The Importance of Hydration and Tips to Get Your Water in Every Day

Water May Suppress Appetite Naturally

  • Try drinking before a meal
  • Some studies have shown that a decrease in water intake causes fat deposits to increase

Best Treatment for Water Retention

  • The body perceives insufficient water as a threat to survival and holds onto every drop – resulting in swollen feet, legs and hands
  • Give your body plenty of water so that stored water will be released
  • Sodium – culprit, “wherever salt goes water follows” so, drink more water – water forced through the kidneys takes away excess sodium

Overweight / Larger People Need More Water

  • Water is key to fat metabolism, also, metabolized fat must be shed
  • Mayo clinic – body weight in pounds divided in half, convert into ounces, divided by 8 to determine cups needed

Weather / Exercise

  • Increase in hot weather (especially dry heat)
  • Drink before, during and after exercise – 1 cup within ½ hour, 4-8 ounces  every 20 minutes, 1 cup following.  Weigh before and after exercise Replace every pound lost with 20 ounces
  • Cold water absorbed faster than warm

Constipation

 

Having difficulty drinking the 8 cups of water that is recommended daily for most people? Plan! Plan! Plan!

  • Flavor it
  • Have it with every meal
  • Carry bottled water (drink on your way to work and on your way home) DRINK UP!
