Every cell, tissue, and organ in our body needs water to work properly and do its function. Because the biggest part of the body is water, then this should not be surprising.
Hydration is something that is most important if we want to keep the body energized, or maybe lose weight.
If we are not hydrated properly it can cause weight gaining. Most of the reactions that happen in our body need the right hydrating, including metabolizing food.
“Being even 1% dehydrated can be a reason for a significant drop in metabolism,” said Web MD.
Drink water to avoid overeating
Drinking enough water can stop the confusion that our body feels about the dilemma is it hungry or thirsty. It can also stop us to overeat. That means you have to drink enough water before every meal. Read the list below and find out what dehydration can cause:
Dry skin, dry mouth, dizziness, low blood pressure, weakness, headache, constipation, muscle cramps, fainting, heart palpitations etc.
“Chronic dehydration may affect your organs and lead to kidney stones, cholesterol problems, constipation, and liver, joint, and muscle damage,” thinks Mercola.
I don’t know how much water should i drink?
Mostly it depends on your weight. It is unnecessary to say that the heavier you are, the more water and energy you need. So, if you want to calculate how much water do you need then you should have in thought this:
- Measure your weight
- Multiply by 67% (2/3) if you want to calculate how many ounces water you will have to drink every day. For example, if you have 133lbs, you have to drink approximately 89 ounces of water on daily basis.
- Account for exercise It is recommendable to drink 12 ounces of water on daily basis after every half an hour of your time for physical activity (based on heavy exercise).
100 pounds = 67 ounces
110 pounds = 74 ounces
120 pounds = 80 ounces
130 pounds = 87 ounces
