No matter what your goals are, you need to water it down...
(i.e. Drink more water)
Let's shed some light on this topic.
"No! You're not drinking enough."
As wellness coaches, we've had this discussion with 100s of people, and it's always the same... '2 litres right?'
Many people seem to submit to the notion that if their body is not getting the water that it needs, they would feel thirsty. This would be the body's way of telling them to drink more water. This is true to some extent - the only problem is that by the time this thirst mechanism actually kicks in, you're already in the early stages of dehydration.
Some of the early signs of dehydration are:
- Fatigue and/or dizziness
- Mood swings
- Foggy thinking and poor concentration
- Muscle cramps
- Back or joint ache
- Dull, dry skin and/or pronounced wrinkles.
- Infrequent urination; dark, concentrated urine
- Bad breath
- Sugar cravings
- Weight gain
But how much is enough? That all depends on your current body weight...
"Not tonight honey... I have a headache"
"In that case, I learnt from ShopWellness.co.za that you probably just need to drink more water."
