When there’s lack of water, your body can be put into a dehydrated state potentially causing confusion, headaches, loss and strength and fatigue. Woman should drink 2.2 liters (8 to 9 glasses) of water a day (men, 3L or 11 to 12 glasses). In my experience, people who are not aware of how much they are drinking, don’t drink enough.
Nearly two thirds of the human body is water. Water is essential and involved in every function of our body. Proper hydration improves the quality and efficiency of your workout, as well as reduces fatigue and recovery time. That’s why it’s so important to hydrate yourself before as well as after your workout session.
Proper hydration is vital to your athletic performance and health. To perform your best, you need to take in an adequate amount of fluid before, during and after your workouts. Just a 2% decrease in bodyweight caused by dehydration can reduce athletic performance by 20%!
Ask yourself: Am I you really hungry or just thirsty?
It’s difficult for the body to tell the difference between hunger and thirst. So if you are feeling hungry, you may just be dehydrated. Try to grab a glass of water before jumping on a snack. For some people, a very easy way to lose fat is simply to kick the soda habit. You can decrease your caloric intake by hundreds of calories each day just by replacing the sugary drinks with some water, infused water or unsweetened tea.
You can make really tasty drinks with dramatically less calories than a snack.
