How Much Water?

Question about water 💦
 Take your bodyweight, divide it in half and add 15 = # of ounces you should have daily

Symptoms of dehydration:
-low urine quantity and deep yellow color
-tension headaches or migraines
-being tired or sleepy
-dry mouth
-flaky or dry skin/kips
-feeling dizzy
-difficulty remembering simple facts
-1% dehydrated = 10% loss in performance

Common causes of dehydration:
-certain diets (keto, low carb, low calorie)
-some prescription drugs

😀 Fun facts:
-It takes anywhere from 5-120 minutes for water to be fully absorbed into the bloodstream after consumption
-eating food slows down water absorption
-to amplify water absorption – make sure you have enough salt in your diet
-use good sources like pink Hymilaian sea salt
-eat fiber rich foods which aid the body in retaining water in the large and small intestines
-we lose 2-3 liters of water per day (1.5 liters through urination alone)
-other ways we lose water is thru sweating and even breathing and crying
-alcohol is a diuretic so match any alcoholic drink with 8 oz of water
-new fact: ☕caffeine is NOT a diuretic, it’s a smooth muscle relaxant which makes it easier to go to the bathroom
