5 Reasons to drink enough water

Water, there are people who never drink.  Actually I should drink more water. When I ask about what and how much someone drinks, the answer is often that drinking coffee or tea is supplemented with a glass of beer, wine or soft drinks. These people rarely or never drink a glass of water. Our body consists of 60-70% of water on average. This is also logical if you know that water is needed for many body functions. Tap Water is not healthy anymore, therefor filter.

Absorption of nutrients

Filtered water. So you need moisture for the distribution of nutrients and oxygen through your body: all the nutrients you eat and the oxygen you breathe are absorbed into your blood. This blood is pumped through the heart so that the nutrients and oxygen are transported through the blood. Blood consists of 92% water. In order to keep your blood flowing properly, you need sufficient water.

Flexible joints

Sufficient water is also important for supple joints. Joints are complex, they need the necessary maintenance. The cartilage in the joints acts like a kind of sponge: with every movement it sucks itself full of moisture (water). So water is needed to 'lubricate' the joints and provide nutrients.

Body temperature

Furthermore, water is needed to regulate the body temperature. In case of hot weather or intensive exercise you will perspire; a reaction from the body to prevent overheating. In order to perspire, water is needed and with a lot of perspiration it is also important to drink filtered water.

Good kidney function

When you drink too little, the kidneys have to work much harder to excrete waste and can therefore be damaged. Every cell in the body needs water to function properly, so insufficient intake of water can lead to dysfunction and illness. Fatigue and headaches are common consequences of drinking too little water. Filtered water. But I still drink coffee. Coffee and tea (except herbal tea) remove moisture, they cause dehydration. Soft drinks contain a lot of sugar. Beer and other alcoholic beverages contain alcohol and these also have the effect that this dries you out. That is why you, after drinking too much alcohol, get up with a headache the next day.

Life-saving

Drinking enough water is therefore vitally important, but how much do you have to drink? On average about 1.5 liters of water per day is sufficient. You really do not have to drink throughout the day, I even advise against this: every time you drink, the immune system comes into action to check whether the water is in order. And as I have written in a previous blog, it is not good if the immune system has to be active all day long. My advice is to drink 2 large glasses of water before each meal. With 3 meals per day you will receive 1.5 liters. Make sure you also get enough minerals. When you drink more water, you start peeing more and you lose minerals. This is also the case with heavy perspiration. You have probably noticed that your skin tastes salty after a lot of sweating, a sign that your salts / minerals have been excreted. In case of a shortage of minerals, your body will retain moisture, to keep the concentration of salts and minerals up to standard. You can notice this by getting thick feet or ankles. Filtered water.

Celtic sea salt

Celtic sea salt is unrefined salt which is extracted in Guérande in Brittany (France). Refined kitchen salt only ordered sodium and chlorine. 5 Tips to drink plenty of water at the Office. Celtic sea salt, on the other hand, contains about 80 different minerals and spores in addition to sodium chloride. With this salt you can thus ensure intake of sufficient minerals. Well, I can hear you thinking: but are we already getting too much salt? That is certainly the case when you eat a lot of ready-to-eat products, bread, biscuits and snacks. Moreover, you only get refined salt, sodium chloride, inside.

Little salt in raw food

However, if you eat pure and unprocessed food, there is a chance that you will not get enough salt. We need about 6 grams of salt per day. So look critically at your meals: are they processed and is salt added? Or do you eat everything fresh and prepared yourself? In the latter case you do not really get that much salt! My day always starts with a glass of sole of Celtic sea salt. Sole is a solution of this sea salt in water. I put 1 egg spoon in a glass of water. It has a nice, soft taste and I love to start the day with it.

Source of minerals

Lemon juice in your water - super healthy. By drinking this sole, you provide the body with minerals and salt, which benefits your health. From various people I have heard positive effects from the use of sole: a young woman who had a severe laryngitis a couple of times, has never had any problems since she used Celtic sea salt.

