Let’s Start with the Basics

How much water should you be drinking on a daily basis?  What do you consider water?  After practicing for almost 7 years, it already has come to my attention that most people are not drinking enough WATER.  I am not talking about juice or tea, but just plain water.  Did you know that our bodies are made up of approximately 75% water?  The adult body contains 32-42 quarts of fluid, and only 4-5 quarts of that number is blood.  What does that mean to you?  Adequate water intake is imperative for our bodies to function properly.  What is adequate water intake you might ask?  You should be drinking half your body weight in ounces on a daily basis.  Another common complaint is people hate drinking water.  One of the things about being in good health is that you are going to have to make some changes in order to insure that your body can function the way it is supposed to.  Don’t like the taste of water?  Add some lemon or even some cucumbers, blueberries, or strawberries.  All will naturally flavor your water to help you quench your thirst with the water your body needs.
