How Much Water Should I Take In??
Jul 22, 2011
We are in the middle of a heat wave! How much water should we take in to avoid heat exhaustion and heat stroke? Activity levels definitely influence how much water we should consume. For my clients, the low end I recommend is 64 fl oz per day. Adding in activity, it should be even more! Not taking in enough water puts you in a state of dehydration, which can sap your energy.
Water helps flush out toxins in the body. Seeing as the body is comprised of 60% water, this is extremely important!
You should never feel "thirsty" as this can be a sign of dehydration. Keep your fluids up throughout the day to maintain body function AND feel excellent even when the temperature is rising outside!
