Actually I should drink more water. Your body needs water to survive and to function properly. On average, our body weight is about 2 / 3rd out of water (a little more for babies, less for the elderly). Water plays an essential role in many vital body functions: it maintains your body temperature, prevents dehydration and helps with many chemical reactions such as converting proteins, fats and carbohydrates into useful ingredients. A drop of 2% in the moisture content of your body immediately has a negative effect on your physical and mental state. Research also shows that insufficient drinking may be linked to an increased risk of kidney problems and may increase the risk of obesity and even certain cancers.
Tips to drink more water. To stay healthy, it is important to replace the water we lose through perspiration, urine and breath. Although we get some water through our diet, most of the fluids we drink.
The European Food Safety Authority recommends on average the following amount per day:
women: 1.6 liters of liquids
men: 2.0 liters of liquids
That corresponds to about 8 glasses of 200ml for women and 10 glasses of 200ml for men. Your intake, however, also depends on a number of other factors such as your weight, temperature (and amount of sweat) and how active you are. For example, if you have been exercising in warm weather, you should drink more.
You choose the best for water, but to alternate, you can also occasionally opt for other drinks such as tea, coffee, milk or fresh fruit juice.
Avoid fruit juices from concentrate, soft drinks or other drinks that are rich in added sugars. These are calorie-rich, bad for your teeth and cause your blood sugar level to fluctuate.
If you are tired of the taste of water, you can choose to add lemon, lime, orange, cucumber or cranberry juice to a glass of water.
When your body has a water shortage, you are dehydrated. One of the first signs of dehydration is thirst. Having a full glass of water all the time. Further characteristics of dehydration are:
produce dark and little urine
have a headache
have little energy
It is important that you take water immediately with dehydration. To prevent dehydration, make sure you take water at regular intervals.
In order to ensure that your body absorbs and uses water optimally, it is best to stick to these four rules of thumb:
1. Drink water in the morning just after getting up. This helps to get your organs going and remove toxins. Read here why a glass of lemon water is even better in the morning.
2. Drink water before a meal. A glass of water 30 minutes before a meal helps with the digestion and stilt the appetite. Research shows that you take fewer calories when you drink a glass of water half an hour before a meal. However, by drinking water just before or after a meal, you will dilute the digestive juices, making the digestion more difficult. So wait at least 30 minutes before eating something.
3. Drink water before you take a bath or shower. By drinking a glass of water before taking a hot shower or bath, you help lower your blood pressure.
4. Drink water before you go to sleep. In order to replenish the water that your body uses at night, you should drink a glass of water just before you go to sleep.
Of course, this depends on your personal schedule, but this list can already put you on your way to ensure that you get 8 to 10 glasses of water a day.
