Drinking a gallon of water a day seems like a chore. Normally people don't drink close to a gallon of water a day and many aren't aware of the benefits it possesses. To start off, our body is made up of about 60% water. With such a large water to body ratio, why aren't we drinking enough water?
Water is so beneficial, so easy, so free, yet so easily overlooked. If you have frequent headaches, constipated, or always hungry, water might be the answer for you. I used to suffer from frequent headaches and my only relief was 200mg of ibuprofen. If people think headaches are"normal" and just pop a pill to relieve the symptoms, then you are wrong. It can be a multitude of other factors but it's important to treat the most common underlying cause dehydration! After increasing my water consumption I don't get headaches anymore and don't even buy ibuprofen.
The answer is no. Medline recommends 8 (8oz) glasses a day, and others suggest taking your weight into consideration. To be honest, you can't overdo drinking water because anything excess will simply be excreted by the kidneys a.k.a peeing a lot! For example, a person that weighs 160 pounds should drink 5 water bottles, which is a little less than 3/4 of a gallon.
Proper hydration is key for optimal health, not consuming enough can lead to serious complications, including but not limited to dehydration. All of our organs and cells need water to function.
Benefits of water include:
With the perks water has, why not give a daily gallon of water a try? You can always start with less and build your way to the recommended water intake. Be ready to feel more focused, energized, and less hungry. Ultimately small changes in your life will help you become a better version of yourself.
