need a little more to stay hydrated. How much is up to you and your thirst level. Listen to your body as a guide.

When is the best time to drink water?

It is not a good idea to drink water with your meals as it can actually prevent proper digestion.
