Do You Really Need 8 Glasses Of Water Per Day?
I try to hydrate with 8 glasses of water to keep my organs and skin healthy. I especially drink a ton of water after a hard workout. Sometimes I drink so much water that my stomach bulks out from it! I came across a study that changed my mind about the proper water intake.
- We’ve all been told that we should be drinking eight full glasses of water each day to keep healthy, but is that really necessary?
- While the advice of washing back each calorie consumed with 1 ml of water has been around since 1945, we can sometimes forget that we take in water naturally from other sources, like fruits and other beverages.
- According to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not, if you’re eating a normal diet, you’re likely over hydrating. “It’s probably best not to make yourself crazy trying to hit this mark,” the site reveals.
- Ripley’s suggests that we listen to our bodies, taking note when feeling thirsty.
I guess we can put our water bottles down and relax about making sure we always have those water bottles on hand. Drink when you’re thirsty, eat when you’re hungry, and laugh always! – Maryann Morgan – Joel & Maryann in the Morning
