Drink water!! Good, clean, fresh, filtered water to hydrate your body. Our body mass is 65-90% water, and we must keep the fluids going in, or guess what…? We dehydrate and have all kinds of unwanted side effects like muscle pain and fatigue, not to mention wrinkly, dried up skin. Think of how a prune shrivels as it dries out, and who wants to look like a prune? So drink up for anti-aging and wrinkle prevention!
Ever find yourself getting drowsy in the midafternoon? Often it is as simple as being dehydrated from the day’s activities and forgeting to drink up, and your body is crying for water. Guzzle down a big glass of fresh water and notice how you perk up right away.
But, how much are we supposed to drink every day? How many times have you heard the standard drink 8 glasses of water daily? Wait a minute… You mean that a tiny 95 pound woman should drink the same amount as a big 350 pound man? Of course not! Here’s the magic formula: Drink at least half your weight in ounces every day. So, if you weigh 100 pounds you would need to drink at least 50 ounces of water daily.
Another enormous benefit to drinking lots of water daily is to keep the toxins flushed out of your body. Add some fresh squeezed lemon to your water to help cleanse your liver and kidneys. But, do not drink tap water! Make sure the water you drink has been purified of toxins, bacteria, heavy metals, even microscopic parasites. You can purchase a small under the kitchen sink filtration system for your home to have unlimited fresh drinking water; the reverse osmosis system is a safe way to go for pure water. There are many types of water filtration and purification methods, but that’s another article.
One more thing, sodas, juices, coffee and teas do not count towards your daily water quota! In fact, for every ounce of a caffeinated drink you consume, because of the dehydration factor of caffeine, you need to add another ounce of water to your formula. So, if you drink an 8 oz. cup of coffee, that’s 8 ozs. you need to add to your daily water requirement formula.
