The Wonderful World of Water

wonderful-world-of-water

Don’t medicate-HYDRATE! Absolutely, hands down the number one healthy choice and yet most overlooked- the consumption of adequate amounts of water! The human is 60% made up of water and every system in our bodies depends on water. It flushes toxins from all organs and carries nutrients throughout our bodies. Even slight dehydration can cause low energy and high health risks.

In the weight loss world, the human body often confuses dehydration and thirst as being hungry. We also desperately need water to flush fat cells.

The Mayo Clinic suggests a rough estimate for required water per day for men to be about 3 liters and for women, 2.2 liters. That’s while emphasizing that activity, climate, and many other factors can significantly change those requirements.

  • Improves skin
  • boosts immune system
  • flushes fat cells and toxins
  • promotes weight loss
  • promotes regularity
  • increases energy
  • prevents muscle cramps
  • cheaper than most beverage choices like latte’s

Drink up my dear community of health-conscious peeps!! The question that pops for me – Is there such a thing as drinking too much water? I suspect not! It’s so easy to do, yet so easy not to do. If you make one change, only one change, please let it be THIS one!
All my love!
