I have one word for you: Water.
People always want to question something. It’s in their blood. It’s always the same question. How much water do we need? Why do we need it? If my weight is this, how much water do I need to drink to lose a few pounds?
When my new clients bombard me with questions like these I always tell them to calm down.
Water is water and if I tell you how much you need in a day, you won’t hold it down to that amount.
When I started working with people I was focused on telling them that they need to drink approximately 2.5 to 3 liters of water every day.
The percentage of how many people held to that amount was really small. You need to make water your habit. Your daily routine.
I had one client that was drinking 3 liters of water in 2 hours just because she didn’t want to spend the day drinking water.
The worst part was that she came to me saying that drinking water makes her bloated.
I know, I know, you drink water only when you are thirsty. Let me share a few thoughts about that.
Did you know that dehydration comes in even before your body tells you that you are thirsty?
Let’s look at the symptoms:
- Dry eyes
- Swollen tongue
- Low blood pressure
- Muscle cramps
- Low mood
- Cold hands and feet
- Sunken eyes
- Dry mouth
- Heart palpitations
- Dry skin
- Low energy
- Dark colored urine
According to Dr.Mercola, a normal and healthy person urinates 7 – 8 times a day. This is extremely important for knowing how to proceed with your water intake.
For that matter, I have found an infographic that clearly shows all the reasons why you need to stay hydrated all the time.

Stay hydrated, stay foolish!
Make sure your friends get this. They need water in their lives, too.
