With the heat wave blanketing much of the country, the big question is: are you drinking enough water?
H2O not only keeps dehydration at bay, but it’s vital to your body’s overall functioning. Here’s what to know about getting plenty of agua.
- Drinking 64 ounces a day is a myth. Women need about 93 ounces and men about 125. You may need more or less depending on how hot it is and how many water rich foods you eat.
- The quickest way to tell if you’ve been drinking enough H2O is by the color of your pee. It should be clear or pale yellow.
To make sure you get enough water try these tips:
- Replace sugary drinks
- Set reminders
- Have water with meals
- Add flavor
- Drink water when you wake up
- Make festive ice cubes
- Drink it flat or bubbly
