Live Healthy by Drinking Water

We all know that water is good for us through our common sense. It is a powerful substance itself. By drinking more water each day is one of the best ways to improve your overall health. The concept of "Absorb Water" is very unique but still easy and it allows you to drink and consume different foods and liquids as well as water.

At first, you have to decide how much water you need for your body. It totally depends on your body weight, climate and activity level. Drinking more water will help in many ways. It will keep your body fit and avoid overeating as well. Be sure that you consult your doctor or physician before making any lifestyle changes radically.

You can find your daily water needs by calculating your weight through. Divide your weight (in kilograms) by 30 (for example, if someone weighs 70 kg will need 2.3 liters per day). Or in the event you weigh 150 pounds then you need to drink 75 ounces of water a day. Averages of eight liters of water are needed for one person, every day. After measuring the amount of daily intake of water takes longer if you miss your target. On hot days you need more water, because more water to counteract the fluid you lose in sweat. Observe the color of your urine. If it is clear then you are drinking enough water.

Drinking Water May Speed Weight Loss

  • The researchers estimate that during the year, a person that intake of 1.5 liters per day burns an extra 17,400 calories.
  • Increase in metabolic rate differed in men and women.
  • If you drink water before meal, it help to eat less portion of food

Take purified water; others may not be lovely for your teeth. In some countries, tap water is unsafe and may cause disease. It also tastes lovely on the other hand you may find that tap water leaves a bad taste or smell in your mouth. You can also add some lemons, cucumber slices, min leaves or limes to your water, which makes it taste better. If it taste lovely for you then drink cold water. It will help you in other way. Let you know; cold water takes energy for your body to regulate the temperature, and does burn some calories.

By eating water rich food also help you to cover your every day water needs. Such as- watermelon, Cranberry or take egg (75% of it is water), tomato directly or making juice by them. Herbal tea, coffee, seltzer water and soup, all can count as part of the every day water intake.

But sometimes it becomes difficult to take larger amounts of liquid. You can purchase a water bottle & calculate in case you keep missing your target repeatedly. This will let you basically see how much portion of water you are consuming. Keep a glass or cup of water next to you when you are at your table at work. Drink from it regularly as you are working. Drink slowly but keep drinking. If any of these ideas didn't working then use a reminder. For example- wear a digital watch that beeps at the beginning of each hour, which will reminds you to take water. Having a cool/cute cup or bottle can encourage you to drink out of it; by this you can drink more water every day. Smaller size glasses & Crunch Ice also help to intake more water.

Water as a beauty product

  • It moves toxins out of your body faster.
  • It makes your skin healthier.
  • Reduces acne

Inadequate water intake affects the brain's function first, which can become risky. Kidney issue may also occur for lack of taking water. But people with hypertension or serious heart conditions need to keep away from excess water. Be positive to alternate sports drinks with regular water to keep your electrolytes in balance, in the event you plan on doing heavy extended exercise, dehydration may also occur in the event you take less water.

Researchers found that daily drinking seven glasses of water to significantly reduce several types of cancer. It also makes up muscles of 75%, 22% of bones & 83% of the blood. Water also helps to maintain the part of the waste removal process, convert food in to energy, regulates body temperature & so on.

So friends make drinking water a daily habit.. Few months ago I usually drink coke more in daily life. But now I replace it with water. It saves me interesting amount of money and my skin getting better in last few months. So what I feel is , drinking water is simple and easy task but its very  beneficial.

      Hi there. This was a really good read. I still have to discipline myself to drink more water. I start off doing well with drinking at least two 8 oz glasses a day. I know I need to drink two more glasses per day. I think it’s a matter of no taste and the fact I end up running and using the “necessary” every hour because my bladder is too full! voted up!

      Good Hub. Water's positive effects are greatly underestimated.

      I always drink water depending on how my body reacts. General rule is 8 glasses a day but I just drink depending on how much my body can take. I am not really a water lover but over the years, I have been trying to drink as much as my body can take as I know it's benefits.

      Well, I keep saying 'my body can take' because I believe that water can be poisonous if drank too much. When I don't feel like drinking but I still drink a glass of water, I feel dizzy and nausea. Pardon me on the next sentence. I always follow the rule by looking at my urine. When it gets yellowish, I will consume more water.
