Hydration can’t be that important can it? YES IT CAN. A large percentage of your body is made up of water (50-75%) and dehydration can have some serious consequences. If you start to feel thirsty, chances are you are already dehydrated and mild symptoms of dehydration could be kicking in. Headaches are an early sign of dehydration; at this stage you must increase WATER consumption. If you consume a soda or a caffeinated beverage when dehydrated, you’re only going to further increase your level of dehydration. The body is made up of mainly what? Exactly, Water, therefore we must replenish our fluid levels with water. Prolonged dehydration can lead to severe problems like passing out, electrolyte abnormalities, seizures, renal failure and potentially strokes. Your urine is the easiest way for you to be able to monitor your hydration levels, the clearer the urine, the more hydrated you’re. Not only can the consumption of water decrease your cravings for food, it will increase your body’s ability to metabolize food, meaning, you eat less and hydrate more, DOUBLE WIN! So, how much water should you consume a day?
However, you must also take in to account the climate you live/work in and how much you sweat when you exercise. All fluids lost through your perspiration must be replenished for your body to perform maximally. The bottom line, drink more water and watch your bodies functions improve dramatically!
