EVERY DAY I’M GUZZELIN’…

Do you drink enough H2O?

 

Let’s be real for a minute. Yes, our lives are super busy and if you are anything like me you don’t drink enough water… enough coffee yes, water no!

We truly take drinking water for granted. In all seriousness, we are lucky we even have access to clean drinking water, many do not.

A large percent of people still fail to drink the recommended daily amount of water which can have a massive impact on your overall health.

With so many theories around drinking water, how much to drink, when to drink, what to drink, it’s easy to become confused.

 

How much should we drink?

 

Everybody’s body is different; however, The Institute of Medicine has found that on average Men are advised to drink around 3 litres a day and woman 2.2 litres to stay hydrated.

A little more than the eight glasses a day we have grown to know.

 

So why drink water?

 

Around 70% of our body is water and your brain 90%… That explains a lot…

The body’s cells and organs NEED water.

What is hydrated?

Being hydrated means having adequate water in your body so that your body can function correctly.

Water is lost constantly throughout the day, sweating, urinating and who would have thought, even breathing!

Yes, some of this water can be required through foods with high water content but that’s not enough, we must drink the recommended amount.

 

Drinking the recommended amount of water can help prevent…

 

  • Dehydration
  • Chronic Kidney Disease
  • UTI
  • Kidney Stones
  • Anaemia
  • Problem Skin
  • Wrinkles
  • Headaches
  • Tiredness
  • Poor Concentration

 

Benefits…

 

  • Promotes Weight Loss
  • Increases Energy, Relieves Fatigue
  • Flushes Toxins
  • Keeps You Regular
  • Boosts Immune System
  • Clears Skin

 

So, it’s really a no-brainer… A good tip is to carry around a big 2 Litre bottle with you.

At lunch time ensure you have drunk that bottle and repeat.

 

I don’t know about you but I’m always weirdly proud when my pee is clear.

Like, hell yeah, I’m so damn hydrated.
