Hey hey my friend!
I'm here to give a litte love to another one of my dear friends that quite honestly get either forgotten or dumped on. It's the fanastic nutrient - water!
Oh water, how we love you.
Believe it or not, it's actually one of the simplest ways to get more energy, maintain your weight and flush out toxins.
And that's just three of its many fabulous qualities! That's why today I'm shining a spotlight on our good friend, water.
It's actually one of the body's 6 key nutrients and did you know that the human body is 55% to 60% water?
That's why it's so scary to realize that it's only the second most popular beverage in the U.S. - the first is soft drinks.
And you already know that soft drinks are a major health hazard and takes you on a blood sugar roller coaster.
When done for years, the blood sugar rollercoaster can result in obesity, stroke and other heart problems. The good news is that these dangers can be avoided when you balance out your blood sugar and choose to drink water.
So let's make water your number one drink of choice!
Here's a quick breakdown of what exactly water does for your body:
- Keeps the fluid balance of your body
- Carries nutrients to your cells
- Aids digestion by forming stomach secretions
- Flushes bodily waste
- Keeps your kidneys healthy
- Keeps your organs moisture-rich (such as your eyes, skin, mouth and nose) and functioning well
- Fights fatigue and gives you extra energy
- Helps clear skin
- Prevents muscle cramps
- Regulates body temperature and metabolism
- Plays a crucial role in disease prevention
- Reduces inflammation
- Promotes cartilage health
- Slows the signs of aging
Now that you're convinced how important water is, the big question is "How much water should I drink each day?"
Like everything in nutrition it's a controversial topic with everyone saying something different. But the answer is actually quite simple.
Cut through any confusion you have by using Water Wisdom.
Water Wisdom is simply this: drink between 64 ounces and 0.67% of your body weight to be fully hydrated. Done!
So for example, if your body weighed 150 lbs. you'd need to drink anywhere from 64 ounces and 100 ounces of water per day.
This will shift based on the following:
- How much water you were drinking before this
- Your activity level
- How much caffeine or alcohol you drink each day (since both dehydrate you)
- The temperature of where you live
You'll able to tell if you're drinking enough water when:
- Your urine is on the light side
- It's abundant
- And you have to empty your bladder every two to three hours
Now with that being said, when you first start to bump up how much water you drink, you're going to be in the restroom more often that you're used to. But don't freak out. It's only going to last a few days and then the body will adjust.
Now, let's get real:
- Do you hate drinking water?
- Or always feel thirsty? Or wake up thirsty?
- And just never seem to drink enough no matter what you do?
- Do you spend too much time on the go to get all your water in?
- Are afraid of the water quality at your office?
- Find water super boring and would rather have champagne?
