We’ve all heard the statistic- our bodies are 70-80% water! But somehow most Americans barely meet the minimum when it comes to daily water intake!
Here are some things to remember:
💧 thirst is often mistaken for hunger
💧 dehydration can cause symptoms like lethargy, headaches, and fatigue
💧 once you’re thirsty, you’re already dehydrated
💧 your body needs water to carry nutrients to your cells and to function properly
Did you guys know that when you don’t drink enough water, your body starts to hoard the water and store it between your cells – causing water retention? When this happens, you become dehydrated and your kidneys have to call on your liver for help. When your liver has to help with kidney function, it stops burning fat…and stores it all…in your stomach.
So for a flatter tummy, and a good functioning body, drink water! At least 1/2 of your body weight in ounces- every day! 👉🏼 example: if you weigh 150, you should consume 75oz of water daily.
