HOW MUCH WATER SHOULD YOU DRINK?

Are you drinking enough water daily? Because, water is the answer y’all! It is seriously the easiest thing to change in your daily routine and it can have life changing results. I said it. Life changing. As in no more constipation, weakness, low blood pressure, dizziness and confusion.

Water makes up about 73% of the human heart and about 60% of our bodies. It is crucial we are replenishing it with the foods we eat and what we are drinking. Nothing beats WATER.

How Much Should you Drink?

This is not a one size fits all answer, as it depends on your activity level, climate, and your size, but a good general rule of thumb is 90-125 oz for women and 125-155 oz for men.
