Water, Water, Water

Can you guess what today's blog is going to be about? You guessed it; WATER. We have all heard it before; our bodies need water. I am always being told that I do not drink enough water. So I researched how much water should I be drinking. I found conflicting studies and research. What I did find though was an interesting article that if you eat a healthy diet, about 20% of your water may come from the foods you eat. Water is an obvious source for your daily fluid needs. Other good beverages include mile, herbal teas especially green tea, low-sodium broth, and juice both 100% fruit and vegetable juices.


We all know what good sources are and we know that our body needs water but how much? So I found online a daily hydration calculator. I was asked weight, fitness level, climate, and a few other questions. Once it was complete I was told how much water that day I need to consume. Today I need to consume 111.2 ounces. WOW I am not drinking enough water. I have a 16 ounce water bottle and need to drink 6 of them. I am only drinking 2-3 of them a day. With my healthy eating I can reduce my water to 89 ounces a day so I only need to drink 4-5 bottles a day. Time to increase the water.. Drink up everyone.

  1. The easiest indicator is to simply watch your urine. If it's clear, or close to clear, you're drinking enough water. :)
