Right now I feel like I’m drinking my body weight in water! The sweltering weather is bonkers here on the East Coast and ice cold water is the only thing that I feel like drinking.
I NEVER used to drink enough water. I either forgot, drank tea or coffee instead and just didn’t include it as part of my diet. What a mistake :). Once I started working out on a regular basis and changed my eating patterns, I found I naturally needed more water and so now I drink between 5-8 glasses per day. This has resulted in clearer skin, improved digestion and frankly more energy during the day. Very very useful.
Here’s a great infograph on the benefits of drinking water for health and wellbeing that includes a simple math guideline for getting enough hydration. Hope it helps!
