While food intake is an important part of nutrition, so is hydration. Water makes up a huge amount of blood volume so hydrating is an important part of blood circulation. Every system in your body depends on water. Even mild dehydration can drain your energy and make you tired.
How much? At least 64 ounces or 8 cups a day. Remember that fruits and vegetables that are high in water also contribute to your daily water needs. You should be rarely thirsty and should have clear urine output as indicators of proper hydration. Staying hydrated is crucial for better accessing your food needs
Start your day by drinking a glass of water. Drink a glass of water between meals as well as before, during, and after exercise. Make pure water or herbal tea your beverages of choice!
