HEALTH TIP: Do you know how much water is ideal to drink to stay hydrated throughout the day?
General, please drink between roughly 3/4 ounce of water for each pound you weigh. For example, if you weigh 150 pounds, drink 115 ounces of water a day.
Other SUGGESTIONS for healthy hydration: -
if you engage in moderate to high physical activity, drink more! A 1:1 ounce to pound ratio is better
- drink in between meals, but not during meal for good digestions. Generally stop drinking 15 minutes before and for 30 minutes after eating
- drink a big glass of water upon waking to get your hydration levels up early
- carry around a reusable water bottle so you can continue drinking throughout the day between meals
- if you don't love the taste of water, it will grow on you! But in the meantime, add a bit of fresh squeezed lemon or even a few flavored stevia drops or drink unsweetened tea
