Water, water everywhere! How much water do you need on a daily basis and what are the benefits?
In general, 4-6 cups for healthy people. That can vary with exercise and the heat. Plus, all beverages contain water, including caffeinated. These can be dehydrating but they do add to a net positive contribution to total fluids consumed. However water is still the best choice. Sugar leads to weight gain and inflammation. Drink your fluids gradually through the day and eat water-rich foods. Benefits of water:
Carries nutrients and oxygen to cells.
Normal blood pressure.
Check your water intake by buying a large jug that labels the fluid ounces and or keep track on a fitness app such as My Fitness Pal.
Keep fluid and stay hydrated! Love, The Chix
