Water is essential to our bodies. It has many benefits that help us lose weight, gain muscle, and stay focused on our tasks. While most people know the benefits of water, most of us ask: how much is enough?
“In my experience, most people are not aware of how much they’re drinking and are not drinking enough – many, as little as half of what they need.”-says Amanda Carlson, RD, Director of Performance Nutrition at Athletes’ Performance, which trains many world- class athletes
While most people say that the number of glasses you don’t drink in a day isn’t important, it is. Knowing how much you drink will help you stay hydrated at all times.
Water is involved in every cellular process and once dehydrated; these processes slow down and affect your metabolism, along with other bodily functions.
While some people may not be concerned with monitoring their drinking habit, note that even just being 1% dehydrated already affects the body greatly.
It doesn’t take much to monitor your drinking pattern and adjusting it to fit what your body needs. The baseline number is about 13 glasses for men and 9 glasses for women. However, if you exercise rigorously, spend a lot of time under the sun, or take diuretics such as caffeinated drinks like soda and coffee, you may need more water. The trick is simple, simply drink the required number of glasses a day and drink more when you still feel thirsty.
As long as you are hydrated, you are assured that your mind and all your important bodily functions are working well and in order.
Never again will you feel tired in the middle of completing a report, or just before a big game. One trick that comes in handy is by taking water with you wherever you go. By carrying it around and taking small sips during the day, drinking water no longer seems like a tedious task.
