I wanted to share with you something that is SO important every day, especially in this heat! WATER! Water is what keeps our bodies going, and without it, dehydration and fatigue set in. If we fail to drink the proper amount of water each day, our internal organs suffer, as they cannot work well without proper hydration. Also, our bodies cannot perform critical metabolic processes without water! And the best part: It cuts down on our sugar cravings!
FORMULA FOR DAILY WATER CONSUMPTION: 1/2 YOUR BODY WEIGHT IN OUNCES PER DAY!
ALERT: IF YOU DON’T NORMALLY DRINK A LOT OF WATER, START SMALL AND WORK YOUR WAY TO THAT FORMULA.
Water & Your Body:
- Most adults lose about 2.5 to 3 liters of water from their bodies per day. This is increased in hot weather!
- Dry lips and fatigue may be a sign of dehydration.
- 75% of all Americans are chronically dehydrated.
- Even very mild dehydration can slow your body’s metabolism by 3%!
