H2O Intolerance

HAHA! What movie is that from??? …. You got it Finding NEMO!!! (Refer to the Title of the post ^^)

Seriously though, why is water so important? Is hydration necessary?

First off, adult bodies are comprised of approximately 60% of water. (water.usgs.gov) Water is dispersed throughout our vital organs and our blood plasma. Secondly, it regulates our body’s internal body temperature and metabolizes proteins and carbohydrates. Third, it flushes out waste and toxins in our bodies.

Obviously it is beneficial and mandatory; say the least, to drink water! Hydration is absolutely necessary because our bodies need water to survive. We would only live about 3-5 days without it. The general rule of thumb is to drink about 8 glasses a day. However, depending on your fitness levels, you may need to drink even more. For myself, I have to drink one gallon a day or I cannot quench my thirst and feel dehydrated. Just to name another perk of drinking water is when you think you are hungry, drink water; you may find your body actually needed only water. The absolute best thing about water is THERE ARE NO CALORIES. HOLLA!!!

Water = “Magic Pill”, so drink up! #leggo#thirstylife  ✌
