Water and weightloss

One of the most important tips I have for clients, drink more water!

Every day your body loses water through urine, sweat, and breathing. If you don't consume enough water you may experience symptoms such as headaches, tiredness, and difficulty concentrating. 

Some of the benefits of staying hydrated are:
Muscle Fuel
Clearer skin
Lack of fatigue
Blood normalizer
Calorie control
Joint greaser
Removes toxins

Water makes up about two thirds of your body with a high concentrate in your muscles. Water makes up about 50 percent of our total body weight. 
Also, water is the regulation of body temperature and ideal exercise performance. Lack of hydration can greatly affect your ability to workout to your full potential. Drink plenty of water before and after exercise.

Okay, whatever. How much should I drink?
t depends on your size and weight, and also on your activity level and where you live,” Nessler says. “In general, you should try to drink between half an ounce and an ounce of water for each pound you weigh, every day.” For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, that would be 75 to 150 ounces of water a day. If you’re living in a hot climate and exercising a lot, you’d be on the higher end of that range; if you’re in a cooler climate and mostly sedentary, you’d need less.

And not to gross you out, but you could also use the urine chart to judge.

Keep in mind though that if you have recently taken a multivitamin, the B vitamin content may turn your urine bright yellow. This is normal and nothing to be concerned about. 

Lastly. Some people just DON'T like the taste of water. I've got you covered.
Infused water is perfectly acceptable.

Lemon, raspberries, oranges, cucumber you name it. A little but of organic fruit turns that hydration tactic into a cocktail!

As an experiment, drink the recommended amount of water, every day, for a month. Note your mood, energy level, and skin changes. You'll be impressed. #Watereveryday!
