I'll start off with some great nutritional tips as this will be my topic for the next few months.
The weather is heating up and if you have gone for a run, jog, or even walk outside you know how easy it is to sweat bullets out in the sun. We all need to consume more water to maintain a healthy condition.
Here are some benefits of drinking water and methods to see if you're drinking enough.
Can prevent weight gain (can flush out fat by-products, suppress appetite, zero calories, boosts metabolism)
Hydrates skin giving you a healthier and younger appearance (hydrates & moisturizes skin tissue)
Reduces hunger (often what you perceive is hunger is actually thirst)
Combats ailments such as headaches and back-aches (can lubricate joints, combats dehydration which causes these ailments)
Can flush toxins out of the body
Can prevent against sickness (helps immune system)
About 60% of the body is composed of water
Essential for life as we cannot store it, nor conserve it
Dehydration leads to fatigue
So What To Do:
8 glasses is somewhat of a myth
Drink plenty of fluids before, during and after exercise, replenish the weight lost, don’t rely on thirst, check urine color
So drink that water and drink it often!!!
