How much water should I drink?

b1I often get this question and 99% of the time, individuals are not drinking enough. I could go into this long rant on the benefits of water and how bad dehydration is for virtually every physiological process of the body, but I want to stick to the question.

 

So, how much water is enough? The recommendation given by Dr. Bob Marshall, PHD in Nutrition is 1/2 of your bodyweight in ounces + 10%.

For example, if you weigh 200lbs, then you would need 120 oz of water per day (that’s just shy of a gallon 128oz).

You may be thinproperty-youking, ‘That’s impossible! I’d be going to the bathroom every 2-3 hours.’ Actually, urinating every 2-3 hours is quite normal if you are getting enough water.

If you are only drinking 60 oz per day, then I would suggest increasing 8oz every 3 days to allow your body to adjust.

Also, try starting your day with the largest intake of water..32 oz or so. Don’t wait until you feel thirsty later on because you are already dehydrated at that point.

Genetics Do Not Equal Destiny

hp5By Angel King, Certified Health Coach

When it comes to our health, is it luck, genetics or do lifestyle choices determine our health destiny?  Countless studies have been done to determine this very answer. While there is some debate in various areas of health, the vast majority of evidence shows we can choose.  Your body is meant to be healthy; it should not need drugs or surgery except in times of emergency. Why, then, have we become so dependent on these interventions? The answer is this: all too often it is the food we eat that is making us sick.

According to Dr. John McDougal, “The current diet is unlike anything that was eaten over the last hundreds of years. Our blood, arteries, and cells are not designed to function under so much fat and cholesterol. Our intestines are not designed to function in the absence of fiber. Our immune system is not designed to function without an abundant supply of plant-based nutrients and phytochemicals. With our cells drowning in fat, cholesterol, animal proteins and artificial chemicals, and our immune system is deprived of what it needs to maintain itself, it’s no wonder so many of us get cancer, heart disease, high blood pressure, adult-onset diabetes, arthritis, osteoporosis, and other age-related illnesses.”

So then, if food is a part of the problem it IS part of the solution. Sadly, the healthy food today is largely produced in depleted soil. While we should continue to make healthy food choices, it is nearly impossible to eat the amount of healthy food necessary to maintain a proper level of nutrition. Supporting our diets with plant-based, live-source, preservative-free supplements is now crucial to our health. Try adding Greens caps and/or Chlorella to your daily regimen. Don’t wait until something happens. Make the decision today to take control of your health the easy way!
