Water: It’s Not Just For Plants!
There’s a reason every fitness guru and physician will tell you drink water, and lot’s of it! “It aids every aspect of bodily function“ and though there seem to be general rules that people adhere to for consumption, there is not really a one-size-fits-all answer for how much you should drink, according to the article from Everyday Health.
It is generally recommended that men should consume 128 ounces of water per day and women should consume
88 ounces, but that doesn’t necessarily mean you need to drink that much water daily. The moisture content of your food contributes to that number as well as the liquids you actually drink.
There are factors that affect how much water you should consumer per day:
Exercise: Engaging in any activity that makes you sweat means you need to drink extra water to compensate for the fluids lost.
Environment: Hot or humid weather increases the need to consumer more water to help lower your body temperature and replace the moisture you lose through sweating.
While it seems like a lot, there’s really no reason to NOT drink water during the day. It will only benefit you!
