Water relieves the body of harmful toxins, such as those that are caused by illness and stress.
By infusing hydration into your system, your body pumps out unwanted chemicals that will slow you down and make your body function less healthily.
8 glasses of water is the minimum if you wish to retain a properly functioning machine.
Many people get their water from fruits, such as apples, watermelons and berries.
One piece of fruit, depending on the size, can count for as much as half of a glass of water.
The added benefit of fruit is that in addition to helping to hydrate you, fruit can add healthy amounts of vitamins and minerals to your core diet.
Fruit also fills the stomach and energises you.
Because fruit contains very few calories, it is a good food to ll up on.
However, fruit does contain fructose, which is a type of sugar.
Fructose will spike the level of sugar in your bloodstream, which will give you energy.
Yet, if that energy is not consumed readily, the fructose will turn to fat (if only a small amount of it.)
There are beverages and activities that dehydrate your body quickly so that your essential amount of water intake needs to be increased.
Beverages that deplete water from your body include sodas, coffee, tea and alcohol.
In order to ensure that you stay properly hydrated, drink one glass of water for every glass of soda or other dehydrating beverage.
Also, for every half-hour of sweat-inducing exercise, you should drink at least one cup of water.
If you are exercising in a particularly humid environment, you may have to drink more water in order to avoid headaches, illness and overall dehydration.
Water truly can aid your weight-loss process if you are diligent about consuming generous portions of it.
Many people find that carrying a water bottle with them everywhere they go is the best way to remain tempted to treat your body right.
