Drinking enough water each day can completely change your body, from how you look on the outside to how you feel on the inside. I drink 3 liters of water a day and if I am doing exercise on that day I make sure I get in another half a liter to replace the fluid I have lost while I'm feeling the burn!
For men it's suggested they have 13 cups a day which is about 3 liters and for women it's 9 cups, the same as 2.2 liters.
When you are working out, it's necessary to drink more water to replenish what you have lost. It's also a good idea to drink water with electrolytes to get the water quickly back to the muscles so you can continue with a good workout.
3 Benefits to drinking 3 liters of water a day:
Being hydrated maintains a youthful glow and improves skin complexion. Drinking the required amount of water each day will make a significant difference when you are consistent. When your skin is hydrated, the texture is softer and lines are minimized, leaving you with flawless, younger looking skin. Not only is it an inexpensive way to achieve great skin, it's one of the best!
Water flushes out all the bad toxins in the body. It will not flush out the good nutrition; it will simply clean and detox the body. Drinking enough water each day will help with your digestion and regular visits to the bathroom are a good thing!
3. Staying Full.
Often we think that we are hungry when actually we are just thirsty! Keeping a water bottle with you to drink at all times is going to keep you feeling full. I eat every three hours so during the times when I don't eat I am having lots of water to keep my body hydrated.
Just like anything, drinking more water can become a habit. Once that habit is established, it will become much easier to do. You will start to feel a difference within a few days. Your energy levels will increase, your skin will be smoother and more radiant and you will feel full longer, helping you avoid over-eating and naughty treats!
