Water

by Holly on May 25, 2009

Drink more water! Unless your drinking at least 8 glasses a day (more if your pregnant, breastfeeding or exercise frequently), you’re not drinking enough. Better yet, I recommend drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces, so if you weigh 130 pounds, drink 65 ounces of water. Almost all health problems from infertility (because of hormone imbalance) to high cholesterol to cancer can benefit from this simple step. When you opt for water, chances are you’re replacing sugary drinks, artificially sweetened soft drinks, or caffeinated beverages- all detrimental to your health. Your body is 65% water, and your brain is 85% water and water is needed for every bodily function. Here’s a fact that should make you reach for a glass: if you are dehydrated, your body pulls water from the large intestine to use, which in turn makes you constipated. Do you really want that toxic water that has been sitting with your poo to be recirculated into your bloodstream and around your body? Ew. I don’t. Go drink some water right now. Cheers!
