Are you drinking enough water?

Did you know that you should be drinking half your body weight (in oz.) of water per day?! To make the math simple, let’s pretend I’m 100 pounds. That means that I should be drinking 50 oz. of water EVERY day!

This is extremely important to remember, especially while experiencing HOT weather like we are in San Diego. Signs of dehydration can include low energy, headaches, cravings, brain fog and constipation. Also, sometimes when we think we are hungry, we are actually thirsty. Try drinking a glass of water and wait 20 minutes to see if you are actually hungry.

Try sprucing your water up by adding cucumber, lemon, mint or berries. And NO, I’m sorry, but tea, coffee, and juice do not count as water.

Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate πŸ™‚
