Why You Should Join Our Water Challenge

Coffee and iced tea.  That’s all I ever drank.  Until I got sick, that is.

It took about a year to figure out what was making me sick.  But, once I knew, I got a real education.  Fast.  That’s when I learned about water.  I also learned that I was in a constant state of dehydration, which was slowly destroying my body.

The first thing I learned about water is that I was supposed to drink half of my body weight in ounces of water every day.  Why?  I’m glad you asked!

:: Water makes up approximately 70% of the human body.

That’s almost 3/4 of your body!  Just think about that for a minute.  3/4 of our body! Water is clearly an integral part of our body and therefore an integral part of our lives. Water affects every single system in our body, large or small.

:: Water flushes toxins from your system.

Not enough water, and your body will reabsorb the toxins and fat.  Yuck!  Staying hydrated also keeps your bowels moving, which prevents constipation and sickness. Even mild dehydration will throw off nearly all of the balance in our bodies as toxins build up in our body, making us feel sick.

:: Mood, attention, memory and motor coordination are all affected by insufficient water intake.

Symptoms of dehydration include brain fog, grogginess, slow functioning, lethargy, headache, migraine, nausea and always feeling cold.  In severe cases, dehydration can cause death.

:: Once you are feeling thirsty, you are already dehydrated.

I’m going to repeat that.  Once you are feeling thirsty, you are already dehydrated.  The good news is that all of this is preventable, simply by drinking enough water.

So, who’s up for a water challenge???

    I’m ready for a water challenge! I’ve been thinking about this for weeks. I never drink sodas or coffee, I do drink tea – and DO drink water. BUT I feel I could be doing better at it…..maybe this is the way?

    Here’s a tip. If you’re into hot drinks try boiling water. I know that sounds obvious but I used to drink way too much tea and coffee. I found it was a habit of just having a hot beverage to hand and tried boiled water, sometimes with a squeeze of lemon or orange in it. It meant that I drank a lot less caffeine.

    Love the blog Faigy!

    Great information. I’ve only recently started drinking more water in an effort to cut down on diet soda
