Can you guess the single most IMPORTANT nutrient to help boost performance for EVERY activity except for long endurance events?
Nope, it’s not protein… Or carbs… Or caffeine!
Here’s a SCARY statistic — 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. Yikes!
The benefits of drinking enough water are countless… From clear skin to healthy kidneys to strong muscles, but drinking enough water is CRUCIAL for weight loss. ‼️
So… How much water should you drink?
That really depends on your body, your goals, and your lifestyle, but as a general guide, try to drink 0.5-1 ounce of water for each pound you weigh.
Check out my BEST 3 tips to help you stay hydrated:
1. Have a water bottle or glass with you 24/7. Have one in the car… keep it at your desk… Even on the coffee table while watching TV! Simply SEEING your water bottle is a great visual reminder to drink more water.
2. Set a reminder on your phone. Set an alarm for every 2-3 hours to remind you to get up and drink a glass of water.
3. Include water-rich foods into your meals. Many of us forget, but ALL fruits, veggies, and even meats contain water. Adding nutritious, whole, healthy foods into your meals can add up to 20% of your daily water intake!
