How much WATER should I drink?

One of the most common issues I see is clients not drinking enough water and hydrating their body every day.

If you think of your body as a bunch of pipes and there's no water flowing you're soon going to have sludge accumulating

There’s a lot of information out there saying 8 glasses or 2 litres, but to me that's not quite going to cut it!

  • The brain requires about 1-1.5L per day. And this is plain water, not tea or juice.

  • The whole body, not just the brain is affected by hydration or dehydration.

  • Our blood, composed of about 83% percent water and is the ‘lifeline’ of your body, so you want it to be healthy!

  • Many people with digestive problems are related to not consuming enough water.

How Much Water Should I Drink?

When you rise in the morning, start your day with a big glass of water and some exercise such as a 30-45 minute walk. You may add a pinch of salt to aid hydration.

We need to replace the water lost each day through our body's elimination process, and put extra in so we can hydrate.

The general rule I live by is 1 litre per 22 kg of body weight. Sometimes I drink more, but this is my minimum. Water intake will also depend on where you live and the climate you are exposed to, how active you are and how much you are sweating out.

It might seem like a lot if you are overweight but being correctly hydrated will help eliminate waste and fats and kick up the metabolism.
