I believe the easiest thing you can do for your health is to drink your water.
Yes, something THAT EASY.
Why is drinking water the easiest thing you can do for your health?
Most people do not drink enough water during the day. We rely these days on pop (or soda/coke, whatever you call it), coffee, teas, etc. Then we wonder why we have headaches, can’t sleep at night, struggle to lose weight, see blood sugar imbalances, etc.
Water actually helps move nutrients through your body. If we are hydrated, we are able to get those nutrients (from whole foods) to the places they need to be. When we are dehydrated our body can’t process and absorb the nutrients it needs to… therefore making us not only feel worse but also not supporting our long term health.
If you do one thing for your health this week, see if you can hit your daily water goal each day.
The question is, HOW much water should you drink?
The easy answer is “it depends” 😜 however, there is actually a way to get a good “base” gauge of how much water you should be drinking a day.
For starters, look at your body weight in pounds (it doesn’t have to be exact, I understand if you don’t utilize the scale!) and divide that in half.
IE: 200lbs / 2 = 100
This is the base number of ounces you should be drinking a day. From there, it will take some playing around.
Maybe add an extra 8oz before or after you drink your coffee… another 8oz for every 30 minutes of working out.
You might not need the whole 100oz, or you might find that you feel so much better on the days you hit 128oz (1 gallon).
Give it a try, I’m curious to hear what happens!
