Just sitting here with my jug…
I try to drink a gallon a day!
Are you drinking enough water?
Our bodies are made up of nearly 65% water. The brain uses it, the organs, the skin, bones and even the way nutrients and waste are passed in and out of the cells. Drink too little water and you may be at risk for headaches, muscle cramps, dizziness, constipation and other nasty symptoms. However, if you drink an adequate amount of water you gain some great benefits such as a clearer mind, more energy, glowing skin, great digestion and water may even help your body metabolize body fat.
If you’re only drinking water when you’re thirsty, it’s too late- there’s a good chance that you’re already dehydrated.
A good rule of thumb is to invest in a water bottle and commit to sipping from it throughout the day. It will not only keep you hydrated, but it will also help curb food cravings.
(Or buy a gallon of spring water if you don’t mind looking like a goof-ball…. clearly, I don’t!) 🙂