Losing weight: tips for losing weight and filtered water

Losing weight using a diet is possible. But you also lose weight if you make small adjustments to your lifestyle. We give you tips to reach your goal weight.

The basis: a clear and achievable goal

The most important thing is that your diet goal is achievable. 'Losing weight' is not concrete enough, determine exactly how much you want to lose and in how much time. Be aware why you are going to eat differently. Then there is a greater chance that you will be able to keep up in difficult times.
A strict diet is difficult to sustain. The lost kilos often come back in a short time: the well-known yo-yo effect. If you have been hungry for a few weeks and have lost weight, your body will then store the food you eat extra quickly as fat. Filtered water. What does drinking 2 liters of water a day with your body. Bottled water contains less minerals than tap water. You will arrive faster in proportion. In addition, there is a risk that during the strict lines you will get a shortage of all kinds of nutrients.

Keep track of what you eat

Only when you know what you eat can you choose to change it. Losing weight therefore starts with awareness. Keep a record of what you eat every day in a food diary, for example Mijn Eetmeter (from the Voedingscentrum). That way you get a better understanding of what you eat and drink. There are various apps that can help you with that. However, be careful not to count calories obsessively.

Move a lot

Exercise is an important part of losing weight. Research increasingly shows that light intensive exercise is healthy all day long. So don't always pick up the phone, but drop by your colleague. Take the stairs instead of the elevator. The Dutch Institute for Sport and Movement gives even more tips to get through the day actively. Do you want to start exercising? Build it up quietly.

Eat with attention

Do not eat too fast, you will miss the signal that you are full. Eating with attention ensures that you eat less. Food for the TV is therefore not a good idea. The distraction ensures that you do not know if you have enough. Taking small snacks and chewing well helps you eat less and less. Extra advantage: small snacks increase the taste sensation so that you eat less. Drink filtered water during your meals.

Use a small plate

The same portion appears larger on a small plate than on a large plate. Your brain thinks you have eaten more. Watch out with food avoidance. You may lose weight by avoiding sugar or wheat, but it cannot always be sustained. In addition, excluding certain foods is not always healthy. We need some nutrients every day and must therefore always be in the diet. If you have a diet that adheres to the guidelines for good nutrition (pdf), then you are in the right place.

Prevent hunger and temptations. Eat a lot of protein and fiber.

Are you often hungry between meals? Then eat enough protein with every meal, such as low-fat cottage cheese, egg or fish. Proteins stay in the stomach longer than carbohydrates. This also gives you a full feeling for longer. Also eat many fiber-rich products such as vegetables, fruit and whole-grain products. Fiber-rich food ensures that you are less likely to get hungry again. Low-fiber, sweet food has the opposite effect.

Drink enough, filtered water.

Water, an essential nutrient. Drinking water and tea gives a full feeling and therefore helps to eat less. In addition, sufficient fluid is important to keep urine production going and thus stimulate the removal of waste from the body. On average your body needs around 1.5 to 2 liters of fluid per day. Water and tea (without sugar) are the best. Avoid sugary drinks such as soda or fruit juice, these are high in calories. Filtered water from your own tap is the best way to stay hydrated.

Tip: Do you find water boring? Add mint, cucumber, a slice of lemon or ginger. Drinking spring water or mineral water is really not necessary. Tap water is much cheaper and just as healthy.

Watch out with alcohol

Alcoholic drinks are not healthy and contain many calories. In addition, alcohol removes the inhibition, so you can eat more than you want. The Health Council recommends not drinking alcohol or at least no more than 1 glass per day. Try to drink more filterd water.

Whether or not a snack?

Prevent muscle pain by drinking water. Research shows that it doesn't matter how often you eat for your metabolism. Drink filtered water. The main thing is how much you eat. Whether you get the same amount of calories with 3 meals or with multiple eating moments does not matter for weight loss. Eating multiple meals / snacks is less good for your teeth. Therefore, stick to about 7 eating times per day.
