We all know that drinking water is important. Good hydration in the summer. Yet we do far too little: research shows that 50 to 80 percent of people are chronically dehydrated and that this has an effect on our physical and emotional well-being.
When asked exactly how much you should drink every day, there is no scientifically founded answer. Calculate how much water you should drink per day. There is a guideline: it is usually recommended to count 30 ml of water per kilo of body weight. Women would need 1.5 to 2 liters on average, men 2 to 3 liters.
1 kg body weight = 30 ml of water per day:
60 kg = 1.8 liters
80 kg = 2.4 liters
100 kg = 3 liters
The formula gives you a guideline, but your body can also warn you if you drink too little. The American doctor Mahdi Brown gave a simple trick to test if you are dehydrated. Relax your hand, grab a piece of skin and pull it. Release it and observe what happens. If it springs right back you are well hydrated. If it takes a while and you have a fold, you are dehydrated. What drinking water really does for your skin.
