Unfortunately, there is not a one-size-fits-all answer. Everyone is different. That is why it’s important to use a daily hydration tracker that creates a customized hydration plan according to your personal characteristics.
How do I know if I’m dehydrated?
Our bodies have a way of telling us when something is wrong. Signs can be infrequent, dark urination, dry mouth, constipation, headaches, frequent sickness, dull or dry skin, thirst, and increased fatigue.
Can drinking water help you lose weight?
Numerous studies show that drinking water increases the number of calories you burn.
Since water is naturally calorie-free, replacing it with other beverages - drinks typically loaded with sugars - means you consume fewer calories. As water is satisfying to the body when we’re properly hydrated we’re less likely to overeat, thus consuming fewer calories altogether.
How does my food intake impact my hydration?
Studies show 70-80% of the body’s water intake should come from the fluids we drink, leaving 20-30% to be absorbed in the foods we eat.
