What You Need To Know About Water

How Much Should I Drink?
Take your weight in pounds and divide it by 2. The result is how many ounces of water you should drink each day.

Dasani and Aquafina waters, two of the biggest brands in America are reprocessed tap water from cities around the country. One of Aquafina's sources is the Detroit River!!

Bottled? Tap? Filtered?
Water distillers are extremely effective at removing everything - unfortunately even good minerals - from water. The water is mineral free. A growing body of evidence suggests that completely mineral free water is worse for your body than water with dissolved minerals in it.
A distiller is halfway to your goal. You won't have anything bad in your water, but it can adversely affect your health in other ways.

Best Times to Drink Water? Here's a typical timetable for healthy water consumption:

8-16 oz before breakfast (it will help you know if you are really hungry because often you think you’re hungry when it’s either fatigue or thirst)

8-16oz before lunch and 8-16oz before supper.

This might not sound like a lot of water, or to some people who don’t drink water at all it might sound a lot of water to fit in one day!

Try having a little every 20 minutes. Keep of a mug of water at your desk and sip at it throughout the day. Know how much the cup holds and set yourself a goal; “I will have 5 mugs full during my word day”. I keep a mug of water and also a litre bottle at my desk so I don’t always have to get up to refill the mug (it might sounds silly but I know I won’t get in my goal if I don’t do it this way)

If you try this out for a few weeks (or better yet make it a permanent habit!) you`ll find you`ll have more energy, be more alert, eat less (because you`ll figure out what is true hungry and what is thirst) and you`ll probably even see your skin glow a little!
