Say what?...I should be drinking how much water everyday?

More than 50% of your body is made up of water, so knowing that can help you realize the importance of keeping it hydrated. You can live a couple of weeks without food, but you would only survive a couple of days without water.

Most people don't drink enough water throughout each day, which can lead to headaches, dizziness, and sluggishness.
 

Did you know?

 

 
So, if I weigh 140 lbs, divide that by 2 = 70...that means I need to drink 70 oz. water daily.
Calculate your own and see if you are properly hydrated, if not keep reading...
 

 
Here are 10 reasons why you should drink more water each day:


1. Perfect For Weight Loss
(water has no fat, no calories, no carbs, no sugar and can help act as an appetitie suppressant)

2. Keeps Your Heart Healthy
(if you drink adequate water each day, studies have shown that it will decrease your chance of a heart attack).

3. Keeps You Energized
(being dehydrated can zap you of your energy and make you feel tired)

4. Natural Headache Cure
(some headaches are caused by lack of water; drink more to prevent and treat headaches)

5. Healthier Skin
(many celebrities swear that one of their best beauty secrets is drinking a lot of
water each day for clear and glowing skin)

6. Cleansing Effects
(water is used by the body to flush our toxins and waste)

7. Be More Productive
(water helps your body perform at it's best, including during exercise. Dehydration makes it hard to be as productive and active as you can be)

8. Digestion
(not only does water help organs to absorb nutrients better, it can also help with stomach acid problems)

9. Helps prevent/treat constipation
(sufficient hydration keeps things flowing along your gastrointestinal tract and prevents constipation. When you don't get enough fluid, the colon pulls water from stools to maintain hydration -- and the result is constipation)

10. Protects and cushions your vital organs, including your heart.
