You Are Not Drinking Enough Water

By  

Water is essential for human health; over 60% of the human body consists of water, and the effects of dehydration can be life threatening.

A new study finds nearly half of Americans not drinking enough water.

Drinking enough water throughout the day doesn’t have to be a chore. Keri Glassman gives you some simple tips on how to stay hydrated and feeling your best:

An indicator of dehydration may be constant hunger:
“Because the human body is so unique that it will say ‘I want water’ in food, in any way, shape or form,” Webb said. “People just think that when they start to get a little weak or they have a headache, they need to eat something, but most often they need to drink.”

Dehydration is one of the easiest conditions to reverse, according to doctors, but it is also one of the most commonly overlooked. It can contribute to a long list of medical conditions, from respiratory and circulation problems to headaches, ulcers, high blood pressure, kidney disease, and even weight gain. (source)

Water for Weight Loss

Nutritionist Jennifer Cassetta gives you three tips for drinking water and losing weight:

Water is the first and most important step in your weight-loss journey. Water increases our metabolism and decreases our acidic level. It helps flush toxins from our body. Being dehydrated has real consequences: you’ll get sugar cravings, get afternoon headaches and feel tired.

It’s best to drink half your body weight in ounces each day. For example, someone who weighs 200 pounds should drink 100 ounces of water, Jennifer says. To make sure you drink enough water each day, follow these tips:
1. Carry around a water bottle and take sips throughout the day.
2. Flavor your water with lemons, limes or cucumbers.
3. If you get tired of drinking water, switch to herbal tea.
