Water, too little too late!!

If you feel thirsty, its probably too late.  What I mean is, you have already taken your bodies fluid content below the optimal level and damage is being done.

I know there is a lot said all the time about water intake.  How it is good for you, how it should be done every day and all the different amounts that different groups push.  But the reality is, not enough is said about this.

You know all the arguments.  Your body is made up of between 60 to 75% water.  You need to take in water to replenish what you loose every day even just through breathing.  If you exercise it becomes even more important.  We should have 8-8 ounce glasses of water a day.  We should have 3 liters of water a day.  From some extreme sports people, they say we should have 1 gallon of water a day.

No matter the amount, no matter the base reason, it cannot be denied that water is essential to our bodies.  All of our cells contain water and must have water to survive and replenish.  Yet, the majority of the worlds population is in a constant state of dehydration.

No matter what kind of operations, medications, applications, exercise and more that anyone does to try and stay fit, look, feel and be younger, none of it is going to matter if you do not drink enough water.  In my opinion, water should be at the top of everyone’s list for staying fit and young.  My personal recommendation on this?  3 liters of water a day for a man and 2 liters of water a day for women.

You should basically have a water bottle with you all day and be sipping from it at regular intervals.  You body can only absorb so much at any given time so gulping down huge amounts in one shot and hoping that will last the day, ahhhh nooo!  You need to spread it out, smaller sips all day long.

I promise you, if you will take this seriously, drink at least 2 liters of water a day, over the course of the whole day, you will feel better. In a short amount of time you will find improvement in your skin, your hair, your finger nails, your bowl movements, your urine, your mood and more.  It literally effects every part of your body as it is a large part of your body.

A glass of warm water in the morning will help loosen things up after sleeping all night.  A glass of warm water before you go to bed can give your body some water to absorb through the nite and help you sleep.  Have a glass of water at meal time instead of pop or juice.  In fact, you should run away from soda as if it were the plague.

So raise your glass high and make a toast to drinking more water.  Its good for you, it tastes good, it is you!
